Excellent.

John is a very decent fighter but that Marquez fight seemed to have put the frighteners on him regarding taking risks. He's hardly stepped up after losing pretty clearly to JMM in my opinion but he's a solid operator and it's another good fight for Donaire if it comes off

I very much doubt it happens unless the reefer and senility hit Arum harder than he can take. That said, if it does happen, unfortunately, I don't think your average "fan" here is capable of understanding how great a match this would be.

The amount of fights that can be made with Donaire and they want to make Chris John!

Im sorry, Bob Arum is protecting him, its ****ing disgusting, he is the new Juanma

I hope John's got something left, because somewhere near his best he'd give Donaire lots to think about IMO

Spot on, it's a terrific fight, seeing as John is maybe coming to the end of his career he might accept the fight, he can't be making much money defending against nobodies in Indonesia.

Joke fight. Chris John is more past it now than when he struggled with Rocky Juarez.

Donaire has no business at 126. He was a fair few pounds lighter than Arce in the ring.

He does, however, have a lot of business in his own weight division. Namely Rigondeaux and Mares. There's no excuse for the Rigo fight not happening.

John's got nothing left , i make reference to Juanma simply because TR's protection of Donaire is now just borderline criminal activity, people are being robbed of a top top fighter in his prime years so Top Ranks revenue increases and Doniare doesnt lose any fights!

Come on fella's for ****s sake can you not see this!

Donaire is leaving a trail of unfinished business in his wake every time he steps up in weight, and ill be honest, i dont think he's ready for FW! Donaire goes in the favourite because Chris John is shot, but ill say this, if there's something left in the tank Donaire may just regret moving up again for no apparent reason!

Holy hell... The new JuanMa? When he's been fighting top contenders the last two years, brutally taking out Montiel and Nishioka, the two best in their respective divisions?

Those sort of comments will make people think you've got a learning disability.

The Rigo fight is a nothing, quite frankly. The guy has done nothing to merit a shot. The one argument you have is with the Mares fight, but that's on Arum.
