WBO World Super Bantamweight Champion Nonito Donaire Jr. capped off his visit to Oracle Arena for the Filipino Heritage Night game between the Golden State Warriors and the Dallas Mavericks with a brief meeting with no less than reigning NBA Most Valuable Player (MVP) Stephen Curry.
The Warriors won the game over the Mavericks, 128 - 120, with Curry scoring 33 points.
Donaire was seated courtside wearing a personalized Warriors jersey as he witnessed the Warriors win their 65th game of the season, moving them closer to breaking the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' 72 wins in a season.
Donaire, who is a self-confessed Warriors fan, posed for photos with Curry, whom he said he last saw last year during the birthday of the MVP's younger brother and Sacramento Kings guard Seth. Curry later signed autographs on jerseys for Donaire's two sons, Jarel and Logan while Donaire gave him autographed gloves.
Donaire also posed for a photo with Dallas guard Raymond Felton.
The four-division champion (36 wins, 3 losses, 23 knockouts) is set to defend his belt against Hungarian challenger Zsolt Bedak (25 wins, 1 loss, 8 knockouts) on April 23 in Cebu City.
The Time Has Come: Donaire vs. Bedak will be available live and exclusive on SkyCable pay-per-view on April 23, Saturday. The free TV telecast will be available on ABS-CBN channel 2 and ABS-CBN Sports+Action channel 23 on April 24, Sunday.
