MANILA, Philippines – Boxing trainer Robert Garcia said former super bantamweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. is an ideal opponent for Filipino-American boxer Nonito Donaire Jr.
Garcia, who trains Donaire, said Vazquez is a good match for the “Filipino Flash" especially after Donaire’s unimpressive bout against Omar Narvaez.
"Narvaez just wanted to survive. He is very defensive and didn't want to fight. We know that Vazquez will come to fight," said Garcia in Boxingscene.com.
Top Rank is currently arranging the Donaire-Vazquez fight. The bout will be Donaire’s first in the super bantamweight level.
Vazquez is the son of Puerto Rican boxing legend Wilfredo Vazquez Sr.
"I talked to (Donaire's manager) Cameron (Dunkin) a couple times. I've been in Mexico but it looks like it is going to happen. Vazquez is perfect for Nonito. One thing about Vazquez is that he can bang and he has pop. It should be a good action fight," said Garcia.
