NONITO Donaire Jr. and veteran boxing promoter Bob Arum are back in each other’s arms after the reigning unified bantamweight titlist, on Monday, agreed to sign a new four-year deal with Top Rank, Inc.
Cameron Dunkin, Donaire’s manager referred to the new deal as ‘very healthy.’
“Nonito’s going to be around with Top Rank for a while,” said Dunkin first reported by The Ring, the so-called ‘Bible of Boxing.’
Cracks within Donaire and Arum’s relationship began to show in March after the Filipino fighter decided to sign with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions, Top Rank’s rival promotional outfit.
Donaire, the reigning World Boxing Council (WBC) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) bantamweight champion, said his old contract with TOp Rank was over after his second-round knockout win over Mexican Fernando Montiel in their bantamweight unification bout at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
