Mundo gugulatin ni Donaire
GUGULATIN umano ni Nonito Donaire Jr. ang mundo sa pamamagitan nang pagdurog kay Fernando Montiel sa kanilang 12-round bout sa susunod na linggo.
Maglalaban sina Donaire at Montiel para sa unified World Boxing Council (WBC) at World Boxing Organization (WBO) bantamweight title belts na tangan ng Mehikano.
Magaganap ang sagupaan sa February 19, Sabado (Linggo sa Maynila) sa Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, sa Las Vegas, Nevada.
“There are plenty out there who doubt my ability as a champion, and that’s fine (with me). It’s up to me to prove them (wrong). Once I take Montiel down, then that is more of a sweet victory,” pahayag ni Donaire. “I think the big boys will notice what I’m capable of. What I bring on the table, what I bring to the audience. I think it will definitely get my name out there as one of the elite. There will be no more doubters left out there if I get past Montiel.”
Si Donaire, na binansagang “Filipino Flash,” ay dating kampeon sa World Boxing Association (WBA) super flyweight, at International Boxing Federation and International Boxing Organization flyweight. Gilbert Perdez
