DONAIRE TAKES WBA TITLE, brags a headline of the Inquirer.
We salute you kababayan for making it to the limelight despite the lack of pompuos celebrations accorded to Manny Pacquiao.
Nonito Donaire Jr. unanimously decisioned a rugged Rafael “El Torito” Concepcion of Panama for the WBA interim title at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas Sunday morning (Manila time), the news read.
Donaire became the fifth Filipino to gain a two-division world title. He is from Talibon, Bohol, the same town where President Carlos Garcia was born.
