February 20th, 2011 By Pedro FernandezKO HIGHLIGHT OF 2011 THUS FAR!
San Francisco, CA- Yeah, if I was Manny Pacquiao, I wouldn’t want Nonito Donaire on my undercards. Not before last night, and certainly not after! Philippine born Donaire pushed his record to 25-1, 19 KOS) with yet another classic left hook that defending champ Fernando Montiel could not recover from. I mean, we’re talking, bang, one shot heard around the world just like the 2007 Donaire KO of Vic Darchinyan. I’ve been trying to tell you all how good Donaire is. Yes, he is superior to Manny Pacquiao technically, but the Filipino boxing fan casts Nonito aside because Manny is a God. Well guess what, the Philippines has two boxing Gods, and Nonito Donaire is one of them!
HEY VIC, GOTTA’ STOP RUNNING!
In the two and a half years since Nonito destroyed Vic Darchinyan with a carbon copy of the left hook he took out Montiel with. In that time the Aussie has done everything he could to not fight Donaire a second time. He moved up in weight, then agreed to a fight, only to pull away from the contract signing, this even after Nonito agreed to take less money than a guy he had already knocked senseless. Now at 118, there isn’t much room to wiggle out of a second Donaire fight. I’m expecting Vic to move to 122 lbs. sooner rather than later in order to once again deny Donaire a second fight, one that could make them both a good chunk of change.
