Nonito Donaire – The Filipino Flash, Nonito Donaire (37-3), has exuded confidence all week in the build-up to Saturday’s WBO World super bantamweight title defense against undefeated Jessie Magdaleno (23-0).
Donaire is a four weight class world champion, and this fight will be the second defense of the WBO title he captured back in December of 2015 when he defeated Cesar Juarez in Puerto Rico. Donaire sat quietly during the press conference, hiding behind mirrored glasses. He calmly took in his opponent’s speech, complete with a teammate’s elaborate introduction, and he did not look all that impressed as he walked up to issue his response.
Seeing Donaire throughout the week, his response to Magdaleno was something he had been thinking about for a while. Short and sweet.
The press conference went down at the Wynn Resorts Hotel in Las Vegas on Thursday, November 3rd and featured all of the event’s undercard fighters. Footage captured by TBC’s Marcelino Castillo.
