The World Boxing Organization super bantamweight title, as well as the country’s pride, is at stake today as Nonito Doinaire Jr. defends his crown against Jorge Arce in Houston, Texas.

 

"It means everything right now after the devastating loss of Manny (Pacquiao)," ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer is quoted as saying in a report by Edri Aznar on Sun.Star Online. Last weekend, boxer and congressman Manny Pacquiao lost by knockout to another Mexican boxer, Juan Manuel Marquez.

 

Donaire said, though, that he is not out to avenge Pacquiao’s loss. "The Pacquiao thing was unfortunate, but that's part of boxing. He is still a legend and still Manny Pacquiao, a legend of the Philippines. He opened the door for me and all the other Filipino fighters," he said.
