Donaire, Viloria victorious!

IBF/IBO flyweight champion Nonito Donaire (21-1, 14 KOs) crushed previously unbeaten Raul ‘La Cobrita’ Martinez (24-1, 14 KOs) over four rounds one-sided rounds on Saturday night at the famous Araneta Coliseum in Metro Manila, Philippines. Donaire, best known for for knocking out Vic Darchinyan, showed his power again in this fight flooring Martinez twice in round one, again in round two, and a final time in round four prompting referee Pete Podgorski to stop the fight even though Martinez appeared to be able to continue. Time was 2:42. It was Donaire’s third successful defense.
Jr flyweight Brian Viloria (25-2, 15 KOs) dethroned long time IBF champion Ulises Solis (28-2-2, 20 KOs) with a spectacular eleventh round knockout. Viloria had a great start in the fight, hurting Solis in round one and landing good right hands in over the first five rounds. Solis was also cut over both eyes and had deducted points in rounds three and five for low blows. Over the second half of the fight, Solis began to outbox Viloria, but the “Hawaiian Punch” got his second wind late and dropped Solis to his knees with a huge right hand at 2:56 of round eleven. The champion was unable to beat the count. This is the second title reign for Viloria, who previously held the WBC belt. Solis was making his ninth defense of the belt.
Minimumweight Denver Cuello (16-2-5, 8 KOs) claimed the vacant WBC International belt with a fourth round KO of Hiroshi Matsumoto (18-10-4, 8 KOs). Cuello dropped Matsumoto in round three and finished him with an uppercut in round four.
Light flyweight Sonny Boy Jaro (30-7-5, 19 KOs) needed just 74 seconds to annihilate Eriberto ‘Yukka’ Gejon (25-5-1, 14 KOs). An overhand right dropped Gejon for the count.
Super flyweight Drian Francisco (16-0-1, 12 KOs) KO’d overmatched Sahril Fabanyo (2-2-1) with a left hook to the body at 1:30 of round two.
