Junior featherweight titlists Nonito Donaire and Jeffrey Mathebula will both make their first defenses Saturday in Carson, Calif. -- against each other. Donaire hopes to grab a strong foothold in what he plans to be a long climb through boxing's lower weight classes, but Mathebula's size and style present a unique challenge that have prompted some to claim that the South African is being overlooked. For more on the unification bout from ESPN.com's Dan Rafael, see the video above.
