Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire is scheduled to make his ring return sometime this September or October and two top level opponents are being considered, Vic Darchinyan and a rematch with a fighter that dominated Donaire last April minus one knockdown, Guillermo Rigondeaux.
Top Rank CEO Bob Arum spoke to Radio Rahim recently about the rematch and is pretty confident that the fight will take place in the near future. “A rematch is in order. I don’t know if it will happen right away but eventually we will do a rematch,” said Arum.
Arum believes Donaire will do better the next time around against Rigondeaux should he stick to the game plan and take the fight serious this time around.
