I'm sure a huge signing bonus is involved but other than that I don't understand this move by Donaire.

After Mares (if he wins the Showtime tourney) what other big fights can Golden Boy offer?

Not to mention the lawsuit that Arum is going to bring, which may very well keep ND on the shelf for a bit. Makes very little sense with all the momentum he's recently gained.

Hahaha, what great news to hear. I don't know what Golden Boy has planned, but I already know Arum was going to bring him up like he was bringing up Pacquiao. I'm happy about this for now.

I'm thrilled as well.

It was totally shitty that Donaire ever had to smile and answer questions politely when asked why he wasn't fighting on the undercards of Pacquiao fights. He deserved better.

I guess this means Donaire plans to stay at bantam for a while, cause Arum was not trying to hear about him fighting anyone from the Showtime tournament. He was all about 122, 126...

Yeah but Fitz do you think Golden Boy are going to do it any differently?

Exactly.

I don't know. At least with this, I have hope. Arum already scoffed at the suggestions that Donaire could fight one of the other champions at bantam. Like they were not worth it and he beats them on paper, so there isn't much point. He was already talking about a fight with Lopez or Gamboa. While minutes ago, Donaire was saying it was always his dream to become undisputed in a division and would love to fight the winner.
So to answer you question. I don't know if it will be done differently, but I hate Arum anyways, so I'm happy about that and there is hope at least. I suppose if Donaire's next fight is against one of the other bantams, I can say that Golden Boy have done it differently.

YES! I'm so happy! Now all we need is for Pacquiao to sign with Don King!

Good for Nonito i think GBP will treat him better.

Arum must be f*cking pissed though.
