Donaire stops Marquez in 8

By Sam Gregory: In the co-main event of the July 10th edition of Showtime’s Championship Boxing southpaw Hernan Marquez 27-2 with 20 KO’s challenged Filipino Nonito Donaire 24-1 with 16 KO’s for the interim WBA world super flyweight championship in a scheduled 12 round bout.

At the opening bell both men came out fighting in the southpaw stance testing their opponent throwing jabs; Marquez landed a few good shots early on, Donaire landed a solid right hand just before the closing bell.

In the first couple rounds Donaire was able to land his punches first; Marquez was a game fighter and stood toe to toe with his opponent.

In the fifth round Donaire switched back to the orthodox stance; soon after Donaire caught Marquez with a combination that started with a left hook and by the time the right hand landed Marquez was on the canvas.

In the seventh round Marquez landed a combination that had little effect on his opponent. Donaire doubled up on his combinations and in the eighth round Donaire caught Marquez with a left uppercut that stopped Marquez at 2:59 of round eight.
