Former five division world champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire did really well when sparring six rounds against Fidel Navarette of Indiana yesterday.
Nonito’s father/trainer “Dodong” Donaire told the New Standard/boxingmirror.com that his son “sparred really well and it was a great showing” adding that he was “very happy with what I saw.”
He said Donaire showed “speed, power, everything and was smart inside the ring. He doesn’t want to get hit which is our game plan, similar to Floyd Mayweather Jr.”
“Dodong” Donaire said “our game plan is not to get hit a lot. You can’t avoid getting hit all the time but the idea is to minimize it.”
Team Donaire returns to Las Vegas tomorrow and will continue training there. (Click to read full story)
