Nonito’s Transformation: Flashes to Make Him Superman

By Reni M. Valenzuela
PhilBoxing.com
26 Feb 2011



Beyond figures of speech, Nonito Donaire's spectacular performance demolishing Fernando Montiel in round two was a triumph of faith by the "Filipino Flash" and for the Filipino people, exhibiting without any shadow of a doubt that Nonito rose to the occasion and brought the battle into the air, rising above himself.

It was a delight to see him transformed back to virtues where greatness isn't always known and judged by the inclinations of the "self" and by what fascinates the mundane superficial world but on the basis one's capacity to fly.

Indeed outside of boxing star Donaire’s exceptional skills and power inside the ring last Sunday, there proves that Sovereign lives.

Had he relied solely on his abilities and self confidence "believing" for an early knockout win just as he repeatedly predicted since last November, Donaire's conquest of Montiel to seize the championship belts would have not been that exhilarating for him. 

So unspeakable was the joy in Donaire's face as he jumped, ran, shouted and cried the minute he knew Fernando Montiel would not be able to continue fighting after his single vicious punch to the head in the second round, as if he didn't have what it takes to achieve the "miracle."

And that's the marvel of it when one starts to have the right focus to believe and as a result experience crossing parted Red Seas or walking on water: Heaven is thanked and God gets the glory.


The world has seen Donaire looked up in deep thoughts of gratitude to his Lord through a TV camera and then bowed down in prayer/reverence while the "shocked" and spirited crowd in the Mandalay Bay Center was all in awe and admiration of the man sharing the jubilation with him.

Nonito Donaire transported the “warfare” into the air and so he was not alone winning the bout.

Agence France and Associated Press reported Donaire as acknowledging the Power behind his power during an interview immediately after the fight: "I just came out there believing in this talent God has given me. I thank God for this victory (and all the Filipinos who supported me)."

There goes another story of faith and triumph that may probably qualify to be in the list of Hebrews eleven.

We now have in world boxing two Manny Pacquiaos at one and the same time. Back to back honor for the nation. And they are both Filipinos.

Humbled to be one!
