During Paulie Malignaggi's ten round decision over Jose Miguel Cotto, I eyed a familiar individual covering the action. Camera in tow, as he is an avid fan of film himself, Nonito Donaire Jr. could be found ringside as Malignaggi maneuvered his way to his second victory as a welterweight contender.

Donaire of course made headlines last month by attempting to break free of his promotional ties to Top Rank in signing an exclusive deal with Oscar De La Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions. The matter was taken to court and judge Daniel Weinstein ruled that Top Rank's contract was still binding and that Golden Boy was prohibitied from promoting him for the near future.

It's definitely a touchy subject and you would hate to see a guy like Donaire become inactive over this but he obviously isn't looking to distance himself from Golden Boy, who is staging the 'Action Heroes' event tonight inside of the MGM Grand, headlined by Marcos Maidana facing off with Erik Morales. It's been said that Donaire is looking to appeal Weinstein's ruling, as Golden Boy has been adamant about their belief in Donaire.

Donaire refused to comment on the issue and is obviously going to be laying low for a while. If anything it was great to see the bantamweight champion smiling and around the sport he loves best.
