While Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton - two major belt-holders at 122-pounds - continue to circle around each other - it looks like Quigg, who currently holds the WBA super bantamweight title, is looking at a possible showdown with Nonito Donaire, who just recently came back down to this division.
"There's definitely a possibility of that happening in the fall," BoxingScene was told by Carl Moretti, VP of Boxing Operations for Top Rank, which handles 'the Filipino Flash', who got back on track by defeating William Prado in the Philippines on March 28th.
"I think Nonito's plans are to fight again this summer, probably in Macao and then there's no question he wants a title fight and we've had some early discussions with Eddie Hearn and there's interest from both parties. So after this fight in the summer, hopefully we'll be able to put that together."
Donaire's appearance in Asia is scheduled for July 18th.
Now, the question is just where would a possible Quigg-Donaire fight be held, the U.S. or the U.K.?
Moretti stated - "I think we'd look at both scenarios. Realistically it's probably a bigger fight over there because of Nonito's name and fame, and honestly Quigg's drawing power. At the end of the day there's probably more money on the table to go to England but we'll look at all possible sites. But that's a goal for us.''
