Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20 KO’s) said the other night that he’s walking around at 145 lbs. right now, and he’s going to see if he can drop the weight to take a fight against Vic Darchinyan in October or November.

Donaire likely to fight Darchinyan in rematch in November

Bob Arum is looking to match Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20 KO’s) against Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28 KO’s) in a fight that’ll take place in November, according to Dan Rafael. Why Arum is interested in making this match after all these years is anyone’s guess. It’s likely that he sees Darchinyan as one of the few recognizable names that he can put with Donaire.

Arum: Donaire will fight in October or November

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is saying that former IBF/WBO super bantamweight Nonito Donaire (31-2, 20 KO’s) will be back in the ring in either October or November this year against a still to be determined opponent.

Left-Hook Lounge: Rigondeaux, Donaire, Garcia, & Roach!

Christopher N. (Atlanta, GA): How would you rate Donaire's performance? And would you entertain the thought of placing Rigondeaux on the P4P list? Vivek W. I think the best way to address your questions is to point to something I said a long time ago and have maintained ever since. The way I see the whole P4P topic is totally abstract from what the rest of the sport feels. I once touted Donaire's [...]

Donaire Relinquishes Lofty Status to Rigondeaux

Nonito "The Filipinio Flash" Donaire had it all. He was riding high, a fan favorite, a top P4P fighter, 2012 fighter of the year and someone who seemed to have no weaknesses. His speed, power and ring savvy had been too much for anybody he faced. A few bruises here and there, an occasional hand injury to remind him of his dominant performances and a pocket full of dough to dull the pain. His face [...]
