Donaire TKOs Montiel, bags bantamweight crowns

     MANILA, Philippines (2nd UPDATE) – Filipino bantamweight boxer Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire proved himself relentless after dethroning Mexican opponent Ferdinand Montiel in their headliner fight at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, Saturday night (Sunday morning in Manila).


    In a quick match, Donaire stopped Montiel via a technical knockout (KO) in the second round.

    In the first round, Montiel showed that he has experience and skills in the division by consistently evading Donaire's attacks.

   Donaire kept being aggressive but his punches failed to land on Montiel. In the second round, Donaire then played it down by accepting Montiel's attacks. The Filipino played with his improved defense and evaded the countering Montiel.

   A minute before the round concluded, an energetic Donaire then powered a left hook to Montiel's face knocking him down to victory. With the win, the 28-year-old bagged the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Organization bantamweight crowns.

   Donaire now ups his record to 26-1 with 18 KOs. Montiel, on the other hand, falls at 44-3-2.
Montiel cannot make the post-fight press conference as he was sent to the hospital. According to a tweet by Top Rank promotions, Montiel "was sent to the hospital to be checked due to the way he was knocked out."
