Egis Klimas, manager and trainer of International Boxing Federation featherweight champion Evgeny Gradovich (17-0, 8KOs), says his boxer is certainly up for a future bout with Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20KOs).
In a recent international interview, Donaire's manager Cameron Dunkin said he hoped to reach an agreement for his boxer to face Gradovich in early 2014.
The two fighters have other fights to worry about first. Gradovich has a contracted rematch with Billy Dib that has to be worked out, and Donaire faces Vic Darchinyan in a rematch on November 9.
Both fighters are trained by Robert Garcia, who recently told BoxingScene.com that he doesn't know what he would do if the two boxers reach a deal to face each other in the future.
"The weight category where Evgeny is boxing has become very interesting. In it, there are many good boxers. One of them - is, as you said, Filipino Nonito Donaire, who has decided to move up in weight. With him, we would very much like to face after a fight or two," Klimas said.
