Donaire vs Moreno is Being Discussed For May

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised by trainer Robert Garcia, that a May unifiication is being discussed for newly crowned WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire (26-1, 18KOs). The "Filipino Flash" captured the titles last Saturday in Las Vegas with a brutal two round knockout of Fernando Montiel.

Top Rank is exploring a possible fight between Donaire and WBA champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (30-1, 10KOs) for the month of May in San Francisco, California. Moreno is poised to defend his title against Lorenzo Parra on April 30 in Panama, and that fight would obviously be ruled out if a Donaire-Moreno deal moves forward.

"They are talking about Moreno in May, in San Francisco. We want the unification fights. Moreno is a good fighter.  I haven't seen any tapes of him, but I'll get them. I have a guy who who can get me footage of him," Garcia said to BoxingScene.com.

montiel is by far the better figther than moreno ...i think with morenos style, he really can make this a boring fight and make donirae look bad but i think he's way to slow and nonito would strong, too fast,…

[QUOTE=Espada;10158167]Malignaggi punches harder than Moreno[/QUOTE] Well, he's a welter, there is a huge difference between a ww and a bw. P4P there wouldn't be much difference, but Moreno has the sweetest skills. If Moreno has enough pop/movement to stop Nonito…

I won't be surprised if this don't come off but if it does I'll put serious points on Moreno and people need to STFU about Donaire being too big, Montiel weighed significantly more, get over it.
