Boxing legends Roy Jones Jr and Nonito Donaire are in no doubt Nordine Oubaali will be successful in his bid to become world champion on January 19.
 
Bantamweight Oubaali (14-0-KO11) clashes with Rau’shee Warren in Las Vegas for the WBC world title and after a fantastic spar with Donaire, hopes the famous belt is heading to France are high.
 
Both boasting world titles in FOUR weight divisions, both Donaire and Jones Jr are in buoyant mood in Oubaali’s camp.

Donaire said after the spar: “Nordine is an amazing fighter and I think he’ll become world champion in this fight.
 
“His power is something you really feel when you’re in there with him and I really think he’s going to go in there and do a good job.”
 
Jones Jr added: “To see two world class guys go in and for Nonito to come and help Nordine out, you don’t find better people in the world than that.
 
“These guys are my favourites. These are the type of people who come through when you need it. No southpaw would give him rounds but Nonito came through and he gave him rounds.
 
“Nordine did a great job and he’s on point. Thanks to Nonito for coming through – now Nordine is ready to go and become champion of the world.”
 
Donaire replied: “I’m humbled, Roy!”
 
Oubaali vs. Warren will be broadcast on ITV4 in the UK, Showtime in the US, ABS-CBN in Morocco and a French broadcaster to be announced in due course.
