Donaire Blows Out Diminutive
Impressive 2nd Round KO Should
Come As No Surprise!
By William Trillo & Marlene Marquez @ Ringside
Bantamweight Fernando Montiel had no chance from the moment
the bell rang and when Nonito Donaire landed his left hook
at the 2:25 mark of round two this fight was essentially
over. After doing a shimmy through the count and somehow
getting to his feet Montiel was in no condition to fight and
after a couple more punches thrown by Donaire referee
Russell Mora stopped the "battle".
Sitting here at ringside it was no shock to me how much
bigger and stronger Nonito was than Montiel (see Victor
Conte). I have been screaming from the rooftops that Donaire
has made a living beating up little guys and tonight he did
Unlike his countryman Manny Pacquiao who has made a career
out of fighting and beating bigger and bigger guys, Donaire
has made a living feasting on smaller and older guys. You
can cry about that statement all you want but it's the
truth. Donaire says he is moving up to fight the best at 122
but I will believe that when I see it.
If Manny is known as The Mexi-cutioner then maybe we should
start calling Donaire the Midget-cutioner. Sorry to rain on
everyone's parade but I am yet to be too impressed as
Donaire now owns the WBC bantamweight title & WBO
Great punch? Yes.
Time to start picking on someone your own size? Definitely!
