Pardon my absence to talk about the resounding victory of the Filipino Flash, Nonito Donaire over Jorge Arce via a third-round knockout to retain his WBO super bantamweight crown.

After Manny Pacquiao’s shocking loss to Juan Manuel Marquez, the wounds of the defeat has rubbed on this corner leading to forget that another pride and joy of Gen.Santos City has a scheduled fight few days after that fateful December the 8th.

By the 15th of December, Nonito scored his 20th knockout and such win, in a way, made up for Manny’s setback and brought happiness to residents of Gen.Santos City and the rest of the Philippines.

While there are talks that Manny’s wife and mother wanted him to retire, Nonito has still a long, long way to go.

And I hope he will be earning like Manny because boxing is such a risky profession and the possibility of early retirement is just looming in the air.
