"The Filipino Flash" Nonito Donaire, Jr.

by Alon Calinao Dy
(Samar, Philippines)


I remember when you started
Your professional boxing career.
You were an underdog and miscalculated
By a tough and undefeated Armenian boxer.

In a violent and brutal night,
You knocked "The Raging Bull" out
With a powerful "Flash" punch
That automatically ended the fight.

I remember how you finished "Cochulito" Montiel.
The boxing fans around the world could tell
How he'd developed an epileptic attack
After that payback.

I remember  how you bravely fought like a man
Against Omar Narvaez, Arce and Nishioka of Japan.
I remember how you easily beat them all.

After all,
You are "The Filipino Flash"  Nonito Donaire, Jr.
