Soon enough, his father brought him, together with his other siblings, to the US, but the bullying worsened because people hit him at school.

At age 11, he started training for boxing only because of his father’s encouragement, until he became a professional boxer at 18. But he then quit boxing when he discovered that his father was having an illicit affair, only to go back to it upon his mother’s request.

He reunited with his father until another serious disagreement arose between them, when his father expressed his disapproval of Nonito’s relationship with Rachel.
