Donaire Vs Mathebula – The Flash is just too fast for the tall Mongoose
Boxers have their own alias and while the Donaire Vs Mathebula live fight is happening next week, July 7, 2012, The Filipinos Flash from my own point of view is just too fast for the opponent, Jeffrey “The Mongoose” Mathebulla. Now what does this say about the fight?
Well, watching one of the classic fights of Mathebula from where he is the crown favorite, I can say that this guy although indeed very tall for a division where Nonito Donaire is also in, I can safely say that it will be a hard fight for the South African. Also from the checked in online records of this boxer although he is currently the IBF champion, he seemed to lack what Donaire had which is apart from the hand speed, is the power to knock out opponents in the middle of the boxing ring.
On the other hand, with respect to Donaire’s qualities and strong points, I strongly believe he should explore and capitalize more on them. That he had everything to risk and nothing to loose with this fight. He is far too strong and fast than Mathebula with the latter only holding on to a strong point which is his height advantage. Let’s see who will define the moment and capture the unification belts of the IBF and WBO.
