WATCH: Nonito Donaire’s Greatest Hits

Carl Frampton claims Nonito Donaire [38(24)-4(1)] is the biggest name ever to man an away corner in Belfast.

‘The Filipino Flash’ is certainly the most decorated to come to the famous fight city.

The 35-year-old is a former world champion in four weight classes, having held flyweight, bantamweight, super bantamweight, and featherweight titles over the past decade

While he doesn’t bring a title to the SSE Odyssey Arena on April 21st, he brings notoriety and prestige and poses a big threat to ‘The Jackal’s’ World title and Windsor Park dreams.

The future Hall of Famer hasn’t reached peak form in recent years and a lot argue he is past his best.

However, the Ringstar fighter claims Frampton and a Belfast away day is exactly what he needs to inspire him to be great again – and with April 21st being a last chance saloon fr the fighter who was a world champion two years before Frampton made his debut he has every motivation to try and recapture top form.

In that regard, it is interesting to have a look at just how dangerous a peak Donaire was and show fight fans just how dangerous a fight this could be for the Belfast favourite.
