Nonito Donaire buys himself an ice cream after spectacular win
After winning over Mexican champion Fernando Montiel, newly crowned bantamweight king Nonito Donaire Jr. quickly bought himself a delicious treat: a gallon of ice cream.
Donaire said the ice cream is a self-reward for all the sacrifices and dieting he went through during hisd preparation for the Montiel fight.
“Wala na ‘yung mabigat sa shoulder ko [tulad ng] laban, ‘yung pressure at saka anticipation,” he told Bev Llorente of ABS-CBN North America Bureau.
Donaire received a $350,000 fight purse of P15.4 million for the Montiel fight.
"It was $350,000 but mostly half of that sa tax, sa managers, sa coaches. So kaunti lang ‘yun,” he said.
