Donaire Has October, December Fights in The Works

By Edward Chaykovsky

Accoridng to a report in The Philippine Star, WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire is planning to return on October 1 or October 15, and then plans to take a fight on the undercard of Miguel Cotto-Antonio Margarito on December 3 in New York's Madison Square Garden. Donaire recently signed a new multi-year agreement with Top rank. Donaire would like to WBA champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno in October, and a possible bump in weight to face WBO super bantamweight champion Jorge Arce in December.

“I want a unification. We’re looking at Oct. 1 or 15. I still don’t know whom I’ll fight but I’d prefer a champion. It could be a Japanese or a Panamanian or whomever. Then, I’m hoping to fight in the undercard of the Antonio Margarito-Miguel Cotto main event at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 3. In between, on Nov. 11, Rachel and I will formalize our wedding vows at a Church wedding in Alabang,” Donaire said.

“We know Arce is looking for a big money fight. I don’t know if he’ll want to fight. But I’ll take on anyone whom my manager and Top Rank put in front of me.”

good to hear, hopefully he gets moreno before the year's up and can face the winner of mares/agbeko next year.

Those two dates are too close to eachother so at least one of them is going to be a cab driver. He'll probably fight Morel or something.
