Donaire: It wasn’t MY win tonight, it was the Philippines’ win

After his KO win over Vic Darchinyan, former world champion Nonito Donaire issued the following message on his Facebook page:

It wasnt MY win tonight, it was the PHILIPPINES win. We are strong and we have faith. Thank you Lord for keeping me safe, giving me a sound mind, helping me see what needed to be done. Thank you to the Archangels and especially all the fans and Filipinos who watched despite the typhoon. I have alot of work still to do but first I need to get the cheek xrayed for fracture and rest. God Bless!

During his post fight interview, Donaire stated “When he hit me in my cheek, it felt like he broke my cheek, so part of my mind was ‘Is this it for me? Should I keep going?’ but I put my mind and heart into it and said ‘You know what? I will never, ever quit.'”

As far as future fights, Donaire stated he’s looking for a rematch with Guillermo Rigondeaux.
