MANILA, Philippines – Boxing champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire Jr. is currently in the Philippines for the final arrangements of his church wedding with wife Rachel.

Donaire, who is coming off a successful title defense against Omar Narvaez of Argentina, plans to wed Rachel on November 11.

“In a couple of weeks,” he said in an interview on dzMM. “I’ll get married with my beautiful wife in church for the lolas and the lolos, titas and titos.”

Donaire said he wants to follow the Filipino tradition of getting married in church.

“So that’s what we want to do, to get married in front of God,” he said.

The WBC and WBC bantamweight king also made an appearance in ABS-CBN talent reality show “Showtime.”

Taking the seat of “Unevictable Hurado” Vice Ganda who called in sick, Donaire was Showtime’s guest Hurado for the day.
