Donaire handed in his IBF belt a few days prior to defending the WBO title against Toshiaki Nishioka on 13 October. The Ring magazine belt would also be at stake.

The vacant IBF title would eventually be contested by Alejandro Lopez and Jonathan Romero, who both came through official eliminators; Lopez beating Takalani Ndlovu (w pts 12 at the County Coliseum, El Paso, Texas on 27 October) while Romero defeated Efrain Esquivias (w pts 12 at the Chumash Casino, Santa, Ynez, California on 21 September).
