MANILA, Philippines – Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire is back in Manila following his sensational victory over veteran Mexican Jorge Arce.
Donaire decided to make a quick trip to the Philippines to thank his fans before returning to San Francisco to celebrate Christmas with his family.
“The Filipino Flash” retained his WBO super bantamweight belt with his victory against Arce. It was his fourth win of the year after defeating Wilfredo Vazquez Jr., Jeffrey Mathebula and Toshiaki Nishioka.
Sports analysts believe Donaire’s performances in 2012 is worthy of “Fighter of the Year” honors, but “The Filipino Flash” remains humble in the face of success. -- Mornings @ ANC, December 19, 2012
