Donaire-Nishioka,Alvarado-Rios,art and savagery, who will prevail?
By Nick Bellafatto

When former junior featherweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka (34-9-3, 24 KO’s) fighting out of Tokyo, Japan enters the ring this weekend at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California to face pound-for-pound prizefighter and IBF/WBO champion Nonito “The Filipino” Flash Donaire (29-1, 18 KO’s) of San Mateo, California, he will be just that, a former champion.

Having been stripped of his championship belt by the WBC subsequent to six successful title defenses as a result of Toshiaki’s stated inability to defend that distinction for a stretch, he is nevertheless ranked number 1 in the division by Ring Magazine so that Nonito Donaire has yet another opportunity to make a statement once the bell rings this Saturday night on HBO.

And in what could be deemed an irony of sorts, Donaire is ranked by the same above ratings authority, Ring Magazine, at number 3 underneath Nishioka at 122 pounds while simultaneously listing the Filipino prizefighter at number 5 in the world, an odd circumstance to be sure considering Toshiaki is nowhere to be found in the top ten.

Of course this weekends contest will no doubt dispel some or all of the discrepancies in relation to each fighter’s status as apparently someone feels that Donaire has not yet fully proven himself in a division he recently came upon only two fights ago. And in those two fights Nonito would impressively win major world titles in each, with an opportunity to garner a third in the form of the vacant WBC Diamond belt come this Saturday .
