Donaire Wins Decision, Loses Crowd

Photo: Ed MulhollandNonito Donaire has the quickest feet in boxing. He also has some of the quickest hands in boxing. He has superb balance, he can punch from every angle, and he shows occasional flashes of Roy Jones-esque transcendence of style, dancing in and out of a realm that only the most talented boxers in the world can ever hope to experience. But he’s not a complete fighter. And though he easily earned a unanimous decision over previously undefeated Argentinian Omar Narvaez (35-1) tonight-- winning every round--his performance will surely go down as a disappointment.
