MANILA - Nonito Donaire's success at Pinoy Pride 30 late last month had opened the doors for bigger opportunities, as he hoped.

After demolishing Brazilian William Prado for the NABF super bantamweight strap, "The Filipino Flash" (34-3, with 22 victories by knockout) is now being primed for another crack at a world title. In his recent interview with, Donaire revealed that he was approached by the management team of WBA 122-pound champion Scott Quigg.

The bout is being targeted for July 18th in Macau, China.

"Quigg's people reached out to my manager to see if they could make the fight happen," said the 32-year old Donaire. "I'm willing to go out there. I'm willing to fight anywhere."

Undefeated with draws, Quigg has so far proven himself to be one of England's elite boxers. Since winning his title in 2012, he has defended it a total of five times, with three of those victories ending by knockout. 

He holds a record of 30-0-2, with 22 victories by stoppage.
