On October 13, Carson, California, two champions from Asia going to fight for the IBF and WBO super-bantamweight belts. Also, very promising looks the undercard fight at light-welter, between two hot contenders
The owner of the both belts, Philipino Nonito Donaire, 29, today is one of the most intriguing fighters of the world. This is already the third weight division in which Nonito has eleven WBC, IBF and WBO belts. Donaire is considered as real full-bodied succesor of his famous compatriot Manny Pacquiao's glory. The first time Nonito made the world to talk about himself in 2007, when he stopped in the 5-th then unbeaten Armenian Vic Darchinyan and took his IBF flyweight title. Then came the victories over such a long-term champions as Ukrainian Wladimir Sydorenko, Mexican Fernando Montiel and Omar Narvaez of Argentina. The challenger Toshiaki Nishioka, 36, from Japan, some time ago won and defended for 6 times, before vacating, the WBC belt at the very same division. But even earlier, Nishioka tried to achieve the WBC bantamweight belt for four unsuccesful times against Thai Veeraphol Sahaprom. Their epic battle-story went out for four long years, with two draws and two losts for Nishioka. The favourite on October 13 is, of course, Nonito Donaire, but we are looking forward to see how the Japanese samurai will use his huge experience to get the titles once more!
In warming-up fight will meet two unbeaten contenders, Brandon Rios, 30(22 KO)-0-1, and Mike Alvarado, 33(23 KO)-0, both from the States. The both fighters are real punchers and seem very motivated to get the chance for title-shot in their next fight, probably. So, also this fight is going to be very exiting, too!
