WBO jr featherweight champion Nonito “Filipino Flash” Donaire, undefeated WBA super bantamweight champion and former two-time Cuban Olympic gold medalist Guillermo “el Chacal” Rigondeaux and Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum hosted an international media conference call on Tuesday, discussing their upcoming world title unification battle which will take place Saturday in New York’s Radio City Music Hall.

Bob Arum: The buzz for this fight has been absolutely tremendous. In the next couple of days we’ll be able to announce a complete sellout of the Radio City Music Hall venue.

Nonito Donaire: It’s going to be an excellent fight. May the best man win, of course. I owe New York a good fight (his last fight in NYC was against Omar Narvaez) and I want to make this a good fight!

Guillermo Rigondeaux: In this fight I will try to engage more than I have in the past. I want to give the fans what they want to see. He’s an aggressive boxer. I will be very aggressive and I’m coming for him.
