22 October Nonito Donaire w pts 12 Omar Narvaez, WaMu Theatre, Manhattan, NYC, New York, USA - WBC/WBO. Referee: Benji Estevez (jnr). Scorecards: 120-108, 120-108, 120-108. On 6 November, Shinsuke Yamanaka stopped Christian Esquivel inside 11 rounds at the Yoyogi Gym, Tokyo, Japan to win what should be seen as the WBC ‘second tier’ title. Although billed for the title after Donaire stated that he would be moving up a division, when the contest took place the latter had not confirmed his decision. Having decided to move up a weight division and after signing for a fight against Wilfredo Vazquez for the WBO junior featherweight crown, Donaire relinquished both of his titles on 24 November. This enabled Jorge Arce, who dropped down a division, to meet Angky Angkotta to decide the vacant WBO title and the WBC to appoint Yamanaka as their undisputed champion.
