Yup, he stalled his own growth. He was very inactive after the Darchniyan KO, and he blamed Gary Shaw, but even after he left Shaw, he found someone new to blame like his father, he didn't do much after getting with Arum, and his fued with Arum was stupid. Nonito is not a draw, plus what ive read from filipino boxing fans they cant stand him and think he is arrogant.
Its embarrassing that he couldn't even sell out a small stadium in a area that has over 100 thousand Filipinos, if that was a 24 year old featherweight Pacquiao that stadium would have sold out fast.
Nonito is 30 years old, and he cant sell any tickets. I think he thinks of himself too highly, dude is gassed up. I also heard Arum pays him 1 million a fight now, that was the new contract deal that Nonito would get paid no less than a million not sure how true that is, but if it is Nonito is grossly overpaid.
