By Ronnie Nathanielsz

After weeks of uncertainty and quibbling over television rights Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says the rematch between WBA super flyweight interim champion Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire and reigning WBC/WBA champion Vic Darchinyan “is done.”

Arum told BoxingScene.com that “the Donaires are coming in to finalize everything tomorrow (in Las Vegas).” Arum said that if Donaire wins over Darchinyan then “I will put him in with (Fernando) Montiel” who recently scored a stunning 4th round TKO over Japan’s bantamweight champion Hozumi Hasegawa.

Montiel himself said that after a rest he wanted to fight Donaire and Darchinyan which pleased the flashy Filipino who wants to move up in weight and has been aching to face Montiel.

Arum also indicated that Donaire could have a tune-up fight “if he wanted one” but said Donaire “doesn’t want it.”

Donaire told BoxingScene.com, insidesports.ph, Standard Today and Viva Sports the other day that Darchinyan had claimed he (Donaire)  was scared of him and pointed out that the best way to settle the issue would be to get it on,  so he could repeat what he did to Darchinyan when he knocked him out in the 5th round of their IBF/IBO flyweight title on July 7, 2007 with the stoppage being named the “Knockout of the Year.”

Donaire added from a personal standpoint “I want to shut his mouth and when I beat him it ends it all. I want to prove to the people that I knocked him out and that’s what I’m going to try to do again.”

Donaire also said that he had begun training for the August21 rematch even as Arum told us the fight will not take place at the Home Depot in California as earlier planned said  “people here in Nevada want us to do the fight in Las Vegas.”

Donaire said “I have been sparring with southpaws and trying to focus on left-handers.” Among the southpaws Donaire has been sparring with is Dodie Boy Penalosa Jr , the outstanding Filipino amateur champion who recently turned pro and signed up with Dunkin and Donaire. Penalosa Jr is the son of former two division world champion Dodie Boy Penalosa who is also a member of Donaire’s training staff which includes brother Jonathan Penalosa.

Donaire said he is “training hard so that I don’t have to worry about the weight” since he has had problems staying within the 115 pound limit and wants to move up to the bantamweight limit of 118.

He emphasized over and over again “I want to make a statement out there that let’s make this fight happen. I want Darchinyan and I know that Darchinyan wants to fight me. So lets stop all the BS and lets make the fight happen.”

[QUOTE=elytwo10]They have both fought bums for quite some time know so I see it as a toss up ...[/QUOTE] Vic has fought a record of combined 234-41-10 while Nonito has fought a combined 121-10-3. Both have had decent competition, but Vic has clearly been more active.
