Donaire vs Mathebula LIVE Stream Online

Donaire vs Mathebula Live Stream:  The Filipino boxing superstar Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire is going to go up the ring and fight on a taller fighter in Jeffrey Mathebula of South Africa.

The Donaire vs Mathebula fight is going to happen on July 7, 2012, at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California for the 122-pound WBO-IBF title unification.

Nonito Donaire Will Defeat the Taller Mathebula

The 29-year old Donaire boasts of 28-1, 18 Kos fight record.  Most recently, he vacated the bantamweight division to go up to junior featherweight.

He won the vacant title against Wilfredo Vazquez Jr on points most recently.

According to Dunkin, Donaire wanted an opponent who will be a great challenge to him.  And thus, Top Rank and HBO arrived with Mathebula.

"It's a fight that Nonito asked for.  Top Rank was offering us other fighters, Mijares and Marroquin to name two, but he wanted a unification fight. Nonito thought this guy (Mathebula) was a great fighter and would push him to the limit. Nonito said, 'I want something that will fire me up and this guy presents me with a challenge.' "

In his training in Los Angeles, Donaire looks great and is in good shape. 

Robert Garcia is the head trainer/coach of Nonito.

Jeffrey Mathebula, The Taller Fighter

Compared to Donaire, the African Jeffrey Mathebula is taller.  Donaire only stands at 5’7 while Mathebula stands at 5’10.

The African champion holds a 26-3-2, 14 Kos.  This 32-year old fighter won his championship belt last March against Takalani Ndlovu in their rematch.

Mathebula’s camp is very happy with this opportunity of a unification bout against Nonito.

Branco Milenkovic, promoter of Mathebula, said,

"I have worked with Top Rank before and again these negotiations were fair and we reached the deal.  Now I am excited that Jeffrey is getting an opportunity to fight a great fighter like Nonito Donaire. I know there
were some other names being mentioned. I am not downplaying Mijares, but Jeffrey has more ability.

If I believed Jeffrey had no chance to win this fight, I wouldn't make the fight. He can win the fight and he is excited to make his first trip to America to fight a big fight and be on HBO. Without a doubt, Nonito is the favorite. He's a great fighter, but I believe Jeffrey will come to win. My fighters always come to put on a good performance."
