Filipino two-division world champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire on Sunday, February 20, will face Mexican champion Fernando “Cochulito” Montiel.
Dubbed “Ang Pagtutuos”, the Donaire-Montiel fight is the first world title boxing fight for 2011. It will be aired live over ABS-CBN Sports.
Donaire, a US-based native of General Santos City and The Ring Magazine number six pound-for-pound boxer, puts on the line his nine-year, 24-bout winning streak when he challenges Montiel, a three-division world champion who has been undefeated since 2006.
Montiel will defend his WBC and WBO Bantamweight belts against Donaire at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Donaire will not be the only Filipino boxer competing on Sunday as Mark Jason Melligen faces Mexican Gabriel Martinez.
