Isinulat namin noong nakaraang linggo ang interbyu kay Nonito Donaire, Jr. ni Tris Dixon ng ww.boxingnewsonline.net. Sa nasabing interbyu, muling ikinuwento ng Filipino boxing champ ang misunderstanding nila ng kanyang ama at ang mga pinagdaanan niya noong bata pa siya.
Binanggit ni Nonito na mahirap lamang ang kanyang pamilya, hindi siya ang paboritong anak, at hanggang ngayon, hindi matanggap ng mga magulang niya ang kanyang misis na si Rachel.
Marami ang nakisimpatiya kay Nonito Jr. dahil sa malungkot na kuwento ng buhay niya, pero pinabulaanan ito ng kanyang sariling ina.
Nagkaroon ng pagkakataon si Anthony “Duljoman” Andales ng www,philboxing.com na makuha ang panig ng ina ni Nonito Jr. dahil kaibigan niya ang nakatatandang kapatid nito na si Glenn.
Naging ugly family feud ang kinahinatnan ng mga rebelasyon ni Nonito dahil sa pagsasalita ng kanyang ina.
Nagpapasalamat kami kina Anthony at Dong Secuya, ang may-ari ng philboxing.com dahil pumayag sila na i-reprint namin dito sa Abante ang mga bahagi ng exclusive interview nila sa nanay ni Nonito.
Nilinaw ni Anthony sa kanyang artikulo na wala siyang intensyon na palakihin ang misunderstanding ng pamilya dahil gusto lamang niya na iparating kay Nonito Jr. ang mensahe ng ina nito na nagmamalasakit.
Ito ang bahagi ng exclusive interview ni Anthony kay Mrs. Donaire aka Nanay Donaire, ang nalulungkot na ina ni Nonito:
“Enough is enough,” Nanay Donaire (Mom Donaire) says, wanting to come out of silence, not to distract her son’s training but to clarify everything and to inform in print and to let the world champion son to know that she is listening and will spank him if he keeps on lying.
The Mama said that its about time for her to speak to let her son know that she’s been listening to all the lies thrown around against his dad. And as a mother she will not tolerate the bare-faced lying by her son.
Nanay Donaire, who is a 3rd order Augustinian secular and a church choir member, told me that hearing his son not telling the truth makes her sad all the time. So after reading Tris Dixon’s story she said to herself that this needs to be stopped.
First, Nanay Donaire said that Nonito’s dad didn’t steal any money, the $240 Nonito Jr. accused his Dad of stealing from him was used to feed the boxing staffs as they went to eat. I say what is $240? Is that enough to accuse your own dad of stealing? Is that enough to cut the relationships?
Nanay Donaire was with me, she believes that a $240 is not enough to make his older Donaire look bad. She added that, did Dodong (Nonito Sr.) accuse the son of stealing money when he spent lots of money raising him? Paying his phone bills, rent and other expenses? No the dad never accused his son of anything because he loved his son.
As I spoke to Nonito Sr, he recalled also that on Moruti Mthalane fight in Mandalay Bay, he’s supposed to make $30K but after the fight Junjun and Rachel only gave him $20K. “Did I accuse him of stealing? Never, I never did.”
Donaire Jr. tried very hard to make himself look like Manny Pacquiao, like growing up very poor, almost nothing to eat, no food at the table, smallest share in the table.
Nanay Donaire said that they were poor but not very poor as his son said. Nanay told me that she was a teacher and Dodong was a soldier, there was always food at the table, maybe not grand but was always enough for everybody.
Nanay Donaire was surprised also that Nonito Jr. was jealous with Glenn. “Then my brother started boxing and, growing up, my family have always said, ‘Glenn’s good-looking. Glenn’s better than you, Glenn’s this and this. Glenn’s the best.”
“Anthony I am very sad to read this one, how can he carry this in his heart? If he thinks that he was overlooked he should have shut his mouth. His brother Glenn even supported him because he was not working, he only boxed. Glenn gave him money, or shared his money, and he didn’t care because he is his brother and they have a pact. No he can’t mention those things, we never did that to him.”
Nanay Donaire recalled when he watched Jr.’s fight in Manila. The first thing Rachel’s dad did was to gave her the “rules”. Rules that said: She can’t go near her son anytime she wants, she can’t always ask for something from the son, in other words she can’t do this and can’t do that… she can’t go in to the ring in case Junjun wins.
She told me that she threw that paper away, she only read a portion of it… Now the time comes, Junjun won, if my recollection is correct he knocked out Raul Martinez in 4, and GMA TV approached Nanay Donaire and she stood up, and Nonito’s new mommy (Rachel’s mom) reacted right away “Why did you get up? Did you read the rules?”
… Nanay Donaire being polite answered that I can’t make those GMA guys wait for me…
Still in Manila, she said that she had a room provided by her son, but that afternoon Rachel told her to just go downstairs and stay with her five other relatives (room is very small though) because her room will be given to Dr. Ed Dela Vega (Doc is more important than the mom? Hhmm)… but she knew that Doc Ed was in another room because they met at the stairs prior… she just learned that the room was given to a bodyguard commissioned by Rachel.
Recently, Nanay Donaire was invited by his son to visit him in Japan. Nanay jumped in quickly, first she missed Nonito a lot and thinking that this was maybe the chance to salvage a compromise. She told me that her main purpose was to bring peace and reconciliation.
Nanay asked her son, “Why you didn’t call us anymore?” The son said “I totally forgot about you guys, coz I’m happy with my new family.”
“You know your Dad lost his job and he has some kidney problem, maybe you can help him,” Nanay said.
The son replied: “If it is God’s will it is God’s will”
“Jun, your Dad made you a champion, he sacrificed a lot for you, he quit the job and lost his retirement,” pointed out Nanay. The son, in an arrogant manner, said “That’s his fault he lost his retirement, no mercy and no guilt towards him.”
“Jun I thought you said that we’ll help each other once you become a champion,” the mom inquired…
“That was before Mom,” the misguided son said.
