Nonito Donaire Jr. Following Manny Pacquiao’s Road Less Travelled

Nonito Donaire Jr. Following Manny Pacquiao’s Road Less Travelled

When an employee leaves a company, regardless if it’s voluntary or termination, there should be a proper and professional exit interview to avoid legal difficulties in the near future.

The recent Nonito Donaire Jr. signing with GBP or Golden Boy Promotions could further give a lot of complications more than a positive direction to his career. I am no lawyer but to put it in layman’s term it’s simple as dating a new girlfriend without informing your old one that you’re breaking up with her. In other words, it’s as simple as T-R-O-U-B-L-E.

Nonito deserves all the exciting fights on his career now. At 28 years old he is in his prime, and he deserves nothing but the best with all his God given gifts. He is donned as the next Manny Pacquiao. And GBP could give him all the marquee fights on his current division, and he could cash in as much money as he wants which he direly deserves. Boxing is still business and whoever gives the best matchup and the biggest payday then that’s the best promotion company to sign. However, like any business there should be proper and legal ways to do it. In quitting your job you still have to go for your clearance before getting your last pay right?

Manny Pacquiao made that mistake once, when he signed up with GBP, even if his contract is still with Top Rank. It was a road less travelled but Nonito travelled that road anyway.

It wouldn’t have been a problem if he talked it out with Bob Arum. He could have stated his reasons that he needed those matchups that Top rank couldn’t give. He could have asked Arum about the legality of his contract before signing with GBP. In that way, everything will be on the right foot when he announces his departure. I couldn’t blame Nonito with his decision because if you look at the big picture, we would see great and exciting matchups in pay per view. He could fight Israel Vasquez or Rafael Marquez. However, he could have done it the right way.

With the situation what will likely happen, is that Nonito will be in for a long vacation. Even if GBP can get him all the fight he wants. Bob Arum can prevent that from happening if he asks for a court injunction when everything is still not legally settled. The simple girlfriend math is 1+1=0.

At the end of the day we still want everything to be ironed out. Nonito Donaire Jr. is such an exciting fighter that we all want to see him fight those big names.

Well, I guess it’s not too late to get an exit interview right?
