According to Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (26-1, 18 KOs) is likely going to defend his titles against undefeated WBO super flyweight champion Omar Narvaez (35-0-2, 19 KOs) - in New York City. The HBO televised fight is going to take place on October 22nd.

Top Rank had originally planned to stage the card in Carson, California at the Home Depot Center, but a conflict with an already scheduled Golden Boy event was the reason for moving Donaire's fight. Golden Boy complained to AEG, the company behind the venue, that Donaire's fight was too close to their pay-per-view featuring Bernard Hopkins vs. Chad Dawson, which takes place on October 15th at Staples Center.

"Looks like he’s going to October 22nd, Madison Square Garden, New York, yeah the big time. Against Narvaez, the undefeated Argentine," said Arum to ABS-CBS News.

The fight is not going to take place in MSG's main arena, but likely the smaller WaMu Theater.

[QUOTE=edgarg]I see that he says he's moving up right after this next fight, so he must be doing a lot of starving to keep his present weight as he's a big guy. I think he might have at least one fight against a good but not great opponent at the higher weight before tackling a champion. But who...

[QUOTE=edgarg]He'll prepare for the heavier divisions the usual way, which is with sparring partners. When he moves up is not yet determined, and it's only sometimes that a suitable, not too dangerous opponent in the heavier division is available at the right time. My opinion.[/QUOTE] I see t...

[QUOTE=uglypug]you're probably right, but if he did sign a new contract extension i don't know why he would do so with another year and a half remaining on his current contract. last i heard the judge ruled in favor of top rank after he signed with golden boy - donaire thought his contract had r...
