Nonito Donaire Gets a New Mouthguard for the Darchinyan Fight


PhilBoxing.com




Donaire (R) with Dr. de la Vega.

Nonito Donaire, the “Filipino Flash” from San Leandro, California has a big job ahead on July 7 to accomplish what his younger brother Glenn failed to do last October at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Thus, in preparation for that momentous occasion, he came to our offices today with his Dad and younger brother Glenn to get fitted with our signature brand mouthguard called “MouthGuards For Champions.”

Donaire’s new mouth guard is made with a reinforced three-layered ethyl-vinyl acetate material called Drufosoft, a product from Germany. It was pressure-laminated on a dental model fabricated from an impression of his dentition.The new mouth guard is in red-white-blue color.

With exception of Manny Pacquiao for whom we made a quad color mouthguard (red-white-blue-yellow to mimic the color of the Philippine flag) all Pinoy boxers fighting for titles who come to us for mouth guards are given the tri-color for good luck.

Donaire is scheduled to challenge the Armenian/Australian “Raging Bull”, Vic Darchinyan for the IBF/IBO flyweight championship at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

Darchinyan is best remembered as the exceedingly cocky flyweight who backs up his swank with his powerful left hand.

The Armenian turned Aussie KO’d Diosdado Gabi in round 8 and beat Glenn Donaire via a technical decision. Glenn give up on the 6th round of a scheduled 12 round fight due to a broken jaw. On his last fight held at the Home Depot Center in California last March, Darchinyan TKO’d Victor Burgos in round 12 and sent him to a hospital with a brain concussion.

Doniare, who sports a record of 17-2-1 (10KO) record is unfazed in spite of what Darchinyan (28-0-0, 21K0) has accomplished so far. “Styles make fights,” he said. “For all we know, Darchinyan may not solve my style and I may end being the champ. Darchinyan is not perfect. Someday he will lose and who knows that may come on July 7th,” he added.

Donaire last fought on May 12th at Reno Events Center at Reno, Nevada. He defeated Kevin Hudgins of Pensacola, Florida via a devastating first round technical knock-out electrifying everyone in the venue including the agent of his opponent, Dante Ortiz. Ortiz worked the corner of Hudgins as a “cut man” but his services were not needed as Nonito Donaire TKO’d his ward just before round 1 ended.

Pundits promote this fight based on the “revenge factor”, that is- “he beat my brother so I have to beat him”. But to Nonito, it’s not about revenge. It is about showing boxing fans that no one reigns supreme forever. And, he is out to prove that by beating Darchinyan on July 7th.
