Pacquiao adds Nonito Donaire Sr. to team of trainers for Mathysse fight

Nonito Donaire Sr., father of multi-time boxing world champion Nonito 'The Filipino Flash' Donaire Jr. was tapped to lend his expertise and beef up Manny Pacquiao's think-tank in preparation for the Filipino's title bid against Lucas Matthysse on July 15 at the Axiata Arena in Malaysia. A week after opening training camp, Pacquiao added Donaire to help out in plotting tactical plans against Matthysse, the reigning WBA welterweight champion from Argentina. "Donaire will serve as one of the assistant coaches," said Pacquiao, who did two trial rounds with the mitts with the father of former world champion Nonito Donaire (Junior). It was Donaire Sr. who trained and honed his son, who later won multiple former world championships in three weight divisions. "So far, so good. I am happy with my current team," said Pacquiao, who took two days off on Saturday and Sunday to rest and relax, coming off a controversial loss last year in Australia against local brawler Jeff Horn. Pacquiao went scuba diving Sunday and was refreshed to do his road work the morning after. Pacquiao is trying to have an all-Filipino line-up in his bid to win his 11th world title against a formidable opponent who has knocked out 36 of his 39 wins or a whopping 92 percent ratio. Matthysse has only lost four times in his career. Long time friend and confidant Buboy Fernandez would still act as head coach along with assistant trainer Raides "Nonoy" Neri. Pacquiao is still about to name another team member soon, the person who will help him in his strength and conditioning. - RELEASE.....»»

Donaire s career-defining fight vs Frampton live on SKY Sports PPV

Former world boxing champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. fights for another world title when he goes head to head against Irishman Carl “The Jackal” Frampton for the interim World Boxing Organization (WBO) Featherweight division title, in the Irishman’s own backyard at the SSE Arena in Belfast, United Kingdom. The fight will air live on SKY Sports Pay-Per-View on April 22 at 2:30 AM, with same day replays at 6 AM, 9:30 AM, 4 PM, and 7:30 PM.   Boxing analyst Atty. Ed Tolentino said that this fight is make-or-break for Donaire (38-4, 24 KOs), who hails from Bohol. “Donaire is walking a tight rope. He is at the crossroads opposite Frampton in this fight. This could be the swan song if he loses,” he said. Despite being the underdog of the match there is still much to look forward to from the former five-time world champion. “Even as he gets older, Donaire is still extremely dangerous because of his one-punch power and excellent counterpunching skill,” added Tolentino of the 2012 Fighter of the Year of the Boxing Writers Association of America (BWAA). On the other hand, the 31-year old Frampton (24-1, 14 KOs), fondly called “The Jackal,” is a former world junior featherweight and featherweight champion, and holds a hometown advantage over the Filipino slugger. “Frampton is a great athletic boxer with fast hand and packs serious power in his punches,” Tolentino said of the Irish fighter, who, like his foe was also touted as Fighter of the Year by the BWAA and The Ring magazine in 2016. The analyst believes that if Donaire prevails over Frampton, he will be guaranteed at one last shot for glory against the reigning WBO champion Oscar Valdez from Mexico once the lynchpin heals from a broken jaw and resumes his reign.

Experts’ Eye: Donaire vs. Frampton - Part 2: More To Gain, More to Lose

With just a few days to go before the highly-anticipated showdown between four-division world champion Nonito Donaire Jr. and two-division world champion Carl Frampton for the WBO Interim Featherweight World Championship, it’s time to see what the experts have to say about this upcoming matchup. We asked three boxing experts for their two cents on the upcoming featherweight clash between Donaire Jr. and Frampton: Nigel Collins - Boxing Writer for ESPN, former Editor-in-Chief for Ring Magazine, International Boxing Hall of Famer Brian Campbell - Combat Sports Writer for CBS Sports. Former host and writer for ESPN and Grantland. Atty. Ed Tolentino - Veteran Philippine sportswriter and boxing analyst for ABS-CBN Sports.   In this second installment, we ask who’s got more to gain from capturing the WBO Interim Featherweight World Championship, Nonito Donaire Jr. or Carl Frampton?  — — Nigel Collins Winning the WBO interim featherweight title would put Donaire in line for a shot at WBO 126-pound titleholder Oscar Valdez. The same is true for Frampton, but at this stage of his career he could bounce back from a loss easier than Donaire. On the other hand, if Frampton loses in a definitive manner on his home turf, it would be such a massive blow to his career he might seriously consider retiring from the ring.   Brian Campbell Between the two, Donaire has more to gain from this fight even if you remove the interim title from the equation. While Donaire has never quite had a bad enough losing skid where the topic of retirement was ever seriously broached, he remains firmly in the twilight of what has been a great professional career. A victory of this caliber over a prime fighter the talent and name value of Frampton would be a major feather in Donaire's cap, and would instantly catapult him back into the fray as one of the top 126-pound fighters in the world. The fight also has large value for Frampton but it has more to do with getting Donaire's name as a victory on his record and building toward a fight against the very best in the division. This fight represents a stepping stone for Frampton where as for Donaire, it could be his final shot at a fight this important.    Atty. Ed Tolentino Winning the interim belt  will provide the winner with a shot at the regular title held by Oscar Valdez. In fact, if Valdez moves up in weight or gives up the crown, the interim champ will be promoted to regular world champ. Right now, Frampton has more to gain if he wins because at his age, he still has plenty of fighting years left. Donaire, at 35, is looking to simply extend his career with a win. For Donaire, every fight could be his last fight. For Frampton, Donaire is just a ticket towards a return to the featherweight throne which he once held. — —   In Part One, all three of our experts were unanimous in saying that the younger, more aggressive Carl Frampton is the favorite over Nonito Donaire Jr. This time around, we see a bit of differing opinions, with Nigel Collins and Brian Campbell saying that a WBO Interim Featherweight World Title win would do a lot more for Donaire. Understandably so.   If Donaire can manage a win over a guy who’s in the upper half of the division in terms of rankings, aside from becoming the WBO’s Interim 126-pound champ, it also significantly raises Donaire’s place in the rankings as well. Atty. Ed Tolentino on the other hand argues that while beating Frampton will do Donaire a lot of good, it doesn’t change the fact that ‘The Filipino Flash’ is on the tail end of his illustrious career. Collins however adds that a loss to Donaire could ultimately force Frampton into retirement. — — Donaire or Frampton? Who’s got more to gain? Be sure you don’t miss out on this massive featherweight matchup! Watch on Sunday, April 22nd, 6:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! You can also catch the fight LIVE on Sunday, April 22nd, 2:30 AM on SKY Sports Pay-Per-View for only P199! Watch out for more Experts’ Eye soon!.....»»
