President Noynoy Aquino is among those wishing the “Filipino Flash” good luck for his title defense against Jorge Arce.

The president said he feels an affinity with Donaire who had worn yellow boxing gear in a past fight, which Donaire dedicated to the chief executive's late mother, former President Cory Aquino.

As for Donaire's boxing career, Aquino advised him to set his goals and know when to quit.

The president's advice to Donaire came amid calls for another Filipino boxing champion, Manny Pacquiao, to retire following his shocking knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez.

It was the second straight loss for Pacquiao, an 8-division world champion, who will turn 34 years old on Monday. – ANC Top Story, Dec. 14, 2012
