Nonito which is in control of his fight for the world boxing championship knocked-down Arce in Round 3. The latter received second KO at 2:59 seconds at the 3rd round. A solid upper-cut was released by Donaire that caused his fall.

Before this battle, Donaire defeated South African Jeffrey Mathebula last July and Japan's Toshiaki Nishioka in October after taking the title with a split decision last February over Puerto Rico's Wilfredo Vazquez.

Nonito Donaire's record improved to 31-1-0, 20 KOs while Jorge Arce's record now goes 61-7-2, 46 KOs. With Donaire's spectacular win today, he might be a candidate for "Fighter of the Year".

Arce already announced after the fight that he will retirand said he would take care of his family.

Pain of last week was redeemed through Donaire's win. Filipinos are now celebrating for the victory that uplift our pride in the boxing sports. In the same day last week, People's champ Manny Pacquiao was defeated by Juan Manuel Marquez via knock-out at round 6.
