Another World Title Fight Sidelined (Donaire vs. Rodriguez) 📰

🇵🇭Nonito Donaire (40-6-0, 26KO👊) has contracted covid-19 a week prior to his vacant WBC Bantamweight title shot against 🇵🇷Manny Rodriguez (19-1-0, 12KO👊). The fight has been called off instead of postponed. Manny’s replacement opponent will be unbeaten 🇵🇭Reymart Gaballo (23-0-0, 20KO👊), but the belt will no longer on the line.

Perhaps now, the belt may be relegated later for what the original match-up was supposed to be, with Nonito Donaire fighting Champion-in-Recess 🇫🇷Nordine Oubaali – of course pending Donaire’s condition after hopefully undergoing a full recovery in dealing with his recent diagnosis.
