San Antonio, Texas - Throughout the week, Nonito Donaire (27-1, 18 KOs) and Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. (21-1-1, 18 KOs) exchanged verbals blows and promised to provide fireworks for the fans on Saturday night at the Alamodome, as they clash for the vacant super bantamweight title of the World Boxing Organization.
Donaire-vazquez is the co-featured bout to the middleweight clash between WBC champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and mandatory challenger Marco Antonio Rubio. Promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank expects 14,000 fans.
"This time it's personal, Nonito attack to my family and he said a lot of things. I can't wait to meet him in the ring," said Vazquez Jr., who says the Filipino boxer verbally attacked his wife on Twitter.
Donaire replied - "I'm not going to say anything more, I'll let my fists do the talking, and I'll give the people what they want."
