Vazquez Jr. trained five hard months vs Nonito Donaire Jr.

Wilfredo “Papito” Vazquez Jr. trained five hard months for his upcoming world title fight against Filipino-American Nonito Donaire Jr.

The Puerto Rican revealed his training camp was very serious. It included daily intense workouts on the ring, in the gym, and repeated study of Doanire’s video of past fights. Papito was animated as he showed off his condition on Thursday at the Jessie James Leija Gym in San Antonio. The former world champion was bold to declare he will be the definite victor against Donaire this weekend. “I’m gonna knock him out,” says Vazquez in Spanish. Vazquez was proud to display his muscle tone saying he will overcome Donaire with his strength. Motivating Vazquez for the fight is his father Wilfredo Sr., who won a world title in Texas 17 yrs ago. The elder Vazquez monitored the training of his son very closely and is also very definite about the win. Vazquez Jr. thanked Latino fans for their support, promising he will bring them the victory. Donaire, who followed Vazquez’s training on the ring, impressed fans with his huge left and right bombs, lighting speed and 8 to 10 punch combinations, tiring out his mitts partner former Pinoy world champion Morris East. Donaire was super cool while reacting to Vazquez knockout prediction. “Good. I’m glad. It’s not gonna be a boring fight,” he said. Donaire said he will use his ring intelligence power and speed to beat the respected Puerto Rican fighter. “I’m really skinny. Maliit ako sa timbang na ito, mabibigat ‘yung suntok n’ya pero sa akin, mas malakas akong sumuntok,” he said. Donaire and Vazquez are equally determined to win the WBO super bantamweight belt. With the aggressive styles of both fighters fans are sure to enjoy some fireworks on the ring sat night in the US, Sunday morning in the Philippines. ABS-CBN will air the Donaire vs. Vazquez bout on Channel 2 this Sunday at 10:15 a.m.
