Vic Darchinyan & Nonito Donaire’s Fight is a Rematch

Six years ago, Nonito Donaire burst onto the boxing scene with a one punch, fifth round knockout of dominant flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan.

Since then, Donaire proved it was not a fluke, racking up a 31-1-0 record with 20 KOs.

He was named 2012 Fighter of the Year for his four victories including a super bantamweight belt with speed, skills and courage in two decisions and two TKOs.

At the start of 2013, Donaire appeared ready to write a few new chapters of his success story.

It was not to be because he lost a decision to two time Cuban Olympic gold medalist Guillermo Rigondeaux.

Donaire barely made the weight limit and failed to show much power in the disappointing loss.

Donaire has gone back to the drawing board and after seven months off during which he became a first time father, had shoulder surgery and moved up in weight class.

Today, Donaire will face Darchinyan in a rematch on Sunday at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.

The Filipino Flash hopes to get his high flying career back.

It is the bout with the most on the line for both boxers and the winner will move toward a title fight while the loser will face an uncertain future.
