Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. defends his IBF/IBO flyweight titles against unbeaten Raul “Cobrita” Martinez today at the Araneta Coliseum.
“He’s undefeated. He’s strong. He’s young. He’s a great fighter. He’s heavy-handed. He’s no joke,” Donaire told the Philippine Star, who almost ran out of words to describe his opponent
The 26-year-old champion credits new trainers Gerry, Dodie Boy and Jonathan Peñalosa for keeping him in tip-top shape for the fight.
Meanwhile, former WBC champion Brian Viloria tries to wrest the IBF light flyweight crown from Ulises Solis of Mexico in the other half of the double world title fight card dubbed “The Flash and the Furious.”
