Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20 KO’s) and Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28 KO’s) will be mixing it up this Saturday night on HBO from the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. It’s been exactly six years since Donaire and Darchinyan last fought in 2007, and it didn’t turn out too well for Darchinyan with him getting stopped in the 5th round.
Chances are that Darchinyan won’t do any better on Saturday night than he did back in 2007. A lot of boxing fans wanted to see a Donaire-Darchinyan rematch over the years, but it seems like a lot of the interest in that fight died down a long time ago after Darchinyan started losing regularly. He’s now been beaten in two out of his last four fights, and he’s even struggling to beat lesser fighter.
