Donaire wins vs Narvaez

Philippine boxer Nonito Donaire Jr. retained his WBO and WBM Bantamweight title after defeating Agertina’s Omar Narvaez by a unanimous decision in New York.

The judges scored 120 for Donaire as against 108 for Narvaez in the 12-round match at the Madisons Square Garden Saturday night (Sunday in Manila).

Malacanang congratulated Donaire for his win.

“Congratulations to the Filipino Flash…We’re all very proud of you,” said deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte.

Valte said Donaire’s win showed that “it’s not only the (people’s champ) Cong. Manny Pacquiao who does us proud when it comes to the boxing arena.”

She said the country has many good boxers and underscored the need for the country to continue to support them.
