TRAINER GARCIA WELCOMES RECONCILIATION BETWEEN DONAIRE, HIS DAD AND RACHEL


PhilBoxing.com




2012 “Trainer of the Year” Robert Garcia has welcomed news of the reconciliation between foure-division world champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire, his wife Rachel and Nonito’s father Nonito Donaire Sr.

Garcia told the Manila Standard “that’s awesome” in reference to Nonito and Rachel; having made up and forgotten whatever differences they had with Nonito Donaire Sr.

Garcia said “it's always a great relationship between father and son. Forget bad-mouthing each other. They had differences for a few years and I’m glad its over” even as he welcomed the assistance of Donaire Sr in his son’s training camp.

Garcia referred to his own family situation where one brother, Danny, doesn’t talk to any of them. He said “it’s a perfect example as we are together even though one brother doesn’t talk to us and my farther doesn’t understand and in fact cried in front of me.”

Garcia said he called Nonito and Rachel when he arrived in Las Vegas last Friday to watch the Floyd Maywearher-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fight and invited them over to the MGM Grand where Garcia said “we spent a couple of hours together and had a good time.”

The trainer said Mexican fans were taking pictures of Donaire and pointed out “they love Nonito because of the way he is. He’s kind to everybody and Rachel is the same way.”

Garcia said they are leaving for the press conference at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas to officially announce on Wednesday an exciting Top Rank triple header scheduled for November 9 will be headlined by the WBO junior lightweight title fight between champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez and undefeated former WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia with Donaire battling three-division champion Vic “Raging Bull” Darchinyan in a rematch that Darchinyan has pleaded for ever since Donaire scored a stunning 7th round knockout to win the IBF/IBO flyweight titles on July 7, 2007.

Donaire was being trained by his father at that time.

Nonito’s Dad told Dennis Principe of the Standard “I will be joining their team. I am really thankful this has happened. I had dinner with Jun-jun and Rachel. We talked about a lot of things but we never discussed anything about the past except that we’ve accepted to forgive and forget our mistakes.”

After Donaire successfully defended his crown against Luis Maldonado and Moruti Mthalane, father and son were involved in a publicized spat which centered around Nonito’s wife Rachel.

Donaire Sr said “I have now accepted everything knowing that they’ve been happily together for quite some time. But that moment when I held my grandson Jarel was really very special for me.”

Trainer Garcia said his younger brother Mikey trained hard today and enjoyed his first day of sparring where he went six rounds with Robert’s nephew Javier Garcia.

He said Donaire will travel to Garcia’s gym in Oxnard, California to begin serious training next week and informed us that he already has some sparring partners in mind.
