Montiel-Donaire: Sulaiman Says Either Can Win By KO

By Jhonny Gonzalez

A true clash of titans, says the president of World Boxing Council, Jose Sulaiman, when describing the bantamweight clash between WBC/WBO champion Fernando Montiel and Filipino challenger Nonito Donaire, who are scheduled to face off on February 19 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sulaiman says either boxer can end this fight with a knockout because of the big power they have in their punches.

"Montiel is a destroyer. When he connects on an opponent, his punches can annihilate anyone. It will be a tremendous fight from the first round to the end. With the power that both have in their fists, either can end it by knockout," Sulaiman told Osiris Cruz. "Montiel has overcome the great challenges in this sport. He went to Japan to dethrone [Hozumi] Hasegawa, but now he has an even more difficult challenge to be opposite an opponent who is hungry for victory."

"Nonito is a highly respected fighter who has faced the best in the world and has weathered every engagement. In his last fight he won in emphatic fashion (knocking out Wladimir Sidorenko in four) and he is very motivated to face the 'KO-Chulito.'"
