Nonito and Mikey Helping in Mexico


PhilBoxing.com




Away from the flashing cameras, boxers Nonito Donaire and Mikey Garcia are in Mexico helping with donations to people in need.

The two popular former world champions have been promoting their coming clashes to take place in the same November 9 Top Rank card in Corpus Christi, Texas, and today they are in Mexico with their award-winning trainer Roberto Garcia of Oxnard, Calif.

Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20 KOs) faces Armenian brawler Vic Darchinyan in a much-awaited rematch in the featherweight division, while his friend Mikey Garcia (32-0, 27 KO's) challenges Puerto Rican world champ Rocky Martinez (27-1-2, 16 KO's) for the WBO Jr. Lightweight World Title.

The above image from social media Boxeo Azteca shows the two talented boxers handling boxes of goodies brought from a super market cart into a van for distribution to the needed ones.

The silent, yet meaningful gesture, is being so well-received by fans around the country; now very positively commented in social media in Mexico:

Miguel Navarro: Nonito ever so humble! great idol.

Monse De Gonzalez: not everyone does what they do.

Jose Luis Medina Espinoza: These are real champions

Javi Lopez: this is the meaning of being great ... anyone can be number one, but if you're not humble like the are, then it means nothing. I take off my hat. Two great kids

Hermes Suárez: Will they take some bandages and arnica ointment to Canelo Alvarez, too, lol. Very good for Nonito and Mikey, a wonderful example!

JR Benito Silva Silva: This is why they are the best

Manuel Lorenzo: That's why nonito and mike are idols coz of their humility. I had the pleasure of meeting mikey. he is very humble indeed. Such a nice boy. May good luck accompany them and the best men to win.

Pablo Dominguez: God multiply this blessing. Their work is really good good

White Angel: Since the Mexican government do nothing these kids decided to help.

Erick Torres: These are macho men, not clowns

Christopher Sandoval: I didn't know they are here in Mexico. Welcome.

Didier Lopez Tejero: Vientos muchachos, ustedes si se la parten ...en el buen sentido de ayudar a Mexico... Gracias. Winds blow kids, you really work hard... in a good way you helping Mexico... Thank you.

Velazquez Jhovany: That is if being a good person and a real human being
