Donaire vs. Guerrero is Off, Manuel Vargas a Late Sub

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has confirmed with Top Rank that Nonito Donaire's opponent for Saturday night's Pinoy Power 3/Latin Fury pay-per-view, Gerson Guerrero, failed his eye exam and therefore he is out of the fight. Guerrero's eye exam showed a detached retina. 

Donaire is scheduled to headline the show at the Las Vegas Hilton in Las Vegas, Nevada. Donaire's manager Cameron Dunkin informed BoxingScene that Manuel Vargas has accepted the fight. The Nevada State Athletic Commission has approved Vargas as a late replacement to fight Donaire. Vargas jumps around in weight, and competes at both flyweight and minimumweight. He dropped a split decision to Donnie Nietes last September.

[QUOTE=Chev Chelois;7475608]Im starting to get disappointed at Donaire. If he wants tough competion its either leave the division or leave top rank. He is getting stacked up with bum fights. He should slap Arum to force him to fight elites[/QUOTE]…

THIS IS SOME BS FIGHT...this guy lost to Donny Nietes who in my opinion is less skilled than Donaire. They should just make Darchiniyan get the rematch, he always stated that he is ready to fight Donaire anytime...:boxing:

This should be declared a non-title fight. No way a minimum-weight fighter should move up three weight divisions and be declared an OK opponent for a title fight. Just effing stupid.
