We want Frampton or Quigg for Donaire claims Bob Arum

IF former Pound for Pound ranked Philippine puncher Nonito Donaire is victorious in Macao on July 18 he will target a clash with either Carl Frampton or Scott Quigg according to his promoter.

The ‘Filipino Flash’ will fight French man Anthony Settoul on the same night Kiko Martinez trades leather with Kiko Martinez and if he continues his victorious return to super bantamweight he will target a clash with either the Belfast man or the Bury man.

Arum told Boxingscene “If he is successful we are going to match him with one of the two English guys,” mistakenly labeling the former Irish Senior Champion English!

After ‘The Jackal’s’ demolition of mandatory challenger Chris Avalos earlier this name former World champ Donaire’s name was mentioned. Shane McGuigan, Frampton’s coach, spoke confidently when asked how his charge would fair against the ‘Flash’ and suggested Donaire was a name that could help the IBF World champs American profile.
