After winning the bantamweight championship of the World Boxing Super Series, Naoya Inoue lets Nonito Donaire borrow Muhammad Ali trophy in order to fulfill a promise to his sons.
In his Facebook post, Donaire said he promised his sons that he would take home the trophy if he wins his fight against Inoue for the bantamweight championship on Thursday (November 7) at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
But Inoue won by unanimous decision and is set to take home the championship.
“I humbly asked Inoue to borrow it for a night, not for me but for my word. It’ll be a life lesson my boys will soon learn,” Donaire said in his post.
“It’ll pain them to see my face. They’ll kiss my wounds. They’ll see a trophy we don’t get to take home and understand what it means to want to train harder,” he added.—AAC
