In a post fight interview Donaire told this reporter and Dyan


Castillejo who covered the fight for ABS-CBN “I feel that
nobody can beat us now because I believe in myself. I thank
God for this victory and all the Filipinos who supported me.”

Donaire said he studied Montiel’s movements in the early


stages of the second round and figured out what Montiel
would do and where he would go and that “when I caught
him he would be knocked out.”

Asked who he would like to face next the ecstatic newly

Donaire’s soft-spoken trainer Robert Garcia said he didn’t


expect the fight to end so soon because he “knew the kind
of fighter that Montiel is. I expected a tough fight but the

because he made it look easy. Now what do they have to say?
