This was the first Olympic medal of the Dominican Republic. A year earlier he won a silver at the 1983 Pan American Games. He was born in La Romana, Dominican Republic.
Nolasco turned pro in 1986 and had limited success, possibly a result of having moved up the professional ladder too quickly. In 1987 he dropped a pair of fights to future champion Tony Lopez. Later in the year he lost a by first round knockout to former world champ Victor Callejas. In 1989 he took on Maurizio Stecca for the newly created WBO Featherweight Title, but lost in a 6th-round TKO.
Nolasco was shot and killed in an attempted robbery at his home in La Romana on September 15, 1995 at the age of 33.
