Donaire leads other Filipino boxers Gerry Peñalosa, Bernabe Concepcion, Mark Melligen, and Ciso Morales in the action-packed boxing event “Pinoy Power 3,” to be broadcast live from the Las Vegas Hilton, USA on ABS-CBN at 10:30am.
“The Filipino Flash” will defend his WBA superflyweight interim belt against dangerous Manuel “Chango” Vargas of Mexico, who almost beat Filipino Donnie Nietes in a fight last year.
Donaire broke out in the international boxing scene in 2007 after his devastating knockout of then flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan. Since then, it has been all wins for the US based slugger. In fact he is the second highest ranked Asian boxer in the world pound for pound list, which is ruled by boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao.
Like Pacquiao, Donaire has also appeared in Philippine TV. His first foray in television was as a guest commentator for boxing matches aired by ABS-CBN Sports, where he articulately analyzed the fights as they happened. Now, Donaire is back in ABS-CBN Sports as part of the main event of “Pinoy Power 3.”
“Pinoy Power 3” is one of many boxing events lined up to be aired on ABS-CBN through a partnership between Top Rank and ABS-CBN Sports.
