Update: Donaire vs Narvaez undercard fight and official weigh-in updated below.
I believe that Nonito “The Flash” Donaire can follow the footstep of the popular Filipino boxer Manny “PACMAN” Pacquiao and I’ve heard from the news that Nonito Donaire announced his possible upcoming fight against the undefeated boxer from Argentina named Omar Andres Narvaez on October 22, 2011. He said this in an interview with ABS-CBN, a local news/entertainment network in the Philippines when he visited the country to finalize his November 2011 church wedding with wife Rachel Donaire.
The last time that I saw Donaire fight was the boxing event with Fernando Montiel where he demolished the latter with a tremendous and impressive result.
In the interview with Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN, he said that he is excited already of the Donaire vs. Narvaez fight and believes that Narvez fight will be a tough game for him but he likes the challenge of giving 1 lost to undefeated fighter like Narvaez.
The 36-year old Omar Andres Narvaez got 35 wins with 19 KOs, zero lost and 2 draws and currently the WBO Junior Bantamweight champion. What is at stake on this boxing event is the WBC and WBO bantamweight titles. For the venue, there’s no specific details about this yet.
This post will be updated for additional details of this Nonito Donaire vs. Omar Andres Narvaez fight on October 22, 2011.
The following shows the video feed of the official weigh-in of Nonito Donaire and Omar Narvaez at the Peyton Room of the Affinia Hotel. In this episode, 116.4lbs is the official weight of the Filipino boxer which is lower than expected. Check the video for the rest of the details of this event.
Watch the fight undercard for the Donaire-Narvaez match below.
There is no doubt, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao is the best fighter today. Even other boxers are claiming that they are undefeated and they are the real pound for pound king, Pacquiao’s might and supremacy can not be taken from the Filipino boxer. Meanwhile, I am impress with Juan Manuel Marquez fighting career and so this is the reason why I am convinced that a Pacquiao vs. Marquez rematch is a must.

If you could remember, Manny Pacquiao got a draw result from Marquez on the first clash and despite that he won on their 2nd match through anonymous decision, Marquez is not convinced with the result and even claimed that he won twice against the Filipino boxer. Is Marquez claim got a real basis? Well, on the second match, I saw that Pacman did KO Marquez on the early rounds but what I like about the latter is that he came back on the later rounds and even made a really impressive damage to the Filipino champ. The 2nd fight is a real bloody fight.
