Four-division boxing champion Nonito Donaire has signed on with Ringstar Sports in hopes of building back his name into contention.
“Exploring what was out there in the new landscape of boxing was unnerving and exciting at the same time,” said Nonito Donaire, “I have known Richard for many years and have always respected what he has been able to do for the fighters he promotes. At this point in my career I want the biggest fights possible and Richard’s track record to deliver them speaks for itself. The thought of the mega-fights against the likes of Mares, Santa Cruz, Selby or Frampton gets my blood boiling. The next chapter of my career is starting now and I am excited to say that it is with Ringstar.”
Donaire claimed the flyweight title back in 2007 with a win over Vic Darchinyan, defending that belt three times before moving to bantamweight and besting Fernando Montiel to become a two-division champion.
He went on to claim the super bantamweight belt and earn his 27th consecutive victory with a 2012 win over Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr., and added several “Fighter of the Year” awards to his resume.
Donaire also has won the featherweight and claimed a second title at super bantamweight. He is set to return to action in September.
