Nonito Donaire has been a professional fighter for 15 years. Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys China . Jessie Magdaleno has been getting paid to punch for just six years.Donaire is a former fighter of the year (2012) and has won world titles in four weight classes from flyweight to featherweight, five if you include the interim belt he won as a junior bantamweight. He has faced many top opponents (including Fernando Montiel, Vic Darchinyan, Jorge Arce, Toshiaki Nishioka, Omar Narvaez, Moruti Mthlane, Nicholas Walters and Guillermo Rigondeaux), was long considered one of the top 10 fighters in the world pound-for-pound and has more knockouts than Magdaleno has fights. Magdaleno has had only two fights scheduled for at least 10 rounds and never faced an opponent remotely considered even a top 20 contender in his division.But Donaire is also 33 and Magdaleno is a fresh 24-year-old.It is that kind youth versus experience fight on that is on tap as Donaire gets set to defend his junior featherweight world title for the second time when he faces Magdaleno, his mandatory challenger, on Saturday night (Top Rank PPV, 9 ET) on the Manny Pacquiao-Jessie Vargas undercard at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.Donaire (37-3, 24 KOs) was complimentary of Magdaleno but believes his vast experience will carry the day in a fight that many expect will be an exciting battle.Magdaleno is very talented and he has a good amount of speed and a good amount of power, Donaire said. As I looked to study him he has pretty good pop and lateral movement and speed. Im excited to be fighting him. I love the challenge but I think that my experience is going to be a big, key factor.He has never faced anyone who can punch like I do or move like I can. Hes in the big leagues now. I know that Im going to dominate this fight. Hes more of a textbook fighter and easy to read.Countered Magdaleno: Nonito is a great champion. We both have a lot of speed and power but, honestly, I think age will be a big factor in this fight.After losing his featherweight world title by sixth-round stoppage to Nicholas Walters in October 2014, Donaire, of Las Vegas, returned to the junior featherweight division, where he has won four fights in a row, including a vacant junior featherweight belt by hard-fought decision against Cesar Juarez in December. Donaire made his first defense in his native Philippines in April, knocking out Zsolt Bedak in the third round.Magdaleno (23-0, 17 KOs), a southpaw from Las Vegas and the younger brother of longtime lightweight contender Diego Magdaleno, may not have ever faced a quality opponent but he has all the confidence that he will win the 122-pound title.I am going against Nonito, who is smart in the ring and has a dangerous left hook I must deal with, Magdaleno said. A real good, hard shot to the body will take away some of his left hook power. And once he really opens up its better for me to get in big punches. He will be strong for about five rounds then there will be a fade and we will take it over. Hes a tough competitor for sure, but this is my dream fight, not his.It may not be Donaires dream fight, but it will be his first fight under the tutelage of trainer Ismael Salas, who used to train in the powerhouse Cuban amateur system.Donaire had reunited with his father, Nonito Donaire Sr., after a lengthy estrangement for recent bouts, but though the younger Donaire said he and his father remain on good terms, he wanted to return to his Northern California home rather than stay in Las Vegas to train his son.Donaire said Salas has brought a lot to his training camp.My experience with Salas has been great the way he teaches. Its been incredible, said Donaire, who has been with Salas for about 10 weeks. Being here in Vegas Ive seen Salas around the gyms so many times and talked to him. Hes an incredible guy and I decided to try him out. I saw him a few times how he goes about his training. I tried him for a week and I decided from then on this is the trainer who will get me [to] a different level.Magdaleno is equally confident in his own trainer, Manny Robles Jr., whose stable also includes featherweight world titleholder Oscar Valdez (who also defends on the card) as well as light heavyweight contender Vyacheslav Shabranskyy and middleweight prospect Jason Quigley.The fight with Donaire will be Magdalenos first under Robles guidance since parting ways with longtime trainer Joel Diaz.I am only 24 and have of the best trainers in Manny Robles, Magdaleno said.Said Robles: Fighters like a lot of attention, a trainer who cares for him. That was my priority when I began training Jessie for this big title fight against Nonito Donaire. Jessie has done everything weve asked. We pay a lot of attention to him and he has responded with such hard training and dedication.Jessie has sparred for many rounds and he is totally prepared to beat Donaire.In the end it might comes down to the youth versus experience. Perhaps the difference will be in something the trainer picks up on and exhorts the fighter to make an adjustment to. Or it could simply come down to whichever man lands the best big shot.Nonito and Jessie each have one-punch knockout power, Top Rank matchmaker Brad Abdul Goodman said. This could be a one-punch knockout fight but I am not sure who wins it.

OXFORD, Miss. -- After a touchdown-filled, humidity-drenched Southeastern Conference showdown, No. 1 Alabama and coach Nick Saban are still undefeated.Just barely.Weve got coaches getting IVs, weve got players getting IVs, the 64-year-old Saban said on Saturday night before bragging on himself a little. But the old fella doesnt need an IV. Because they dont make `em like they used to.Saban and the Crimson Tide were exhausted after a 48-43 victory over No. 19 Mississippi, which included a stunning comeback after falling into a 24-3 hole late in the second quarter.

Alabama hosts Kent State and Kentucky over the next two weeks.Saban didnt talk about those opponents after the win on Saturday. What he did mention was the one major thing on his mind: Rest.I think we need a little break here, a little recovery, Saban said. This was a tough game. We need to get some of these guys back healthy and get ready for the next game and the improvements we have to make.There are so many lessons to be learned from this game. So many opportunities to teach. Itll be good for our staff and our players.Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts threw for 158 yards and ran for 146 more, but the biggest plays were touchdowns by defensive linemen Jonathan Allen and DaRon Payne andd an 85-yard punt return for a score by Eddie Jackson.

Most performed admirably.We needed just about every guy we had to contribute in some way, Saban said.Alabama managed to get out of the game without any major injuries, though Saban said receiver ArDarius Stewart could miss some time with a sprained knee.Stewart caught four passes for just two yards before leaving the game in the second quarter. Hes caught 13 passes for 205 yards and a team-high three touchdowns this season.Getting Stewart back on the field will be a priority for the Tide. So will fixing some of the problems that caused them to give up 43 points against the Rebels.Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly threw for a career-high 421 yards, three touchdowns and one interception. Saban was particularly bothered by an eight-second stretch of the fourth quarter that saw the Tides lead shrink from 48-30 to 48-43.The Rebels completed two touchdown passes and recovered an onside kick in those eight seconds before Alabama was able to restore order and come out with the win.Weve got to do a much better job on defense not giving up explosive plays, Saban said. We didnt play that bad on defense, but then wed have mental errors, gave up explosive plays and sometimes didnt play the ball very well in the deep part of the field.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP .
