Nonito Donaire, Jr. is back in the US after spending a month in the Philippines where he and wife Rachel formally exchanged vows before God in an elegant church wedding attended by their closest friends and family members.
Coincidentally on the way back to the US, Donaire and I boarded the same plane where I was able to interview him about his Philippines trip and career plans for 2012.
One of the interesting things Donaire shared with me is that he plans to fight four fights in 2012, and that there are talks of him fighting in the Philippines in 2012.
“That’s what they’re saying. Maybe sometime around June when the MOA (Mall of Asia) Stadium gets built,” Donaire said, and added, “we can probably have Arce (Jorge) out there or Nishioka (Toshiaki / WBC super bantam champ) or whoever it is out there; it’s going to be great!”

For his next opponent, however, Donaire said that the frontrunners are Wilfredo Vasquez, Jr. for the vacant WBO super bantam belt (Arce vacated), and IBF super bantam champ Takalani Ndlovu of Africa.
“I’ve heard the South African IBF Champion, and I’ve also heard Vasquez for the WBO with Arce vacating WBO, but one thing that is for sure is that, I’m going to go back to the US and see who’s name is really on the line. That’s going to be a good fight anyway, either way regardless if it is the South African or Vasquez, Jr.; they’re both good fighters and it’s for a title. I’ll find out soon. Whoever it is, I’m going to be ready, but yea, those are the two names right now,” Donaire revealed to me.
