It's official: 2012 Boxer of the Year Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire will face Cuban boxer Guillermo Rigondeaux on April 13.
Donaire plans to claim a unified title in his class after winning all four of his fights in 2012.
Donaire bagged the WBO, the RING and WBC diamond super bantamweight titles.
In the other corner of the ring will be “El Chacal,” who holds the WBA super bantamweight title after only eleven professional fights.
Boxing experts consider Rigondeaux as one of the greatest amatuer fighters of all time.
It was thought the fight wouldn't happen as both camps argued over drug testing details in the fight contract. – ANC Dateline Philippines, Feb. 22, 2013
