Scott Quigg-Nonito Donaire in the works for November 21

Scott Quigg and Nonito Donaire appear to be on a collision course for November.

Nonito Donaire may be traveling to the United Kingdom later this year as he looks to rejoin the elite ranks at 122 pounds, as he's in talks for a November 21 fight against WBA "world" titleholder Scott Quigg, a fight that would take place in Manchester.

Donaire (35-3, 23 KO) has won a pair of tune-up bouts this year, stopping William Prado and Anthony Settoul in two rounds each. The 32-year-old "Filipino Flash" moved back down to super bantamweight after being mauled by Nicholas Walters last year.

Quigg (31-0-2, 23 KO) recently scored a career-best win, smashing former titlist Kiko Martinez in two rounds on July 18, showing off big power. Quigg, 26, would be looking for another career-best win against Donaire, or at the least a career-best name on his record, as Donaire would easily be the biggest star he's fought.

Manager Cameron Dunkin says that Donaire is ready, willing, and able to go to England for the fight, too, so that shouldn't be any hang-up. That's where the most money is, so it makes sense.

Does Donaire have enough left in the tank to beat a younger, strong fighter? Will this be another step forward for Quigg?
