HOUSTON: Nonito Donaire stopped Jorge Arce with a left hook late in the third round Saturday night to retain the WBO super-bantamweight title and send the Mexican veteran into retirement.
Donaire, from the Philippines, improved to 31-1 with his 20th knockout. Arce dropped to 61-7-2.
Donaire won in front of a raucous, mostly pro-Arce crowd of 7,250 at Toyota Center.
The 30-year-old Donaire hasn’t lost a fight in more than 11 years. He also knocked down Arce with about 2 minutes to go in the second round with a right-left combination.
The fight headlined HBO’s “World Championship Boxing” season finale, and the broadcast marked Larry Merchant’s last after 35 years as a ringside commentator for the network.
