Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire Jr. declared himself "ready to go" ahead of his WBC bantamweight title clash against reigning champion Nordine Oubaali of France this weekend.
The Filipino-American, who has held multiple titles in four weight classes, is due to meet Oubaali on Saturday in Carson, California (Sunday, Manila time).
He posted a picture of himself wearing a WBC belt on Facebook, "claiming" the title.
"Happy Monday! Y'all ready for fight week and Saturday? I know I am," he said, using the hashtags #AndTheNew #wbc #wbcchampion.
Donaire said Oubaali is just one of his assignments as he plans to clean out the bantamweight class and become the undisputed champion.
It is a tall order for the 38 year old, but Donaire believes he can do it.
“I have a dream which is to be the undisputed bantamweight champion, and at 38 years old I think I am capable of doing it. The first step is on May 29 against Nordine Oubaali, a good fighter, but he's never faced an opponent like me, and then we are definitely going to pursue a rematch with (Naoya) Inoue and gather the rest of the belts,” Donaire said in a Boxing Scene report.
