Donaire Getting Himself in Top Form For Nishioka Clash

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

With his body getting stronger after stopping his occasional drinking, World Boxing Organization/International Boxing Federation super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire says his body is really healthy and he recovers right away after a hard workout.

Donaire, who is training at the Undisputed Gym in San Carlos City, California for his crucial battle against Japanese southpaw Toshiaki Nishioka  for the World Boxing Council Diamond Belt at the Home Depot Center in Carson City on Oct. 13 said “training so far has been excellent.”

Donaire told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that he is getting into shape “really fast” and that he had already sparred four rounds earlier this week against super flyweight Bruno Escalante, who was born in Cebu City but fights out of the United States and has a record of 5- 1-1 with 3 knockouts.

Donaire said his weight was good and is now at 132 pounds, just 10 pounds over the super bantam weight limit of 122.

Informed that Nishioka has been training for sometime, Donaire jokingly said “he’s been training for almost a year now but that doesn’t bother me. He can train for two or three years and I’ll stay the same by training six to eight weeks and I’m ready for the fight.”

Donaire said trainer Robert Garcia drives over from Oxnard to check on his sparring, even as he revealed that they take the opportunity to discuss “how we are going to plan for the fight.”

The four-division world champion said his manager Cameron Dunkin had lined up a couple of sparring partners as well as Garcia.
