Friday, December 14, 2012
MANILA -- President Benigno Aquino III expressed support for WBO super bantamweight title Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire as he defends his title against Mexican warrior Jorge “Travieso” Arce in Houston, Saturday night (Sunday in Manila).
“I wish him well,” President Aquino told reporters when asked about his message to Donaire.
The Chief Executive appreciates Donaire’s effort to dedicate some of his previous fights to Aquino’s late mother former President Corazon Aquino.
Aquino said he hopes that Donaire achieves his dreams, not just in boxing but also in his personal life.
“I hope he achieves all his dreams,” Aquino said.
He also hoped that Donaire would continue to be a role model and inspire Filipinos all over the world.
Donaire earlier said his fight against Arce will be a “war” and will have to be like the fight of Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao and Mexican fighter Juan Manuel-Marquez. (Jill Beltran/Sunnex)
