Nonito Donaire: I Would Love To Fight Moreno Next

BoxingScene.com caught up with newly crowned WBC/WBO bantamweight champion Nonito "Filipino Flash" Donaire at Brandon Rios' media workout. Both fighters are trained by Robert Garcia and promoted by Top Rank.

Donaire told BoxingScene that he is feeling good and hopes to return to the ring soon. "I want to get back in the ring as soon as possible. I have heard my next fight could be in May or June or July. I just want to get back in as soon as I can."

BoxingScene recently ran a story in which Donaire's trainer, Robert Garcia, said that WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno is being explored as Donaire's potential next opponent, with a May date in San Francisco being a possibility. 

Donaire said that he wants to unify titles at bantamweight and that he has no problems with facing the Panamanian.  "I will fight whoever they want to put in front of me. I would love to fight Moreno next."

If Abner Mares wins Showtime's bantamweight tournament, a showdown between Mares and Donaire seems unlikely.

Donaire is promoted by Top Rank and Mares is promoted by Golden Boy. The two companies haven't staged a co-promotion since Manny Pacquiao-Ricky Hatton in 2009, which makes a Donaire-Moreno unification bout much more likely. 

Donaire revealed that if everything goes as planned he will get three fights in this year.

Its a great idea that Donaire should fight the other Champ in Bantam weight Division to unify the Title! Other Champs should do the same.
