Trout wins by Decision or stoppage.. that’s my prediction.. unless he’s Blatently Robbed.. and we all know that is not out of the question when it comes to these hyped fighters…

My prediction, pre-fight: Fight Aficionado — I feel confident Rigo’s the one who will win. But I doubt he’s letting his hands fly. Guys don’t change their style like that in big fights; when the heat is on they revert to what’s natural. I figure he counter punches Donaire enough to slow his aggression and starts banking a lot of rounds by outboxing him with his sublime skills. Could hurt him a few times in mid to late rounds but it’s a decision win. Posted April 13, 2013 11:55 am

“Can’t put Rigo on the same level as Sugar Ray Robinson with only 12 fights. He has a long long way to go for that” – As usual when a big fight happens, dudes are over estimating Rigo’s PFP status now that he won. Likewise nearly everyone here underestimated his talent before Saturday.

Posted April 16, 2013 7:29 pm 


Lol everyone is quick to jump on the bandwagon. One fight makes you great??? Beat every big name from 122 to 126 and you get my respect.

Posted April 16, 2013 2:35 pm 


come on fellas i’m a big donaire fan but i def appreciated and enjoyed rigo go to work and whoever called that fight boring maybe needs to invest their time into another sport cause if you didn’t appreciate that science i dont believe your a true fan of boxing i believe your a fan of a fighter and so what if rigo didnt make that much money thats what he’s fighting for to build up his status and go after the big fights to put him in position to get paid…..hollatchaboy!

Posted April 16, 2013 11:16 am 


A great win for Rigodeaux, no question, but if he was fighting on one network, and Donaire on another network the same night, I would watch Donaire.

Mad Scientist – Lets see if Abner Mares starts Calling out Rigo for a fight… I’m sure Rigos people will be calling out all of these other guys very soon.. then the excuses will start or Exit Plans out of the 122lb division…

Remember saying Rigo would catch the boxing world by storm a few yrs ago ppl laugh ed & said who?………….. You know that slick cuban that beat your boi nonito “Oh that guy”…..

Matthysse Golvking are the other two underrated & unappreciated fighters they will get their just due as well.

Posted April 16, 2013 4:26 am 


Ha ha. Big al using the he won’t make as money as Donaire because his boy got SCHOOLED! Donaire fought four times last year and made 1/20th what Pac makes in ONE fight? Stupid to make comparisons isn’t it? Now, if you really bring up who makes bank, bring up Money.

Posted April 16, 2013 2:23 am 

Big Al

Rigo won, huh? He’s going to have to fight at least 4-5 times just to make enough money equal what Donaire made in one night on Saturday. It’s the price you pay for stinking out the joint. But it’s okay, because he’s great.

Posted April 16, 2013 12:38 am 


Abner Mares may not avoid challenges, but he promoters do. Mares was supposed to be fighting Donaire but his promoters avoided the challenge, that is why Rigo had to fight him.

Posted April 16, 2013 12:14 am 


Meh. One fight with an elite pro does not make Rigo great. Styles makes fights. He still needs to prove himself.

Posted April 15, 2013 8:30 pm 


Rigo will remian at 122lbs, if he rematches Donaire it will be at 122lbs not 126lbs unless Donaire wins a blet.

Posted April 15, 2013 7:47 pm 


dexter – Boring in the sense that your average/casual boxing fan probably won’t enjoy his fights. Even though I picked Donaire to win, I enjoyed watching Rigo fight, but that doesn’t mean I don’t understand what they mean by “boring”, ‘cause as a boxing fan, I do know what they mean.

Posted April 15, 2013 6:24 pm 


Id pay to watch Rigo fight anyone, boring fight my arse, boring fight if you were a Donaire fanboy, it was pure class

Posted April 15, 2013 5:48 pm 


The Mad Scientist – Lol I couldn’t do anything but applaud the man…he looked RAZOR sharp!! The ONLY thing is he’s not at all “fan friendly”, his style is for the purest, which we all are, but if he wants the big fights and the big checks….he has to start “fighting” a little more.

Posted April 15, 2013 4:55 pm

I wanna see Mares vs Rigo..I have no doubt in my mind Abner would be more effective with his pressure mauling style then Donaire was against the cuban.. I know most would favor Rigo but then again most favored Donaire and we should all know by now that actual fight results only happen inside the ring..war Mares!

Posted April 15, 2013 4:42 pm 


GHOST, I had picked Rigondeaux to beat Donaire a long time ago.

Posted April 15, 2013 4:37 pm 

Public Enemy

The only thing that will beat Rigo at 122lbs will be a lucky shot but based on what I saw that night I don’t see that happening anytime soon.. He’s basically going to own the 122lb weight division for a while.. I Just don’t see anyone at 122lbs that will be able to out box him.. He will only lose by someone landing a lucky shot that rocks him..

Posted April 15, 2013 4:26 pm

Nonitos a young guy doesn’t appear to be living la Vida Loca so he has plenty of time to correct some things and become an even Better Boxer.. like I said, having a pregnant wife ringside is just Crazy. He’s a good guy and he should be able to bounce back and have some more wins an a championship or two.. it all depends on he he deals with this loss? Having his baby should help him refocus and get back on the path to another Championship Belt..

Posted April 15, 2013 4:22 pm 


I like Donaire a lot but I still don’t understand how it was scored so closely. I thought the 12th round was closer to a 10-8 round than the 10th. The knockdown was legitimate, but it came after a clinch where Donaire elbowed Rigo in the throat. The bottom line is Donaire never went to plan B when Plan A failed. He had a pretty good plan A but it was not quite good enough. He was looking to land that big left hook. He was just barley missing Rigo with it. I think it would have been the KO of the year if he had landed any one of those big lift hooks. He kept almost landing it. But almost landing it is not landing it. He should have committed to the jab and if Rigo continued to circle away from the left hook into the path of a straight right hand (which is normally the wrong thing to do) Donaire should have tagged him with it, even if it was not with hard shots. Some fights you just have to win and not try and get the sensational KO.

Posted April 15, 2013 4:17 pm 


public enemy`trust me ,donaire is still my dude i just want not just him but any fighter to admit that hey you were the better fighter this night and keep it moving thats all i appreciate when people give props when its due without watering down a win by the opponent donaire is still def one of my favorites to watch but like titopa was saying rigo has another new fan.what i saw in there was patience ,power n precision,great defence.. i admire a great boxer and rigo falls in that category ,much respect…yezzzir!

Posted April 15, 2013 3:35 pm 


Hecdog – I was talking about this fight, you’ve said it all along that Rigo’s “experience” in the ams would help him in this fight, in my heart I disagreed, but I think mentally I maybe have agreed with you…..this was all on a subconscious level perhaps, I never wanted to give Rigo the respect he deserved (apparently), and for that, I was proved WRONG! It happens, like you said, but it sucks lol But hey, I know have someone to really look forward to watching, Rigo!

Posted April 15, 2013 3:11 pm

The Big problem for Nonito is that if he moves up to 126 or 130 he will be facing some seriously dangerous guys who may have as much pop as he does or even more!

i love watching donaire fight and felt like he met his match on saturday night and it left a bad taste in my mouth that he couldnt of just left it at rigo was a better fighter tonight,instead he went into a # of excuses,dont get me wrong donaire is still my dude but Rigo deserves some respect and big fights for his showing, you gotta love this sport…yezzir!

Posted April 15, 2013 2:11 pm 


Donaire didnt fight like a p4p fighter because he was never a p4p fighter

Posted April 15, 2013 1:56 pm 


Titopa, that’s one thing about boxing fans, we sometimes bet with our hearts instead of our heads. We have our favorites, and sometimes it clouds our views. You never know what happens in the ring until they fight, but I do have my favorites. Sometimes we’re right, and sometimes we’re wrong.

Posted April 15, 2013 1:30 pm 


Titopa, thanks for the props my friend. Ghost, not quite sure what you’re talking about. Are you talking about the Donaire vs Rigondeaux fight that I had picked awhile ago or another one? As far as Mares vs Rigondeaux goes, I would have to take Rigondeaux to thoroughly beat and dismantle Mares because of their styles, and the tools both guys have, but more importantly IMO is their hand and foot speed. Mares would have problems with Rigondeauxs speed, tactical boxing, movement and the defense he possess. And I like Mares a lot. He is skilled, and brings a heart of a lion, but Rigondeaux is on another level, and his hunger is what drives him. Always take the boxer over the puncher. Mares is smaller than Donaire, which would also work to Rigondeauxs favor. I saw their fight in the amateurs, and it wasn’t close. Rigondeaux will pick him apart. And I hope the amateur back ground stuff has been put to rest.

Posted April 15, 2013 1:24 pm 


Saying “Rigo took my advice and used a defense to win” is like saying, “Rigo took my advice to win and he won” LOL Of course NOT getting hit by someone like Donaire is gonna help you win, but you also have to LAND and he did that too, can’t do one and not the other against Donaire and win, you MUST to BOTH. Drrrr!

Hey Fred Cass, what’s up with you? Do you think that everyone who picked Donaire to win will no longer be able to cope with life? Only one certain person whose name I won’t mention–but it begins with a “B”–deserves to be lambasted by everyone because he’s such a conceited, narcissistic, a-hole, who thinks he’s some kind of boxing prophet–and he picked Donaire to win! Other than him, so what. Ever been to the race track? Horses race on, Gamblers gamble on. Congrats to Rigo, but it’s no sweat off most our backs. We were just wrong. We won’t be having lobotomies.

Posted April 15, 2013 12:03 pm 


“A brilliant tactical display of boxing, counter punching and ring generalship.” Hecdog, Rigo’s speed of foot and hand was downright amazing. I cannot believe how quickly he moved from side to side, forward and back. And that sneaky uppercut of his is downright dangerous. But what really hurt Donaire most was Rigo’s power. It was clear that Donaire did not expect such hurtful punches from Rigo. I mean, look how Nonito held his eye for the last two rounds of the fight. One punch did that. I’ve never seen Donaire hurt so badly by one punch.

Posted April 15, 2013 11:59 am 


Well, there’s John, de Leon, and Garcia waiting for Rigo at 126. Or Rigo could just clear out the 122 lbs division–it wouldn’t be hard at all for him what with Quigg and the other Latino–sorry can’t remember his name. Anyone know what Rigo weighed going into his fight with Donaire?

Posted April 15, 2013 11:55 am 


hecdog – Props to you my friend, you’ve been saying it all along…you saw something I didn’t, I may have been a bit biased ’cause of my love for Donaire, which didn’t really let me see what I should’ve. But either way, congrats to Rigo, what a fighter! He made a fan out of me, for sure.

I am baffled by the criticisms Rigo recieved and it tells me that the true art of boxing is dying. Fighters like PEP and even more recently Whitaker were revered for their skills and boxing abiity but are now called runners or boring by the people who do not really understand boxing. As somone who has boxed a bit myself I found the Cuban’s display of footwork and punch picking a marvel and Nonito’s obvious nervousness tells me that he can dig a bit as well.

Also, just for the record I like Nonito, not a loud mouth or a south of the border cheater stuffing his gloves with breaks or taking steriods.. takes random blood tests year round and appears to be a good guy.. but I have always seen him as one dimensional and vs a true Boxing Elite he’d have trouble.. and as we’ve seen that was the case.. He’ll bounce back and have some more good wins but not against Rigo… Rigo has his number…

As of 9:34 PEEJ is taken off the loser list – PEEJ wrote in a former post. – “Do aired comp has been subpar. I really see no difference when he fought that undefeated guy like 5 fights ago to his last fight with Arce. The only question is can Rigo take his punch or is Rifo good enough to compete because Rigis comp hasn’t been stellar. I can’t really pick a winner, I think it’s a 50/50 fight”

By this account PEEJ did not pick a winner or loser in this fight. Therefore PEEJ as of 9:36Pm 4/14/13 is off the loser list.

Robert Jackson says, “Guillermo Rigodeaux 2-time Olympic gold medalist and now unified WBA/WBO Super Bantamweight champion has a lot more fish to fry to be considered great in the professional ranks.”

You’re kidding… Rigondeaux is great right now. He’s won several world title fights and mastered one of the best boxer-punchers in the world. He made Donaire look terrible. In the professional ranks or anywhere else — Rigo is great.

Can he do a lot more? Yes, of course. But how many times does a guy with 11 professional fights who also has a world title and title defenses under his belt, beat a great fighter with such ease that he amazes some of the top boxing experts in the world? Actually it’s never happened before.

A brilliant tactical display of boxing, counter punching and ring generalship. He looked like a young Sweet Pea Whitaker, but more explosive. Rigondeaux carries more power than people think. He toyed with Donaire. Mares doesn’t want to get anywhere near this Super Star. Mares would get picked apart and dismantled if he chooses to fight Rigondeaux.

Any fighter that stands right in front of GGG, Donaire, WILL LOSE!! If you use angles, footwork and positioning those guys can be easily beaten – that’s what Rigo did to Donaire. A good fighter would’ve cut off the ring on Rigondeaux and went to his body to take his legs away and then walk him down and take him out!
