Donaire faces Aussie again

By Ronnie Nathanielsz | Jul. 10, 2013 at 12:01am
Former World Boxing Organization, Ring Magazine and World Boxing Council Diamond Belt super bantamweight titlist Nonito Donaire will face former three-division world champion Vic Darchinyan in a rematch.

The Australian has longed for this rematch ever since he was knocked out in the fifth round by Donaire, who grabbed his International Boxing Organization/International Boxing Federation flyweight belts on July 7, 2007.

“It’s likely to happen sometime in November,” Top Rank promoter Bob Arum informed the Manila Standard.

Donaire himself said early Tuesday morning that he was not certain, who his opponent would be, but that he had been asked to stay at 122 pounds for his next fight.

The four-division world champion said he has been doing some light training to stay in shape, but would have to work on bringing his weight down since he is now around 140 pounds.

Donaire earlier expressed his desire for a chance to avenge his surprising loss to former two-time Cuban Olympic gold medalist Guillermo Rigondeaux in New York last April 13, telling Manila Standard he wanted  that rematch more than ever, but his wish may have to wait.

Darchinyan said he wanted to face Donaire in September.

“I don’t want to sit and wait for him (Donaire) until November. I will have one more tune-up fight sometime at the end of August and will fight Donaire in November. It’s a good time for me. I’m okay with it,” Darchinyan said.

The Australian boxer said he’s been doing some light training and after a tune-up fight, he’d take off for a couple of weeks before he resumes training for the Donaire fight.
