Junior featherweight titleholder Nonito Donaire was dominant in all four of his 2012 fights -- all world title bouts against quality opponents -- to earn fighter of the year honors. He hopes to kick off his 2013 candidacy by beating fellow titleholder Guillermo Rigondeaux in a unification fight.
They will meet April 13 in the main event of HBO's "World Championship Boxing" at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, promoter Top Rank announced Tuesday. A news conference is scheduled for Thursday in New York City.
"There's no question that fighting at Radio City Music Hall is like a coronation for the fighter of the year, fighting on that historic stage," Top Rank chairman Bob Arum told ESPN.com.
Get your money ready, this is going to be a great fight. Nonito will show the world why he is P4P the #1 Boxer in the world.
