Filipino Flash Claims Victory – Nonito Donaire is in Las Vegas preparing to defend his WBO world super bantamweight title against the challenge of undefeated Jessie Magdaleno. The fight is the co-main event of Top Rank Boxing’s November 5th pay-per-view that sees Jessie Vargas fighting Manny Pacquiao in the main event.
Donaire (37-3) has captured world titles in four different weight classes throughout his storied career. The 33 year old has been through a few wars and in this fight he will be facing a man nine years younger than him. Nevertheless, Donaire feels that victory is his to claim and that he feels “limitless” as he prepares to defend his WBO belt. Magdaleno (23-0) comes from a fighting family that is based right there in Las Vegas. At age 24, he is considered the most advanced of three fighting brothers.
Nonito Donaire and his team engaged in a ritual early in the morning of November 1st and our roving cameraman Marcelino Castillo was there to capture the moment.
