Nonito Donaire: I Want The Frampton vs. Santa Cruz Winner Next!

By Miguel Rivera

Former world champion Nonito Donaire (37-3, 24KOs) is getting towards the end of his training camp for the November 5th world title defense at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, when he faces mandatory challenger Jessie Magdaleno.

The 'Filipino Flash' is already very motivated to secure an even bigger fight in 2017.

Donaire wants the winner of the upcoming rematch between Carl Frampton (23-0, 14 KOs) and Leo Santa Cruz (32-1-1, 18 KOs), who battle for the WBA featherweight world title on January 28th at Las Vegas' MGM Grand.

Donaire's fight with Magdaleno takes place on a very big stage, as the co-featured bout to the Manny Pacquiao vs. Jessie Vargas pay-per-view event.

"The truth is that if I win on November 5th, the next thing I want to do is going against Leo Santa Cruz or Carl Frampton. I'm a warrior and I want the big fights. Expect me in big fights at 126 pounds. This November 5th you will see a new era, that is what Ismael Salas has given me. They will see a different Nonito, with very strong mentality, from this point moving forward," Donaire told ESPN Deportes.

"I really like the idea of ??fighting on the same card with Pacquiao it is incredible. There will be excellent fights, mine, Oscar Valdez, my focus is to win and no matter how much youth or how much speed Magdaleno - I'll win."

Donaire, who at one time was viewed as the successor to Manny Pacquiao, has captured world titles at flyweight, super flyweight, bantamweight, super bantamweight and featherweight. Donaire says all of his skills and tools have been sharpened by Ismael Salas.

"I know Ismael Salas trained Jessie Magdaleno, but really we do not focus on that. I'm at an incredible level. Ismael has brought out the best of me. I'm more focused on what I'm doing when I'm with," Donaire said.

Donaire, although not in his prime, is still a good, dangerous fighter. So a fight with either would be good. Against Leo i'd favour him to win, but not against Frampton. In that fight the style is all wrong for…

He needs to get by Magdaleno first... which isn't a given. He could conceivably beat LSC, but Frampton is an impossibility for him. He just isn't the same Donut Air of even a few years ago. But it would make…

Donaire has got his work cut out against Mag so lets see how that one plays out.
