The "Flash" meets "Speed King": Nishioka-Donaire encounter will be classic

October 13, Saturday (October 14 Manila time), the "Filipino Flash" Nonito Donaire (29-1, 18 knockouts) will be facing a veteran Japanese fighter known as the "Speed King" Toshiaki Nishioka (39-4-3, 24 knockouts) in the super bantamweight division. Donaire's third outing at 122 pounds after moving up in weight from 118 pounds will be at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. It will be a tough test for the Filipino champion as Nishioka, unbeaten for the last eight years and along with his branded killer left cross and straight, is a fearless ring assasssin who has the speed and explosiveness combined. Mexicans Johny Gonzales, and Rafael Marquez, among others, fell victims to the Japanese warrior's deceptively fast straight left. The "Filipino Flash", on the other hand, posessess one of the sport's most lethal left hooks highlighted in the fights against Vic "Raging Bull" Darchinyan and that one of the Mexican heavy puncher Fernando "Chochulito" Montiel.

Donaire would like to collect all the belts and unify the super bantamweight division before climbing up a notch higher: the featherweight division. At featherweight and super featherweight divisions, he will have a lot of worthy opponents to choose from. But Nishioka is no spring chicken and one who is too dangerous to be just taken lightly. The hard-hitting Japanese could be relentless but as well a thinking fighter, slowly breaking down opponents and making sure to finish them off. His only weakness is inside-fighting but he makes up for what he lacks by throwing that well-timed straight left sending most of his opponents to dreamland.

Expect fireworks to explode come Saturday night (Sunday morning in the Philippines) as two of the sports' best 122-pounder collides. From the opening bell (it sure will be action-packed and full of drama) till there's but only one man left standing raising his hands in victory, this fight will certainly have the making of a classic.
