NONITO Donaire Jr. is not only preparing against a hungry opponent, but also against the heat.

When he stakes his crown against  WBO super bantamweight crown against Zsolt Bedak of Hungary on April 23, Donaire will also have to deal with the “sauna-like” conditions in the open-air venue of the Cebu City Sports Complex.


So he arrived three weeks earlier from his home in Las Vegas and tried to train and even spar in the outside heat where the 32-year-old consensus Fighter of the Year (2012) admitted to having “vomited a little.”

“After the sparring my body reacted and was put in a survival mode, so I vomited a little,” said Donaire. “So if you’re not prepared for that conditions even though you are used to tough training it will drain you.”
