Nonito Donaire News: Juan Manuel Marquez Co-Feature At Cowboys Stadium In The Mix

After clearing up issues surrounding a potential hand fracture, super bantamweight champion Nonito Donaire is closing in on his next fight. Initial plans had him planning a June 16 fight against an undetermined opponent. That could now be changing to a July 14 co-feature with Juan Manuel Marquez at Cowboys Stadium. Top Rank Boxing is reportedly looking at a possible "Mexico vs. Philippines" theme show.

Jorge Arce was originally planned as Donaire's next opponent, but Arce is apparently out of the picture until at least the fall. In the name of the "Mexico vs. Philippines" theme, Donaire would potentially defend his WBO super bantamweight title against Victor Terrazas. While Terrazas is not a top contender, he has won seven straight fights, most recently a unanimous decision over Fernando Montiel in a bit of an upset.

If this type of show does not pan out, Donaire could end up fighting top super bantamweight Toshiaki Nishioka. There is an agreement in principle for such a fight, but the timing on it remains to be seen. Bad Left Hook also pointed to Guillermo Rigondeaux as a potential opponent if Nishioka and Arce fall through.
