MANILA, Philippines – Nonito Donier has been on the prowl since losing weight on Monday ahead of a rematch of his bantamweight integration with unbeaten Japanese Nawa Inoy.
Inoue weighs 118 pounds when Donaire hits the scales at 117.8 pounds. The two will meet again on Tuesday at Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
“I’m feeling good, I’m feeling great. It’s going to be an amazing night and you can look forward to seeing my best,” said Donner, who won his WBC title and went for Inouye’s WBA (Super) and IBF Belt.
“I’m very excited and this is going to be a very exciting fight,” he added.
Donaire (42-6, 28KOs) lost to Inoue (22-0, 19KOs) in a 12-round slagfest in their first showdown in 2019.
Donner, 39, is very confident of finishing Ino’s unbeaten run at this point.
