Jessie Magdaleno: "it won’t go past eight rounds"


Jessie Magdaleno is set to face the current WBO superbantamweight champion Nonito Donaire, Jr. on November 5, 2016 in Pacquiao-Vargas undercard.


Magdaleno said in a youtube clip: “I respect any fighter who steps into the ring and does his job,” “Donaire was the star in the beginning when I first started. But now, it’s my time to be the star. Anything is possible in the ring. It’s boxing. You’ll never know what will happen. From what I’m studying and looking at, it won’t go past eight rounds.”

He also added: “Donaire is still dangerous at his age,” “But my youth will overpower that. It’s my first world title fight and it’s a dream for me to become a world champion.”

Magdaleno is very confident that he can beat the 4 division world champion. He is ready and he is working hard for this fight.

Donaire however, still believed that he can defend his title against the Mexican-American boxer. Donaire also has the plan to go back in the featherweight division where he can fight Carl Frampton or Leo Santa Cruz possible next year.
