Photos: Donaire KO's Darchinyan, Andrade Beats Vanes
American Bank Center, Corpus Christi, Texas - More than six years after their first meeting, Nonito Donaire (32-2, 21KOs) knocked out Vic Darchinyan (39-6-1, 28KOs) in the ninth round of their rematch. In the first fight, Donaire knocked out Darchinyan in five rounds. Donaire returns for the first time since the April decision loss to Guillermo Rigondeaux.
At the time of the stoppage, Darchinyan was leading 78-74 on two of the cards and it was a draw on the third.
In a battle of undefeated contenders, Demetrius Andrade (20-0, 13KOs) survived an early knockdown to outbox previously unbeaten Vanes Martirosyan (33-1-1, 21KOs), with a twelve round split decision, to capture the vacant WBO junior middleweight title. The scores were 115-112 for Vanes, 114-113 for Andrade and 117-110 for Andrade. The score of 115-112 for Vanes was criminal in nature.
