Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire credits a person close to his heart in his glorious return to being a world champion.

After beating Mexican Cesar Juarez in a Fight of the Year candidate to win the WBO super-bantamweight championship, Nonito gave a very special shutout to his wife Rachel as the one who put the team together in his latest world title run.

"Let's give it up for Rachel who put this team together," Donaire said per Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News. "We are all here because of you."

"Each one of you, you are amazing I couldn't have done it without you. I could feel all your support and that's why I had strenght," Donaire told his team after a brutal 12-round bout against Juarez.

Doinare won via unanimous decision to win the vacant WBO crown he lost to Cuban star Guillermo Rigondeaux two years ago.

After a couple of days rest in Puerto Rico, the Filipino Flash will be coming home for Christmas in the Philippines and is scheduled to do a couple of guestings on ABS-CBN on Thursday, December 17.
