IBR on Hannibal Boxing

inoue-donaire-Naoki-Fukuda-2

“There was a time when Donaire, 40-6 (26), fighting a division or two above his best weight, earned less charity. His fights were a dying man’s EKG, lulls of nothing broken up by blips of excitement. Somehow an absurd athlete with knockout power in both hands became tedious. Age, defeat, the accompanying adjustment of expectations, and a handful of earnest fights made Donaire someone to appreciate again.”
