NONITO DONAIRE

“Confident fighters are dangerous fighters. I know that. But there other fighters who said before a fight they were stronger than me, hit harder, were going to knock me out. “Walters is a good champion but really how many quality fights has he been in compared to where I have been in my career?”We both have speed, we both have power. It’s an explosive fight. This is going to end in a knockout. I will go into the ring and do my best.”

NICHOLAS WALTERS

“Donaire is a very good champion. We both have speed and power. The difference is intelligence. I was born to fight. The bigger the fight the better. “If Donaire isn’t right, he’s going to get knocked out. Maybe five rounds, maybe less. Not sure yet.”But you know what? Donaire stepped up and took this fight. He didn’t have to. For that, I respect him for getting in the ring with me.”

Rude boy is full of jive. He's the one who will be going to sleep in five. "The Filipino Flash" is going to make him feel as if he has been stung by thousand killer bees from the hive. Holla!


-The Commish :

I truly believe this bout will make it onto the list of "F.O.Y." I'm glad Jack Reiss will be the third man in the ring. There will be no nonsense with him as the "traffic cop" in there. I keep flip-flopping on my pick for this one. While I have no idea who to pick as we close in on the fight, I do know this: It's gonna' be one helluva scrap. -Randy G.

Come on RG there's no jiving from the Axe Man! There can be no mistaken... There's bread in the oven bakin... Prepare for the Rude Boy Jamaican! I think someone said it rightly on here a few days ago, this is a crossroads fight for Donaire. Props to him for taking this fight, we all had no doubts that he doesn't shirk a challenge, but this fight will be the test that shows whether he has that hunger and determination to still bang away at the top of the top. Can't wait for it!

I see The Filipino Flash passing with flying colours. Trying to find him, the rule boy is going to get a lot of ulcers. The "Axe Man" is going to be using all the wrong muscles. Rule boy has been smoking too much ghanja and running a lot of hustles. He's been so high that he could reach the sky. Now TFF is gonna chew him up like a piece of cherry pie. Holla!
