Darchinyan robbed of a TKO! Wins easy technical decision!
07.10.06 - By Izyaslav “Slava” Koza: In a situation eerily similar to Arthur Abraham’s bout with Edison Miranda, Glenn Donaire suffered a broken jaw in his bout with Vakhtang “Vic” Darchinyan. The similarities ended there, however, as Donaire indicated to the ref, Tony Weeks, that he could not continue due to a “phantom” headbutt foul. The replay clearly showed Darchinyan landing a straight left that rocked Donaire at which point he stopped the action himself and told the doctor and the referee he could not go on.

Donaire clearly lost every round up to that point and was knocked down in the bout. It was abundantly clear that he was looking to quit and really the bout should have been stopped via technical knock out, as the blow came from a punch.
Darchinyan looked superb, and the one time Donaire decided to engage he found himself on the ground via the knockdown. Darchniyan missed with an uppercut and landed the left to cause the damage and the count. Darchinyan barely missed a punch during the whole fight, and was very entertaining in his third or fourth Showtime Debut.
