In a very interesting announcement it appears that we will get a long awaited rematch of the Ring Magazine 2007 Upset of the year as Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20) faces Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28) for a second time.
Back in '07 when the men first met Darchinyan was seen as the star of the lower weights whilst Donaire was almost unknown. The victory for the Filipino helped launch him into becoming a star though now his career is seemingly the one at risk with his recent loss to Guillermo Rigondeaux really fresh in the mind, a loss here to Darchinyan would see his stock plummet further.
The bout, penciled in for a HBO broadcast is expected to take place on November 16th in Texas, USA.
Of course Donaire will start as the favourite though this is a bout that Darchinyan has wanted since he was stopped in their first bout and if Donaire isn't switched on he may come undone against a hard hitting, determined and very hungry fighter seeking revenge for his most embarrassing loss to date.
