winner of mares-moreno, john or salido. I don't have a list although I do think he is near ATG material. A win against john or salido alone is big, quite a big achievement for a guy who started from flyweight. A win against ponce or caballero would also be something. All the big names at 122 are a big step up compared to his current weight, a fight against anyone of them is no joke.
Personally I'd like to see him test the weight first, fight someone less relevant like juanma before taking on the big names, then probably chris john. Ponce is a dangerous fighter, honestly a bit scared for donaire if he ever cross paths with the man
