Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire Jr. are undeniably among the best Filipino boxers this generation has ever seen but they have never been under the same fight card together. But things are about to change because this coming November 5, 2016, the two will finally be fighting on the same fight card at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada!
This is not just exciting news for fans but also a dream come true for Top Rank chief executive Bob Arum, their mutual promoter.
According to Arum, he had long been trying to get the two to fight under the same fight card – of course, Pacquiao would be fighting in the main event while Donaire will be the undercard. Team Pacquiao had also been repeatedly preventing him from making it happen, the promoter claimed.
This year, however, the veteran promoter was finally able to convince Team Pacquiao to let Donaire be part of the undercard – and this would surely be something that many fans will be looking forward to seeing!
Both boxers, who happen to come from General Santos City (though Pacquiao is now announced as the ‘boxer from Sarangani’ after he moved there some years ago) have a strong fan base which could earn Arum some serious bucks.
If the plan will push through, Donaire will be fighting against Jessie Magdaleno to defend his title while Mexican-American Jessie Vargas will be Pacquiao’s opponent. Aside from these possibly exciting fights, the undercard will also include China’s Zou Shiming who’s looking to win his first world title and Mexico’s Oscar Valdez who will be trying to defend his belt.
How Many Tickets Will Be Sold?
The Thomas and Mack Center seats around 19,000 people – and as many as 7,000 tickets will only be sold for $50! So, tickets are certainly going to sell like hotcakes and Arum is also expecting more pay-per-view subscriptions, especially now that Donaire will finally be headlining the fight card along with the country’s most famous boxer.
