‘Bring 'em on’- Donaire

Nonito Donaire Jr.LAS VEGAS - Newly crowned WBC and WBO bantamweight king Nonito Donaire just can’t wait to lay his hands on another foe. He wants to return to the ring the soonest possible time and unite all the bantamweight belts and climb another division afterwards.

Days after sending a strong signal to the world with a frightening second-round knockout of Mexican mauler Fernando Montiel, the Filipino-American said he wants to return to the ring at the soonest possible time.

Anselmo Moreno of Panama, the reigning WBA bantamweight champion, has been mentioned as a possibility for a fight to be held in San Francisco sometime in May.

Top Rank chief Bob Arum, who also promotes Donaire, said he is looking at either May or June as Donaire’s much-awaited return.

Donaire had earlier made his intentions known that he wants to become the undisputed champion in the 118-lb class, thus making Moreno a hot candidate to be signed as Donaire’s next rival.
Arum said from now onwards, Donaire will headline his own card.

Moreno has a 30-1-1 win-loss-draw record with 10 knockouts.

Donaire, who just bought a home for him and wife Rachel, received $350,000 for his stirring 2nd round KO win over Montiel and wants to climb the ring as often as he could to reach the seven- figure ceiling for every fight his hero Manny Pacquiao has achieved after pocketing his 7th and 8th wonders of the beak busting business.

“I want to unify the bantamweight division and then move to the next class,” Donaire, Jr. commented right after snatching the WBO and WBC bantamweight belts from Montiel. The Filipino ‘Flash’ even mentioned the featherweight crown of Juan Manuel if he could not get a unification title fight with anyone holding the other belts.

Arum, however, said he would find a very suitable foe for Donaire sometime in June, if he could not arrange a May fight for the Filipino fighter.
