Nonito Donaire will meet Guillermo Rigondeaux tomorrow night on HBO from Radio City Music Hall in New York, and today the super bantamweight titlists will weigh in for the fight. You can watch the weigh-in event live on BLH from 2:00 pm EDT.
Donaire (31-1, 20 KO) is the reigning Fighter of the Year, following a solid 4-0 year where he beat Wilfredo Vazquez Jr, Jeffrey Mathebula, Toshiaki Nishioka, and Jorge Arce. Rigondeaux (11-0, 8 KO) is a Cuban amateur legend looking to truly make his mark on the pro game. Already the WBA 122-pound titlist, he's looking to unify with Donaire's WBO title and establish himself as the best super bantamweight in the sport today.
The undercard won't be televised by HBO, as this is a one-fight broadcast, but it does feature prospects Mikael Zewski (18-0, 14 KO); Sean Monaghan (17-0, 10 KO); Felix Verdejo (4-0, 3 KO); Glen Tapia (17-0, 10 KO); Jesse Hart (5-0, 4 KO); Toka Kahn Clary (4-0, 3 KO); Erick De Leon (2-0, 1 KO); and Dario Soccia (2-0, 0 KO).
