Nonito Donaire Signs with Ringstar Sports, Wants to Make 'The Biggest Fight Possible'


"The Filipino Flash" Nonito Donaire signs promotional pact with Richard Schaefers' Ringstar sports.

34 year-old Nonito Donaire, the 2012 Fighter of the Year and former multi world champion wants to make the biggest fight possible and targets big names in Featherweight division.

"Exploring what was out there in the new landscape of boxing was unnerving and exciting at the same time," said Nonito Donaire, "I have known Richard for many years and have always respected what he has been able to do for the fighters he promotes. At this point in my career I want the biggest fights possible and Richard's track record to deliver them speaks for itself. The thought of the mega-fights against the likes of Mares, Santa Cruz, Selby or Frampton gets my blood boiling. The next chapter of my career is starting now and I am excited to say that it is with Ringstar! I am grateful to my fans and team for their continued support!"

Former Golden Boy Promotions CEO and now Chairman and CEO of Ringstar Sports believes that Donaire still has got it to become a pound for pound boxer.

"Nonito is one of the modern day legends of our sport," said Richard Schaefer. "One of these rare fighters that always delivers and always knows how to entertain! I am convinced that he will again become one of the pound for pound best fighters in the world. No doubt about it! I want to thank his wife and manager, Rachel Donaire as well for the trust she places in me. We can't wait to get going!"

According to Schaefer, Donaire's first fight will be a tune-up which likely will take place on Sept. 23, or in early October.

"We'll get Nonito a fight in September or early October, a 10-round fight," Schaefer said. "We've been talking about opponents. Nonito is in Japan right now training but we've been talking about our plans. We'll get him this fight in the fall and then he fits in early next year for any of those big fights."
