Nonito is bisaya. Therefore it needs a bisaya pronunciation of his name. His nick name is "Jun"..like thousands of Filipinos that go by that name.

It is pronounced "do-nay-re"... a spanish word.

According to http://dictionary.reverso.net/spanish-english/donaire

donaire...

1 (al hablar) wit
2 (al moverse) grace, elegance
3 un donaire - a witticism
dice muchos donaires - he's terribly witty

Wow! His name describes how he is as a boxer.

I'm a Fil-Am but I always pronounce it "Donighreh". What bugs me is that Nonito never bothers to correct the American commentators. Michael Buffer, the Spanish speaker wannabe, is the worst when it comes to pronouncing Donaire. WTF is "Donyehr"?

Donaire is a Spanish name and should be pronounced as such...knowing this and still insisting to pronounce it the wrong way, one would sound ignorant.

People will always pronounce words according to their own tongues. Americans will pronounce it as they read it. Filipinos do the same, so what's new? We pronounce PRESIDENT as PRE-SI-DENT when it should be PREZ-I-DENT. We pronounce IS, HAS, HIS, RAISE, NOSE, etc as we read them, when they should all be pronounced with the Z-sound, thus IZ, HAZ, HIZ, RAIZE, NOZE, etc. GREEN-WICH instead of GREENICH or GRENICH, NOR-WICH instead of NORICH, SOU-THERN instead of SUTHERN, and many more.
