In news that will surely knock the wind out of several boxing fans' sails, 2012 Fighter of the Year and WBO jr. featherweight champion, Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire, Jr., informed this scribe that his next opponent will likely not be named Guillermo Rigondeaux nor Abner Mares.

This, according to Donaire, is because he wants to fight in March or April, and that negotiations with Mares' camp have been difficult, while Rigondeaux is slated to fight in February against somebody else.

"We have Mares; that's the fight we really want to make, but it's (negotiations) getting difficult," Donaire said and continued, "with Rigondeaux, he won't fight until June or July or something like that. They won't do it in March or April. We're looking at that schedule."

That said, Donaire revealed that they are already exploring other possible opponents for his return fight after being hailed as 2012's best fighter.

"We're looking at different names now, because those two are not available earlier in the year. They're not available. With Mares, we want to make it happen, but it's too difficult, and Rigondeaux doesn't want to fight in March," Donaire said.

Hardcore boxing fans will definitely be disappointed if a Mares or Rigondeaux fight can't be made for March, but just as the Jorge Arce fight which almost fell through last December, nothing is set in stone yet. There's still plenty of time to negotiate and work out a deal with either fighter, which, I'm sure, is what boxing fans would like to happen.

so if not one of these two, who's next in line???

    wala ng ibang kalaban sa 122 kundi sila Rigondeaux at Mares. Tune-up fight na lang siguro. Sino kaya ang maswerteng ifefeed sa wolf? :lol:
  • CaptainCharismaCaptainCharisma Moderator PEx Moderator
    wala talaga ako maisip e, cleaned out na ang division except sa dalawang aforementioned, move up na lang in weight habang nasa prime :lol:
  • Malabo niya makalaban si Mares kasi GBP. Si Rigo sana makalaban niya this year. Baka sirain din ni Arum ang career nito at si past his prime Cristian Mijares ang ipalaban sa kanya.

    Pwede rin siya na umakyat sa Featherweight and labanan niya si Chris John sa US o kaya dito sa Pilipinas. Wag siya pupunta sa japan at madadaya siya dun.

    no I want him to fight in Japan so I can watch him live again, no need for judges, he's going for the KO :lol:

    but yeah sana pumayag si Indonesian champion na sa Indonesia umiikot ang world, mag-man-up naman siya tagal-tagal na nyang champion andun lang sya sa lungga nya

    in other news, magiging tatay na daw si Nonito
  • I think Mares might leave GBP and sign a contract with Top Rank to get the crack he wants.

    Nonitz may not want his boy to enter the boxing world. :)

    di din natin masasabi yan. Sa tingin ko ang pananaw ni Nonito sa boxing e isang "sport" di gaya sa side ni pacman na kung di naman kelangan magboxing e wag nang pasukin.
  • CaptainCharismaCaptainCharisma Moderator PEx Moderator
    Donaire-Rigondeaux daw sa April 27 DAW
  • keehlnatekeehlnate PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Abner Mares is the top priority, if not then he will choose among:

    Guillermo Rigondeaux/Vic Darchinyan/Chris John

    yung tatlo daw na yan ang posibleng makalaban nya sa 2013

    2 fights at 122 then move to 126 before the year ends to dethrone the undefeated champ.
  • CaptainCharismaCaptainCharisma Moderator PEx Moderator
    Darchinyan? rematch gone too long na yan, laos na si Darchinyan

    Rigo/Mares/John sana ang maging order
  • it might be Rigo.

    matagal-tagal pa bago natin makita si Nonito III :lol:

    Golden Boy has offered up $3 million to Top Rank, to arrange a super showdown between Abner Mares and Nonito Donaire, to take place in June.

    The BWAA announced on Sunday that World Boxing Organization junior featherweight champion NONITO DONAIRE was the recipient of its Sugar Ray Robinson "Fighter of the Year" award. Donaire (31-1, 20 KOs) won all four of his world title fights last year, defeating Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr., Jeffrey Mathebula, Toshiaki Nishioka and Jorge Arce, the last two by knockout, to extend his 11-year winning streak to 30 bouts.

    Nonito has no plans fighting either in June or July because i think Rachel's about to give birth during that time frame.

    Nonito And Rachel Want To Have Baby’s Gender Rechecked

    As “Baby J” is his and Rachel's first child, Nonito begged off from engaging in a match in June and July so he could tend to daddy duties.

    so there was indeed a contract coming from Goldenboy but Top Rank turned it down because the fight will be set in June and not on April. Naglolokohan lang tong dalawang promoter na to :lol:

    ayos lang naman na di sila maglaban ngayon ni Mares dahil pareho naman silang aakyat ng timbang.

    kinkabahan ako sa laban na to, mga boxing analyst says Rigo is THE guy to beat in the bantamweight div. 1 match palang niya yung na panood ko, tumba din in the early rounds, kaya lang nobody din yun eh.. i think untested pa talaga to di pa talaga naka laban ng ka match niya. hope the flash's 100% come fight night!
