Nonito Donaire Focused: Eager To Knock Narvaez Out

Nonito Donaire doesn't lack for confidence. Donaire was pretty convincing when he discussed his opponent, Omar Narvaez on Saturday night, and the advantages he believes he has over him.

I have the height advantage, the speed advantage, and the power advantage, Donaire said during a public workout for the media at the Kingsway Boxing Gym in Manhattan.

But sometimes it only takes one skill to defeat another. With me, I believe that timing can defeat speed. I believe that power can be nullified by speed. So it just goes around in the circle so I just try to get my talent and prepare my talent in the balance of talent, speed and stamina. So I dont have to worry about anything. Whatever he gives to me, Im ready for it.

Then, as if to reinforce the idea that hes going to handle his business at the Garden, he dropped this pearl:

Hes facing someone in a different world right now, Donaire said. If we can end it as early as the first round or as late as the 12th around- were always ready for anything.
Its important to him to not just win the fight but to look good in getting the win to be able to increase his fan base, he said.

We want to look spectacular, Donaire said. When I started to be where Im at, its because I accepted that boxing is a sport. But its also a form of entertainment. You want to entertain the people and thats one thing that I have in my head- that I have to look spectacular.

As for how hes preparing to fight the undefeated Narvaez, the affable Donaire has a few ideas.

I didnt really watch his tape, Donaire said. But one thing that I think I can take advantage of is the way he stands [which is squared up]. I think I can take a lot of advantages of the way he stands, but then again, its really tricky. The guys been fighting forever. They guy is 36-years old and hes still undefeated. Hes a legend in Argentina. Hes defended his title I think more than 12 times? So you know what kind of veteran this guy is inside the ring and thats one thing we dont want to overlook because hes shorter than I am. We dont want to look past his ability to change the weather.

I can't wait to see how this one goes. Narvaez does have what it takes to make this somewhat competitive for as long as it lasts, but he'll probably get KO'ed by the 8th round.

this fight will be pathetically one-sided. . . donaire is just WAAYY too fast and strong for anybody at bantanweight, save agbeko or mares, but even them i think he easily outpoints. . . he will without a doubt KO narvaez if he actually tries.
