Arum Lines Up Potential Donaire Opponents

New WBO/IBF super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire appears to have a pool of prospective opponents at his disposal according to his promoter Bob Arum.


Fresh from watching one of the top five pound for pound fighters defeat Jeffrey Mathebula in a unification battle Arum revealed there is a number of potential opponents the ‘Filipino Flash’ can face next.


“There are a lot of good matchups we can make with Nonito,” said Arum. “There’s [Jorge] Arce, Toshiaki Nishioka, [Guillermo] Rigondeaux. We can make a lot of good fights with those guys.”


Donaire may be developing into one of the finest boxers on the planet but surely Arum must have been disappointed that only around 3,500 fans turned up to support the event?


“No, we weren’t disappointed,” said an upbeat Arum. “We had about thirty-two hundred and we had it set up for thirty-five, thirty-six hundred. We were happy with the crowd, that’s what we expected.”
