Arum: If Donaire Beats Montiel, Vazquez Jr. is Next

By Lem Satterfield

Last Saturday in Puerto Rico, WBA interim super flyweight champion Nonito Donaire made his final appearance at 115-pounds, when he knocked out challenger Hernan "Tyson" Marquez in eight rounds. Donaire is now moving up to bantamweight and his promoter, Top Rank CEO Bob Arum, wants to match him in some very big fights.

The first fight on the table if a title fight against WBO/WBC bantamweight champion Fernando Montiel in November on Showtime. If Donaire can get past Montiel, Arum would like to put him up against WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. Donaire has indicated his desire to move quickly throught the weight divisions while taking big title fights along way.

"We're hoping and we believe that, thanks to Showtime, Nonito's next fight will be for the bantamweight title against the legendary champion Montiel, and we'll be putting that together in the next couple of weeks," said Arum.

"You could see his great skills that he has, and what a tremendous boxer and fighter that he is. Hopefully, if he gets beyond Montiel, then his next goal is to fight Vazquez, the Puerto Rican 122-pound champion. And so, there's a lot of big fights for him in the months and the years ahead."

"Nonito has one weakness, and that's that he likes to eat. He's been starving himself fighting at 115. So at least he'll be able to eat a little bit more while he gets ready for his fights."

[QUOTE=Alibata;8814173]I am 99.99999% sure Donaire will beat Montiel. Montiel is good but Donaire is better. Donaire boxes better than Z and according to most writers and people who watched the fight Z beat Montiel.[/QUOTE] Z got complacent in that fight…
