Donaire-Darchinyan II: Will it be repeat or revenge?

In a few hours from now, Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire will be facing an old foe in Vic “The Raging Bull” Darchinyan in the super flyweight division after six years of waiting. The Filipino Flash knocked out the heavy handed Australian-based Armenian champion with a vicious short left hook to the face of the champion in the fifth round to capture the IBF and IBO flyweight belts from the hands of Darchinyan on July 7, 2007 in Connecticut.

Donaire, who was coming off a decision loss to the very technical Cuban fighter Guillermo Rigondaeux in New York last year, wishes to make it to boxing’s top pound-for-pound list again by duplicating the victory he has had with Darchinyan six years ago. Darchinyan, on the other hand, vows to avenge that loss and to never commit the same mistake again. “It was not him who was pushing me in the corner in that fight, but I was the one pushing him and looking for a knockout. I jumped on a punch. Even Pacquiao, who was faster and stronger, do the same thing as I did. He jumped on a punch and got knocked out. That’s how it is in boxing, it happens,” explained Darchinyan about his loss to the Filipino Flash in 2007.

Donaire-Darchinyan II is a fight expected to be one that’s explosive and exciting. One is seeking redemption for a devastating loss six years ago, and the other wanting to regain pound-for-pound stature after being schooled by a very technical fighter happening a year ago. The pressure will be on the Raging Bull though, which might lead us to ask: Would it be a repeat or revenge? But the answer may no longer be important though, as long as it delivers and keeps true of a promise on either of the two would surely be getting knocked out as a result.
