I had the privilege of talking to Donnie and learned that he's more than just a boxer. He has a very inspirational story behind his success. Being one of the longest reigning Filipino champions holding 2 belts, I feel that Donnie is under-promoted and deserves to be in the same ranks in the hearts of the Filipinos as Pacquiao, Donaire, and Villoria.

 In our brief talk, I didn't know that Donnie...
-        WAS MENTORED AND TRAINED BY HIS UNCLE,— Dan Nietes, who was also a World Champion
-         WAS A JANITOR-- of Mr. Aldeguier and was the only one who had the guts to go in the snake pit to feed and clean the snakes
-         HAD BIG DREAMS—and believed he could do better than other boxers, he eventually approached ALA and asked if he could try his hand on boxing
-         IS A PINOY CHAMPION WITH 2 BELTS-- With hard work and determination, he has become ONE out of the FIVE Filipino world champions (Manny Pacquiao, Nonito Donaire, Donnie Nietes, Brian Villoria, Sonny Boy Jaro)
-         IS ONE OF THE LONGEST REIGNING CHAMPIONS2nd to Gabriel “Flash” Elorde; Alongside Luisito Espinosa, Donnie Nietes, Manny Pacquiao because he was determined to follow his dreams
-         IS THE BEST PINOY BOXER NEXT TO PACQUIAO—according to Freddie Roach
-         IS A NEW FATHER-- and this gives more meaning and motivation for him to train and fight harder.
-         IS NOW A HOMEOWNER AND DRIVES A SPORTS CAR-- After years of dedication to boxing, Donnie is now a proud home owner. He built a house in Cebu on a lot given to him as a gift by Mr. Antonio L. Aldeguer. The house built by the hands of both his Father, a photographer by profession and his Uncle
-         IS A BUSINESSMAN—Donnie has put up an agrivet business and has a small piggery which he plans to expand on that after his career in boxing
-         IS AN ADVENTURER—Donnie has a passion for the outdoors and is into biking. He is a member of Bike Talk Friendship Club (BTFC) that does regular day and night rides.

Wishing the ALA Boxers the best of luck in fighting for the Filipino Pride!
