Donaire ready to repair relations with media

Newly-crowned World Boxing Organization (WBO) and World Boxing Council bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire now wants to settle his rift with local sports analysts and sportswriters with whom he feuded recently.

This new development came after Donaire spoke with sports analyst and former North Cotabato governor Manny Piñol in a report in 24 Oras. According to the boxer’s wife, Rachel, both camps have agreed to settle the feud and they will do so when Nonito and some members of the family return to Manila.

Piñol, along with sports columnist Recah Trinidad, his son, segment host and GMA-7 sports analyst Chino Trinidad, and sportswriters Anthony Andales and Granville Ampong were tagged by Rachel as “responsible for blowing their family feud out of proportion."

That started a word war between Donaire and several sports analysts, who traded barbs on social networking sites Twitter and Facebook.

Donaire has just ended his reported two-year feud with his father, Nonito Sr., and made this known to the public by posting his message on YouTube.

The Donaires said it was all a misunderstanding that was blown up by media, with Rachel going as far as directly addressing and giving the names of particular sportswriters.
