One time fighter of the year and former pound for pound star, Filipino Nonito ‘The Flash’ Donaire knows Ireland’s Carl Frampton well having shared the ring with him in 2018.

A night Frampton won a unanimous points decision in Belfast.

Following the fight last night Donaire reacted to the news by saying:

Two class acts in the sport of boxing in fairness.

Frampton moves on from a great career in the ring and with his extroverted wit, sense of humor, personality and so forth, podcasts, punditry and all these kind of things seem like natural progressions.

For those that didn’t see the above in 2018, this is worth a watch:
