Donaire knocks down Montiel,
snares 2 bantamweight titles

LAS VEGAS, Nevada  – Filipino fighter Nonito Donaire stopped Mexico's Fernando Montiel in the second round to take the World Boxing Council and World Boxing Organization bantamweight titles.

Donaire on Saturday took a right to the head from the champion, then immediately countered with a devastating left to the head that sent Montiel crumpling to the canvas.

Montiel rose to continue and Donaire rushed over to land a left and a right before referee Russell Mora stopped the fight after two minutes and 25 seconds of the second round.
