Default Re: Donaire vs John next year

Some of you lot need to calm down. And Arum has said he WANTS to make Donaire/Rigo. The John fight is just one possible fight being discussed. Steve Kim also wrote this:

So what’s next for the consensus 2012 “Fighter of the Year,” Nonito Donaire? Well, Arum isn’t wavering from his comments in Houston (where Donaire blew out Jorge Arce a couple of weeks ago).

“We want him to fight [Guillermo] Rigondeaux. Absolutely.”

So does that mean that any possibility of a Donaire-Abner Mares fight has evaporated?

“I think the Mares fight can be made and we’ll try to get that done,” said Arum, who pointed out that Mares has a WBC mandatory obligation to fulfill. Should that get taken care of (and assuming Donaire also defeats the talented Cuban), Arum stated, “Then what we’ll do is offer Golden Boy a substantial sum of money for Golden Boy and Mares. If they take it, fine; if they don’t take it, we move on.”
