Nishioka Says Donaire Clash is The Only Fight He Wants

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.

Eh... Nishioka doesn't plan on having a tune up fight first? And he plans on coming to the states cause we all know Arum ain't going to Japan. "Super bantamweight king Donaire" How is that?
