Boxing-Fernando Montiel vs. Nonito Donaire has Nonito Donaire as a -250 favorite against Fernando Montiel this Saturday evening in Las Vegas for the Bantamweight World Championship.  Bantamweight fighters can be no more than 118 pounds makeing their fights very exciting because of the speed these fighters fight with along with the punching power. Donaire hails from the Philippines. Montiel comes from Mexico. Both Bantamweight brawlers hunger for a knockout victory this Saturday. Donaire hasn’t lost a fight in nine years. He won nine of his last 10 fights by knockout. Montiel hasn’t lost a fight in six years. Eight of his last 10 victories came by knockout. Montiel is only the 5th Mexican fighter to win world titles in five different weight divisions. Donaire, meanwhile, is widely considered one of the top 10 pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

The stakes are high in this match. Both fighters are immensely prideful, each participating in the signature fight of their careers. Donaire and Montiel will be looking to put their stamp on the fight and not wait around. Donaire will flash his superior speed in the early going, showing his power. Montiel might be out of sorts for the first few rounds and could even touch the canvas.  When Donaire starts feeling comfortable that’s when he could find himself in trouble.  If Donaire stays patient and uses his faster feet and hands he should be able to accumulate rounds throughout the fight.  I see this fight going the distance with Donaire winning in a decision to capture the World Batamweight Championship

Be sure to place your wagers on Montiel as soon as possible.  I see the -250 line possibly going up right before the fight begins on Saturday evening.  Most avid boxing fans would agree with my pick of Donaire.  I certainly like the pick at -250 a lot more than if it was -300 or more come fight time.  So be smart and log on to to place a wager on this championship fight as soon as possible.
