Donaire to face Montiel in November

8

Well, this is more like it. Today, Nonito Donaire posted on his facebook that Bob Arum is in the process of finalizing a bout between him and 118 pound titlist Fernando Montiel in November. Montiel had a bout scheduled for next month against Rafael Concepcion, but it seems that the bout may be off. This could be the challenge that Donaire has been looking for. Montiel was on the fringes of the pound for pound top 10 for a while, but had fallen off some before his stunning upset of Hozumi Hasegawa. However, even a faded Montiel would easily be among Donaire's toughest two fights of his career, which may help justify his absurd #4 position on the Ring's pound for pound list.
