Donaire visits Philippines Consulate in New York
Nonito Donaire was honored at the Philippines Consulate in New York on Wednesday.
A Philippines native who arrived in America when he was 11 years old, THE RING's No. 1-rated and WBC/WBO bantamweight titleholder Nonito Donaire was the guest of honor at a diplomatic reception on Wednesday at the Philippines Consulate in New York.
The 28-year-old Donaire (26-1, 18 KOs) visited Mario Lopez de Leon, Jr., Consul General of The Republic of The Philippines.
Donaire will face WBO junior bantamweight beltholder Omar Narvaez (35-0, 23 KOs) on Saturday night in his first-ever performance at New York's Madison Square Garden.
Donaire will pursue his 26th-straight victory against the unbeaten Navaez in the HBO-televised bout, and is coming off a second-round knockout of former titleholder Fernando Montiel.
