NONITO DONAIRE RUMORS

Gennady Golovkin, Roman Gonzalez, Nonito Donaire And The Rest Of The Week’s Boxing Schedule

Gennady Golovkin is back! The mere mention of the Kazakh knockout artist’s name used to send fans in paroxysms of joy, but it seems things are a bit more subdued this time around. There’s only so many times you can get excited for GGG vs Some Guy, I guess. Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez is the support act, which sweetens the deal a little bit, though. There’s some other lower...

Weekend Afterthoughts On Nonito Donaire, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., More

When’s the last time we had any Weekend Afterthoughts around here? Maybe enough time to let neogrunge fashion become a thing.

Robert Garcia expects Nonito Donaire to return to the ring in May

Nonito Donaire last stepped foot into a boxing ring in November of last year in a back and forth rematch with iron fisted Vic Darchinyan. It was not the strongest performance of Donaire’s career, as a determined Darchinyan sought a vestige of revenge for the pairs first bout in 2009.
