If you missed Donaire vs. Montiel last night like I did, you missed some fireworks. The Filipino Flash threw a left hook that nearly crippled Montiel. It looked scary right there for a bit and I’m not sure how Montiel even got to his feet. It was over soon thereafter.
In the first major bout of a huge weekend for Boxing, the worlds number one bantamweight Hozumi Hasegawa (28-3) was just stopped in the forth round by Mexico’s Fernando Montiel (41-2-2).
Hasegawa started out strong, and was dominating the fight up until getting caught with a couple of huge hooks in the forth. He slumped back against the ropes, and Montiel was quick to follow up unloading with shot after shot until the ref called a halt to the action awarding him the TKO. Montiel now adds Hasegawa’s WBC belt to his own WBO title.
