Australian boxer Vic Darchinyan is back on track for more world title glory after stopping talented 22-year-old Filipino southpaw Cris Paulino.
Three divisions world champion Darchinyan KO’d Paulino who came into the contest 14-2 with 4 knockouts.
Darchinyan forced Paulino to retire at the conclusion of round two of the WBC Asia Super Bantamweight Championship.

The hard-hitting Darchinyan record now stands at 42-8-1 with 31 knockouts.
Darchinyan said while at the super bantamweight of 55.34 kg he was comfortable he would have no trouble and be faster dropping down a division to the bantamweight limit of 53.53 kg.
