Nonito Donaire Releases Statement : Magdaleno Rejected the Rematch

                                     

Last November Jessie Magdaleno won a unanimous decision over Filipino Flash Nonito Donaire at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas to crowned as the new WBO Super bantamweight World champion.

Nonito Donaire thought he had done enough to get the win but the three judges saw the fight differently in scoring it 116-112, 116-112 and 118-110 in favor of the tough Mexican challenger Magdaleno.

Donaire released a statement regarding the status of their rematch:

I give MAJOR respect and props to those fighters who are willing to put a title freshly won right back on the line in a rematch for the greatness of boxing. Those like Santa Cruz-Frampton and Pacquiao-Marquez, Marquez-Vasquez, even Bradley-Pacquiao. could have walked away with the title and fought easier opponents but they all wanted to prove their greatness," 

"After sitting with Todd Duboef and Top Rank lawyer Harrison and asking for the rematch against Magdaleno, I received a call from them stating what Todd, Harrison, Cameron and I all knew in the prior meeting - that Magdaleno and his team would rather choose someone else than fight me again. Fighting me would give Magdaleno the biggest payday at 122, especially with us both under Top Rank banner and he says he'd beat me easier in a rematch... so why not you ask?

 "I have constantly tried to create a legacy of my own. Through wins and losses I have tried to give my fans the best fights but I have to have a willing opponent who doesn't run from the opportunity to create great fights, fights worth watching."

10 Hottest PBA Courtside Reporters

It's a good thing that these ladies weren't ranked in this video. Not only will it be too difficult, it will also be too unjust.

As the games in the PBA start heating up and the country is getting all the more hotter, these PBA courtside reporters isn't at all helping and is keeping the PBA smoldering hot. PBA and TV5 has done a great job in aqcuiring these intelligent and attractive courtside reporters.
