SYDNEY — Former IBF, WBC, WBA champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan (42-8-1, 31 KOs) forced Cris “The King” Paulino (14-2, 4 KOs) to retire at the conclusion of round two of a scheduled ten round bout to capture a WBC regional super bantamweight title at the Alexandria Basketball Stadium, Sydney, NSW, Australia on Saturday, Fight News reports.

Paulino connected with accurate combinations in round one against the aggressive Darchinyan, who had problems finding the range against the mobile sharpshooting Filipino. The 39-year-old former IBF, WBC, WBA world champion Darchinyan stepped up a gear in round two and dropped his opponent with a power body shot. Paulino took the eight count and then finished the contest on unsteady legs and his cornerman pulled Paulino out of the contest to save him from further punishment.
