Default Re: Pinoy BEEF! Who is better? Nonito Donaire or Brian Viloria?

Nonito has beef with Viloria because back in 2000, the U.S. Olympic Trials flyweight final was between him and Brian. Viloria won what many thought was a controversial decision. Nonito and his brother Glenn claim politics had something to do with it.

Then, when Nonito was still a contender at 115 (back when he and Glenn were managed by Jackie Kallen of "Against the Ropes" fame), Viloria was a contender at 112. Nonito called him and his management out. No response.

Then Viloria won the WBC belt at 108. Glenn, who is a natural flyweight, offered to fight him at 108. No response.

Then Nonito wins the IBF 112 after Viloria loses his belt. NOW Viloria wants to move up, as 112 is his natural weight. Nonito is gonna burn this through.
