Japanese superstar Toshiaki Nishioka (39-4-3, 24KOs) sat a few seats away from BoxingScene.com on Saturday night at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. Nishioka was scouting Nonito Donaire (29-1, 18KOs), who decisioned Jeffrey Mathebula to unify the WBO/IBF super bantamweight titles.

Nishioka felt Donaire did well with the much taller opponent.

"He showed a different style tonight because he was fighting a much taller opponent, but he showed a different style and found a way to get inside," Nishioka said to BoxingScene.com.

Nishioka is eager and ready to challenge Donaire in the fall.

"Yes, that's what I want. I've been waiting for a year. I have no problems [doing the fight in the United States]," Nishioka said.

Nishioka is one of two boxers being considered to face Donaire in the fall. The other boxer being considered, and also viewed as the heavy favorite to land the fight, is four division world champion Jorge Arce of Mexico. If Nishioka is unable to secure Donaire, then he will consider a fight with WBC champion Abner Mares (24-0-1, 13KOs).

To avoid being pressured to make a mandatory defense, Nishioka gave up his WBC title to pursue a fight with Donaire. Earlier this year, Mares captured the vacant WBC title with a twelve round decision over Eric Morel.

"If I can't get [a fight with] Donaire, then Abner Mares is the only one [out there that I would consider fighting]," Nishioka said.

[QUOTE=jsfd26] Chill out bro, stop defending your duck. Donaire was just talking out his ass when he said he wanted Mares. He just wanna "impress" his fans with "tough" talk. Same way he said he want Rigo then last night he said "MAYBE." Next thing you know he will blame Arum for not making the ...

i would rather see him fight Donaire than Mares. i think Nishioka, being the crafty veteran he is, would solve Abner's style and neutralize him with in 6 rounds.

[QUOTE=Samsrealtor]Wow everyone is ducking Rigondeaux. Cowards[/QUOTE] You should fight him.

Nishioka has really put in the dues through his career to pick who he wants to fight at this point. Whether it's Abner or Donaire, Nishioka will be in a hell of a good fight up next.
