Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. - I'm Ready For Nonito Donaire!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Super bantamweight contender Wilfredo "Papito" Vazquez Jr. (21-1-1, 18KOs) is ready for the big fights and he's willing to face WBC/WBO bantamweight champ Nonito Donaire, who plans to move up to 122-pounds in early 2012. Fighting for the first time since the TKO loss to Jorge Arce, Vazquez returned to action on Saturday night in Puerto Rico and stopped Mexico's Roberto Leyva in three rounds. Vazquez has been mentioned as one of the opponents being considered for Donaire's debut at 122.

"Now I would like to face Donaire. I have a promotional group that will handle securing the big names [for me]. I tried to correct the mistakes from my last fight. I worked hard on defense, moved my body and head a lot more, and circled around with my waist. I think we saw that in the fight," Vazquez said to Ray Alazaga.

"From now on, I will pay more attention. The next move is to return to the gym. The loss [to Arce] motivated me to become more educated and more dedicated to the sport."

[COLOR="Red"][SIZE="4"]The promoter who makes this fight is an accomplice to murder. WV2 should stick to over the hill shorties like Ivan Hernandez until he gets more experience.[/SIZE][/COLOR] :bsflag::bsflag::bsflag:
