Donaire Explains Reason For Shunning Mares Fight

WBO super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire has explained why he turned down the opportunity to face Abner Mares.


Mare’s promoter Golden Boy Promotion reportedly offered Donaire $3 million to face Mares but the ‘Filipino Flash’ said the contract did not explain full details of the fight.


Speaking to Ring Tv, Donaire said: "From what I’m hearing, there is really no proper venue, no proper date, no later than this, no later than that, that’s not good enough”.


A 90 day postponement clause in the contract was just one of the problems Donaire was not pleased with


“A 90-day postponement? I mean, come on. I’m in this phase where if I can fight four times a year, then I’ll fight four times a year,” added Donaire.


The main obstacle,though could be that Donaire is promoted by Top Rank, who will not want to co promote an event with Golden Boy.
