Humberto Soto and Nonito Donaire Boxing Results

By “Bad” Brad Berkwitt

Last night at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, WBC Lightweight Champion Humberto Soto, 54-7-2, 32 KO’s retained his title with a hard fought unanimous decision over Urbano Antillon, 28-2, 20 KO’s. The fight was a back and forth phone booth battle throughout. Referee Ray Corona deducted a point from Antillon in round five for a low blow and that ended up costing him a draw. Scores were 115-112 and 114-113 (twice) all for Soto.

Two-division World Champion Nonito Donaire, 25-1, 17 KO’s continues to show he is the second best fighter out of the PI next to Manny Pacquiao when he destroyed former WBA Bantamweight Champion Wladimir Sidorenko, 22-3-2, 7 KO’s to set up a February 19th clash with WBC Bantamweight Champion Fernando Montiel. After hurting Sidorenko early on, Donaire dropped him with a left & right combination at the end of first round. Donaire scored another knockdown with a big left hand in round three and put the former champion down for the count in round four for good.
