Despite her condition, Rachel did not hesitate to jump into the pool to save her friend's son who disappeared underneath the water. She injured herself in the process.

"Rachel woke up with sharp pain and was admitted in the hospital where she was monitored for over an hour and was diagnosed with a strained ligament," a post on Nonito's Facebook page reads.

According to her physicians, the baby has not been affected. They also ordered Rachel to stay in bed rest for the next two days.

Rachel and Nonito, who tied the knot in 2008, are expecting a baby boy, their first child. Rachel is reportedly due in 17 days.

Nonito Donaire Named '2012 Boxer Of The Year' By ESPN

Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire, Jr. has been named "2012 Boxer of the Year" by ESPN.

"Nonito Donaire won four fights against strong competition in 2012 -- sometimes in spectacular fashion -- and did so while proving himself clean in a sport rife with PED issues," ESPN wrote. "For that, he earns ESPN.com's boxer of the year award."

Donaire started his winning streak this year with a split decision win against Puerto Rican Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. in their WBO Super Bantamweight fight in February, becoming a 4-division title holder.

In July, the Filipino Flash won via unanimous decision against the then-reigning IBF Super Bantamweight champ Jeffery Mathebula of South Africa.

Donaire retained his WBO Super Bantamweight title after defeating Japanese boxer Toshiaki Nishioka in October. After being knocked down twice, Nishioka's corner personnel entered the ring as a request for the referee to end the fight in the ninth round.

Capping Donaire's glorious year, the 30-year-old Bohol native beat his Mexican foe, Jorge Arce, via a third round knockout in another WBO Super Bantamweight fight in December. Donaire floored Arce once in the second round, and once in the third round, before the knockout that ended the match.

The "ESPN Boxer of the Year" was awarded last year to American Andre Ward. Pound-for-pound king Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao was the recipient of the award in 2006, 2008 and 2009.

Nonito Donaire, Jr. Defeats Jeffrey Mathebula, Unifies Titles
Nonito Donaire, Jr. vs Jeffrey Mathebula Results
Nonito Donaire, Jr. has won via unanimous decision over Jeffrey Mathebula, unifying the WBO and IBF super bantamweight titles.

"The Filipino Flashed" knocked down his South African foe with a vicious left hook in the fourth round of the IBF match held Saturday night (Sunday morning in Manila) at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. It was the first time in his career that Mathebula has been down.

"He (Mathebula) didn’t expect it (knockdown). After that he kept his hands up," Donaire said.

However, Mathebula used his 4½-inch height advantage and a tremendous work rate to keep the bout competitive.

"It was tough. He got me off the jab really well," Donaire said. "That jab really took me out of my power range. He's a great champion. He wouldn't let me get in there and let me work."

In the 11th round, a hard right hand from Donaire appeared to hurt Mathebula. It was later disclosed that he had a cracked tooth, which caused him to bleed from the mouth over the last two rounds.

The Judges scored the bout 117-110, 118-109 and 119-108 in favor of Donaire, who racked up his 28th straight win.

With his latest victory, the four-division champion Donaire has improved his record to 29-1 with 18 knockouts while Mathebula is now 26-4-2 with 14 KOs.

Nonito Donaire, Jr., Chino Trinidad feud heats up online!
Boxing champ Nonito Donaire Jr. and sportscaster Chino Trinidad are currently involved in a very serious "Online war". Comparing this to the celebrity feuds happened in the microblogging site Twitter we witnessed in the past, I would have to say that I have never heard an argument this intense.

After a rift which lasted for 3 years, The Filipino Flash finally reconciled with his father, Nonito, Sr. However another feud sparked when Chino Trinidad fought back via Twitter after he and his father were especially named by Nonito and his family to be the reason of the misunderstanding inside the Donaire family.

On a video posted on the the official website of Nonito Donaire, Jr., his wife, Rachel, said,

“There are certain people in the media who have gotten fame from tearing our family apart and I think that collectively today, after seeing everything that has been out in the media and talking about what has really hurt us, the source is all the same—it’s all the media.

“So, to those people that thought that they gonna ruin the family and watch us destroy and burn ourselves. To Chino Trinidad, Recah Trinidad, to Anthony Andales, and to Granville Ampong, you’re not gonna destroy the Donaire family. And you better go find another tsismis to go, actually, bring any more hits to your site. Because what you did was unprofessional, it’s digusting, and it’s unlike a Filipino.”


Through Facebook, Nonito, Jr also released his statement on the matter, again naming the Trinidads and other sportswriters,

“Chino, Pinol, n Ampong. Shut up n Leave my family alone: the Donaires n Marcials, esp my wife. Keep talking n ull feel what Montiel felt. U won’t see it, ull just feel it. Sonic Boom!!”

“Oh n btw, Chino, Ampong, n Pinol- Why dont u cm pick a fight with sm1 ur on size huh? ME AND PAPANG also said it was the media. We ALL pointed at U! So back off.”


The statements made Chino Trinidad to fire back and air his side. Via Twitter he said,

“Funny how Mr. And Mrs. Donaire are so afraid of the ghost they created. If they aint stupid enough, maybe they would know that I don’t even have a byline. Maybe they can blame Facebook and Twitter. ”

“Nonito Jr. I am not gonna fight you atop the ring but one thing I know, I will never runaway from a good fight.”

“Nonito Jr, you better ask your a coward of a father in law who used your mother in laws FB account in maligning my character for merely posting a story on your celebrated feud then your tigas t_t_ (read in street lingo as duwag) biyenan after seeing the reaction of my FB friends removed me from his wife’s FB friends but not before the whole whole world saw who the real Gerry Marcial is.

“Kung matapang ka talaga Nonito Jr., alam mo kung saan mo ako makikita. Hihintayin kita. Gaguhin mo na ang lahat- huwag lang ang pangalan namin Hindi ako natatakot sa isang hikain at iyakin. Madami na akong nakita na kagaya mo in this lifetime…”

This is not at all good. I hope they'll talk soon and figure things out. :(
