By Dennis "dSource" Guillermo

Recently elevated by the WBC as their super bantamweight champion EMERITUS, Toshiaki Nishioka (39-4-2, 24 KOs) held a press conference at the Teiken Gym in Tokyo  and announced that he wants nobody else for his eighth title defense other than WBO super bantamweight king Nonito Donaire, Jr. (28-1-0, 18 KOs).

“What is more important to me than the long layoff is fighting with an opponent I can highly motivate myself and Donaire is the only fighter on my mind,” said Nishioka, who is enjoying a layoff from boxing since fighting Rafael Marquez last October (as relayed to this scribe by Japan boxing correspondent Masatoshi Ueda of BOXING MOBILE JAPAN).

The 35-year-old southpaw also claimed that if an agreement can not be reached to fight Donaire, he may retire without fighting anyone.

"If Donaire is fighting Cristian Mijares on July, I want to be next in line for Donaire. If the negotiations goes well and reach an agreement, the fight with Donaire could happen in September," added Nishioka.

Akihiko Honda of Teiken Promotions says the negotiations with Top Rank are going well and hopes an agreement will be reached.

[QUOTE=AdamantiumPI]Rigondeaux is talented but like Donaire hasn't beaten anyone of note at 122. Nishioka should be considered the best at 122 for now. I think Rigondeaux and Donaire can beat Nishioka though.[/QUOTE] Well donaire just got to 122...Vazquez Jr was a nice win/first fight at 122...

[QUOTE=reyes066]rigondeaux is the best 122 in the world ,nobady want to fight with him ,everyone 122 are coward[/QUOTE] Nah nishioka is #1...I'd much rather see donaire fight nishioka considering it would be a bigger win for him IMO. After nishioka then I'd love to see donaire fight rigondeaux...

Donaire, pare ko - if you read this site; tell Arum PUTANG INA!!! make the Nishioka fight!! No more jeepny & tricycle drivers pare!!! They're not doing anything but padding up your resume. Nishioka is the best at 122, KO his a$$ and take his spot on top of the hill.

[QUOTE=reyes066]why not guillermo rigondeaux[/QUOTE] Cause he's unproven. Nishioka is the #1 122 lber right now.
