Donaire may fight at MOA March 28

/ 05:22 AM January 15, 2015

Nonito Donaire Jr. may just stage his comeback fight in the Philippines.

Website reported yesterday that the 32-year-old Donaire will fight against an undisclosed opponent on March 28 at Mall of Asia Arena in the undercard of a Donnie Nietes title bout to be promoted by ALA Promotions.

It will be Donaire’s first fight since he suffered a sixth round demolition at the hands of Nicholas Walters last October in Carson, California.

Donaire (33-3-0 with 21 knockouts) has earlier been reported to be fighting in the undercard of a Nietes bout in Macau early March.


But recent developments point to a possible return for Donaire who last fought in the Philippines in 2009 when he knocked out Raul Martinez at the Araneta Coliseum in a card that also included Brian Viloria.

Donaire’s conquest of Martinez sparked a run of success that saw him rise in the pound-for-pound list and eventually become the Fighter of the Year for 2012 by practically all media outfits.

But two days after receiving the version of the award from the Boxing Writers Association of America, Donaire lost via unanimous decision to Guillermo Rigondeaux in New York City. Marc Anthony Reyes
