Nonito Donaire - "I’m calling Frampton out"

4 division world champion Nonito Donaire wants "The Jackal" for his next assignment.

Donaire Said:

“I’m calling Frampton out,”

“If it happens three or four months from now, I’ll be over-trained if I begin sparring this week,” he said. “I’ll give myself 2 1/2 months to train for Frampton. Once everything is finalized, I’ll plan where to train. I could train in Manila or Tokyo. If Freddie (Roach) can bring in good sparring partners, I could train at Wild Card in L. A. I would’ve liked to fight for the world title but it looks like everyone’s occupied. Leo Santa Cruz is in talks with Abner Mares and Lee Selby is defending his IBF title on Dec. 9. Oscar Valdez is booked in March and I’m not sure about Gary Russell. But you know me, I’m ready for anyone. I’ll fight whomever Ringstar puts in front of me.”

While Frampton replied with “[It] would be a great fight Nonito.”

Donaire is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Ruben Garcia Hernandez last September while also won his last fight against Horacio Garcia also via UD last November 11, 2017.
