In a recent interview, Nonito Donaire said that he is excited about his ring return and once to prove that he still got what it takes to be a world champion and part of his goal is to unify the 126 lb division title.
Now with a new promoter Ringstar, Nonito Donaire is thankful for the new opportunity and chance to showcase his skills. Nonito burst to the boxing scene when he upset and knocked out Vic Darchinyan with his patented counter left hook. He has collected a lot of career-defining bouts since then and have defeated great fighters, was able to continue his dominance and was even awarded fighter of the year.
Below are some of the accoloades on Nonito Donaire:

His opponent, Ruben Hernandes is enjoying a 7 fight winning streak and he is determined to put a stop on the streak to avoid being a stepping stone for the young boxer.

The Filipino Flash to Defend his Title in Manila?

The Flash is back! After an impressive show against tough Cesar Juarez of Mexico to win the WBO super bantamweight title, Nonito is back and he is again a hot commodity in boxing. He is a world champion oand we think he still got the skills and the power plus an improved decision making inside the ring.

Donaire who is enjoying a 3 fight winning streak could be defending his title in front of his hometown the Philippines. You read that right. Unlike Manny Pacquiao who we may never see again fight in our homeland because of course, there’s just more money outside. Nonito’s case is different.

We heard that broadcasting giant ABS-CBN, Top Rank and local boxing promotion ALA, recently agreed to a partnership that would bring in big fights to the Philippines including one with Nonito Donaire who has also signed a 3 fight deal with Bob Arum’s Top Rank according to our sources.
Bob Arum is planning to host an event April 2016 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum for Donaire’s first title defense for the WBO Super Bantamweight title.

His potential opponent?

El Ruso Mexicano, the Russian Mexican is on the top of the list of  potential challengers for Donaire’s belt. Evgeny Gradovich is a 29-year-old, 5’8 fighter with a record of 21 -1 -1 can be a tough match-up for Donaire. This guy is sleek and a tactical fighter like Rigondeaux. Remember that Rigondeaux once beat Donaire in a chess match.
Donaire is still in the Philippines but could stay here until the fight to train if the negotiations with Gradovich would push through. 

Why Donaire?

Mark Villanueva and Nonito Donaire
In a way his first loss after twelve years of dominance in his division hurt his morale more than being knocked out, caught in a fierce exchange. It was not by chance that at the apogee of his career he had been clearly outboxed at the end of twelve humiliating rounds in the hands of a relative new comer, Guillermo Rigondeaux, whose record at that time was merely 11-0 compared to his 31-1, and being Pound For Pound number 2 in the world besides. He complained about the unwillingness of his opponent to match his prowess, for moving away too much, but did so with a swollen face. The Cuban confounded him with his slickness and dazzling footwork, knowing when to move in and egress before a counter. A desultory Nonito Donaire Jr. was continuously outsmarted and, except for scoring a flash knockdown, schooled on end and never had a chance to recover himself. From the inside, looking out, he was a fighter whose confidence had been perforated.
Wrought, pummeled to the ground. As I watched Donaire crumble to the canvas I had to ask myself why I believed in Nonito Donaire Jr. in the first place, why had I followed him at the incipience of his boxing career ‘til he became a champion for the first time, to being much sought-after, and the heydays of reaping sweet accolades, such as the Fighter of the year award.
A bloodied Nonito Donaire desperately tried to hang on until he was completely hammered by Nicholas Walters, a Jamaican world champion who was just too big a foe for him, whose size overcast a gloomy shadow of doubt on his prostrate body. His aura of invincibility was gone.   He had been struck to the ground as if he was nothing, not even a worthy contender, but meaningless. Forgive the word: A bum.
But who is Nonito Donaire, really? What is to become of him? We reassess.
More importantly, these are questions Nonito Donaire Jr. was forced to ask himself.
The recent clash with Cesar Juarez of Mexico unveiled to us the many facets of Donaire we have not seen, or merely forgotten. He came in with the usual aggression that is now exercised with more patience in seeing it through, deftness, and subtle caution. Expectant of a left hook looming over to punctuate an attack, I was caught by surprise with a right cross instead, something I have personally witnessed him hone with his father months ago. He slid past a non-committal jab and rammed Juarez with his weight behind it and knocked him down in the fourth. He worked on Juarez’ body early on, whammed him on the side, and was no longer the same fighter who headhunts all night. A quick turn of his body, followed by a momentous left hook worked, as it had almost always in the past, and knocked Juarez down harder for the second time in the fourth.
A slip in the sixth round seems to have injured Donaire’s ankle, and his father acknowledged this after the fight. His movement was sustained but the punch output had palpably decreased, so he was cornered more often than expected. He simply could have been running out of gas, too. It was highly unusual of Donaire to be lying against the ropes, circumscribed in a corner, but even when he was he drew on instinct and responded with perspicacity. He fought out of character and in unexpected spaces throughout the match, roughshod, bleeding, at the edge, but most of all, willing and unafraid. It was uncharacteristic of him to be exposed in certain spots and yet overall he was still the same fighter we have come to appreciate over time.
Cesar Juarez is not the kind of fighter I suppose could beat a boxer of Donaire’s caliber, and he beat him up in a sanguinary manner. He is predictable and there is no air to it. That means you can predict him to always show up to fight with no fuss. He worked on the very little that he has up to the maximum in a given time and space, so he works on his serious limitations with limitless dedication, and that’s how he breaks out in the ring. It no longer mattered whatever elements he brought into the fight; he just fought with whatever he had as hard as he could for as long as it took. When we were all likely to expect a usual left hook from Donaire to land on his blind spot, an uppercut would project from underneath and disrupt Juarez’ attacks, and he knew no other way to respond or fight than to bring it still. He would take it and reset. He was very brave and stoic. He fought like a man you would never want to deal with because he was not scared of losing.
It was the most tortuous match I’ve seen of Nonito Donaire Jr. Was he the same Nonito Donaire Jr. I believed in years ago? Yes he was, and no, he was not. If the Juarez fight was the first you’ve seen him in, you might take him differently. He was badly hurt, at the point of quitting and at the same time most persistent, and versatile (showing he had learned so much and is still evolving as a prizefighter).
So why Donaire? I have been asked this question a number of times over the years, for my predilections for him, and I ask myself that same question now. He is an exceptionally skilful boxer who no longer relies on his talent to win, nor comes across supercilious, and is willing to really, really work on it, so the fans will love that about him. Now, we’ve come to love a more complete fighter he was hammered into.

Resilient Juarez came back strong and gave Nonito a fight that he would later call his toughest.
Nonito in the end emerged victorious and was clearly the better fighter that night getting a unanimous decision and once again putting his name on the podium of boxing by wining back the title that he lost a couple of years back.

Five division world champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” will spar later today in Puerto Rico on the eve of his press conference to formally announce his WBO super bantamweight title fight against tough Mexican Cesar Juarez who is ranked No.1, one slot ahead of Nonito who is rated No.2.

Team Donaire arrived in Puerto Rico sometime around 11:00 a.m. which was almost midnight in Manila and his father/trainer “Dodong” Donaire told the New Standard/boxingmirror.com that Nonito would spar later in the day with Fidel Navarette of Highland, Indiana with whom he has been sparring in Las Vegas.
“Dodong” Donaire said “Nonito is doing fine. He is doing good.”
The commitment of Donaire could be gauged by the fact that he brought in his sparring partner Navarette and that they would spar later today.

His father/trainer described Navarette as “tough and a little bit taller and he gave Nonito good work to make sure he is in shape and he is about 70 percent right now.”

He said Donaire “cannot relax against Juarez because he has power too and he is coming to fight.“

“Dodong” Donaire underscored the fact that Nonito is a different fighter from the recent past pointing out that “he is really fast this time, hand-speed, legs are there. That’s why I am looking forward to a showdown with Vasily Lomachenko but we have to finish this job first.”

Michael Koncz don’t want Donaire on Pacquiao undercard, Put him in please!

Bob Arum had suggested that five-division world champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” would be on the Pacquiao card  this Novemebr but Michael Koncz discarded the proposal claiming it wouldn’t be an advantage business-wide for Pacquiao whose MP Promotions is a co-promoter of his fights with Top Rank. Koncz said “how is he going to sell one more ticket that Manny can’t sell?”

Koncz also said “I’m not saying he doesn’t have fans, I’m not talking bad about him, Manny will sell the entire Philippine audience. No matter who you put on the card, they are not going to bring in anything substantial as to the Philippine audience. Manny will do all of that.” Koncz posed the question “Why will we spend $1 million in profits on a fight that’s not going to generate any actual additional income, if it does, it will be very little. It makes no business sense. We are co-promoters so we share in the expenses, we share in the profits.” He made it clear that “unless Bob Arum can tell me how it’s financially advantageous to us” Donaire won’t be on the Pacquiao card in Macau.

Michael Koncz you are selfish, put Nonito on the card because it makes total sense,  Nonito is not only popular in the Philippines but also around the world, you are not looking at the whole picture, he would bring in more fans,  more Filipinos together, Its not always about the money.

If Pacquiao truly want to help Pinoy boxers he should help Nonito Donaire by putting him on the card and giving him the exposure that he needs. You cant argue that its not good for the true boxing fans.

Nonito Donaire not happy with his win! even with a knockdown, Highlights video

Nonito Donaire vs Simpiwe Vetyeka had a lot of promise as two of the best fighters collide for the WBA Featherweight super world title belt. While the fight was full of actions we knew that something is going to give and its either one of these fighter gets knockout early or the referee would stop the fight, and indeed the referee did because of the nasty cut Donaire suffered in the very first round.

Nonito Donaire with one eye had a lot of success even knocking down Vetyeka and was awarded with the Technical Unanimous Decision. The lifeless ring announcer announced that it was a 49-46 score by all of the 3 judges, but it was really impossible to score 49 since its only the 4th round and its a 10 points maximum per round.

Post interview shows a frustrated Nonito Donaire, he admitted that he was not satisfied and has proactively offered Vetyeka with a rematch.
