Donaire promises to be 'smarter, more powerful' in featherweight return

MANILA, Philippines – Nonito Donaire Jr. vowed to bring the best version of himself when he tries to rejuvenate his boxing career against Mexico City’s Ruben Hernandez at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday (Sunday Manila time).

In a conference call Friday, Donaire said weight problems are a thing of the past as he will now fight again as a featherweight, a division he claimed to be most comfortable at.

“It's a tremendous feeling right now. I just need to gain a couple of pounds in muscle mass. I’m excited (to return to featherweight),” said the former four-division world champion.

Donaire will shoot for the vacant WBC silver featherweight title against Hernandez, who is coming off a seven-fight winning streak. He said he likes what he has seen in the 24-year-old Mexican so far.

“I saw one of his fights on YouTube. He comes in to fight,” he said.
