Arum wants Donaire vs Magdaleno in September

Top Rank Promoter Bob Arum wants Donaire to face Jessie Magdaleno on September 2016.


This is the plan and Arum thinks that Jessie Magdaleno is the best fighter that Donaire should face proving that he is the best super bantamweight fighter in the world.

Arum said “I’m negotiating a fight between Donaire and Magdaleno,” “It is going to be a blockbuster because they are both aggressive fighter. Nonito is a great fighter and he could be a greater fighter if he trains seriously.”

Donaire who successfully defended his title in Cebu last April 2016 against Bedak should work hard double than he works hard vs Bedak.

Magdaleno, however, showed interest to fight Donaire  “I want to fight Nonito [Donaire],” Magdaleno told Hesiquio Balderas of Fightnews.com. “We as a team know that we have the tools to beat him and I want the WBO title. Look at my record; I’m 23-0 with 17 KOs. Donaire is a great fighter and I respect him, but I’m hungry and I believe that this is my time. That’s why I want to challenge him to fight.”

Besides Magdaleno, Donaire also wants to revenge his lost to Guillermo Rigondeaux. Rigo defeats Donaire in 2013 for the super bantamweight unification bout.
