Nonito Donaire Has No Plans To Retire

Nonito Donaire isn’t just planning to stay in competitive boxing, he is targeting huge fights in his future career. According to the reports, he is planning to take on Kazuto Ioka and Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez before moving back up to chase bantamweight greatness.

Despite a crushing defeat against Naoya Inoue two months ago, the former four-time World champion has stated that he doesn’t have any plans to retire.

Instead, the legendary fighter, who turns 40 in November, is planning to drop down to the 115lbs division to compete in titanic tussles against the current WBO champion and the sensational Chocolatito.

“It’s a really good fight with Chocolatito and people are saying it would be ‘legend versus legend’” Donaire told

“It’s a big fight. But I do like the Ioka fight as well because I want to get that title and become a five-division champion and then move back up to 118 and go for the undisputed crown once everything else is open and I get another opportunity for it.”

The 39-year-old has also explained that he was inclined of moving to super flyweight in the hours before he faced Inoue last month.

“Before the fight with Inoue, Richard Schaefer and I talked about going down to 115,” Donaire said.

“Making the weight was very simple for me and I made it quickly. I even made 117 before stepping on the scales”.
