The blessings just keep on coming for Nonito ‘The Filipino Flash’ Donaire Jr. A day after his historic and sensational victory over the never before stopped Mexican Fernando Montiel, Donaire hosted a house blessing/ house warming gathering for family and close friends at their new condo unit at the Turnberry Place near the Las Vegas strip. It is the first residencial property for Nonito and Rachel, and tells the story of how savvy the couple is in terms of managing their coin. The condo unit was completely paid off even before the Montiel fight.

Donaire was obviously overwhelmed with emotions when I congratulated him both for his victory and his new pad. “I feel great. I haven’t slept at all (maybe like 10 minutes). I feel great. It feels like I’m still dreaming.” Another thing that was evident was how Donaire looked as if he had not been in a world title fight just hours prior. I asked him to show sign or indication that he fought the night before, and all he could show me was his bruised left fist.
Donaire has been through a lot throughout his career, but one thing he has never done is lose faith in God and himself. One can’t help but feel happy for a guy who was at the receiving end of a lot of harsh criticisms, and yet still stayed the course and chase down his lifelong dream. As for myself, one of the most relieving things that Flash’s win last Saturday did, is that now I can stop talking and writing about how good he is as much as I used to. Finally everybody gets it. Some people told me that I should write an article saying “I told you so,” to all the haters and doubters, and my response is, “what for?” I respect everyone’s opinions as long as they are backed with intelligent reasoning. As far as those who just love to slang dirt, rumors and controversy, well they’re not true boxing fans or even boxing writers. Why should we waste our time with them? Besides, Flash’s performance spoke clear enough.
