Who's Next for Nonito Donaire Jr.?

After his convincing win over Puerto Rico's Wilfredo Vasquez Jr., who should Nonito Donaire Jr. face for his next fight? Donaire has stated countless times that he will be staying at the super bantamweight division (122 pounds). His fight with Vasquez last Sunday was his first fight in this division. He also won the WBO super bantamweight belt which Jorge Arce vacated when he went down to bantamweight several months back.

Right now, the names that are mentioned the most as possible opponents for Donaire are Toshiaki Nishioka, Guillermo Rigondeaux, and Jorge Arce. Nishioka is the current WBC super bantamweight champion. Guillermo Rigondeaux is the current WBA super bantamweight champion. Jorge Arce, on the other hand, is the WBO bantamweight (118 pounds) champion. Donaire's next opponent will likely be one of these three.
