No Scott Quigg-Nonito Donaire?

Fight fans were digging that proposed Nonito Donaire tangle against Brit Scott Quigg, which was looking promising to unfold in England the third week of November.

But maybe they best set their sights on some other faceoff…

Donaire, age 32, told RING that he’s hearing that Quigg (31-0-2; age 26), the WBA “regular” 122-pound beltholder, is having some second thoughts, for reasons unknown, and he was told Team Quigg is maybe looking at other fish to try and fry. [Editor’s note: THE RING does not recognize the WBA’s “regular” titles, thus the only WBA 122-pound titleholder is RING champ Guillermo Rigondeaux.]

That’s cool, the 35-3 Donaire, a Cali resident, told me.



Time’s a ticking, the end of November isn’t that far away, so he’d like to lock down something of import shortly.

If it isn’t Quigg, Donaire said, c’est la vie, as someone else will get it.
