Nonito Donaire Vs Fernando Montiel Headline the Boxing Weekend
ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights
Fernando Guerrero, 20-0, 16 KO’s, looks to continue his winning ways on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights as he takes on Derrick Findley, 17-4, 11 KO’s, with the NABF Middleweight Title on the line.
Guerrero has been facing some relatively tough opposition as of late and coming out victorious, with his biggest win being a decision over Ishe Smith. Findley has faced Andre Ward and Andre Dirrell, but would lose both fights. All of his defeats came at the hands of undefeated fighters and Guerrero hopes to add his name to that list.
In the co-feature, Shawn Porter, 17-0, 13 KO’s, faces off against Anges Adjaho, 25-4, 14 KO’s, in a 10 round NABF Welterweight Title fight.
Las Vegas, Nevada
The “Other Filipino Boxing Star,” Nonito Donaire, 25-1, 17 KO’s, will face the WBO and WBC Bantamweight Champion, Fernando Montiel, 44-2-2, 34 KO’s. Donaire made his impression on boxing when he flattened rising star, Vic Darchinyan, in five rounds. He has been undefeated since 2001 and vows to stop Montiel, a man that has never been knocked out.
Montiel has never lost clearly, with his two defeats being by split decision and majority decision and he comes into this fight motivated and ready to stop Donaire. Expect fireworks early and often. This is an incredibly exciting bout and a pick’em fight.
