    ONE brilliant fight deserves another and Nonito Donaire Jr., the newly-crowned World Boxing Organization (WBO) super-bantamweight champion, is not one to back out from a great challenge.

    The 33-year-old Filipino said he’s willing to slug it out once more with tough Mexican hombre Cesar Jaurez following their action-packed 12-round title duel over the weekend in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    Donaire came away with a unanimous decision win against the tough-fighting Juarez, who refused to go away until the final bell despite being knocked down twice in the fourth round.

    “I will definitely give him a rematch,” said Donaire in the aftermath of the Fight of the Year candidate. “I’m not taking anything away from him.”

    Juarez, 24, believes Donaire won the match, but not in the way the three judges scored it at 116-110, 116-110, and 117-109.

    “The judges were not fair. It was much closer, like a one or two-point fight,” said the Mexican. “But I do think Donaire won.”

    Juarez was inactive for the entire 2014 and didn’t fight until March of this year when he scored a majority decision over Cesar Seda at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.

    He saw action once more in July against Juan Carlos Sanchez who he beat via unanimous decision in Sinaloa, Mexico before taking the bout against Donaire.

    Juarez (17-4, 13 KOs) said if he prepared longer for Donaire, he could have beaten the ‘Filipino Flash.’

    “If I had more time to train and more experience, I would have won,” said Juarez from Distrito Federal, Mexico.

    Donaire improved his record to 36-3, with 23 KOs and won his fifth world title.
