YES he DOES. He’s TOO QUICK for Mikey. After SKILLS, and Boxing IQ, SPEED is the most important factor.Posted December 8, 2013 12:26 am
Rigo doesn’t beat Mikey. That’s aburd. Mikey would knock Nonito out and beat Rigo’s ass over 12. Lomachenko beats Rigo too in 3 or 4 fights. That will be interesting to watch.Posted December 7, 2013 8:53 pm
I note that you agree with ME on MY pick. Smart man.Posted December 7, 2013 7:04 pm
king Kong as good as a fight as was the Donaire fight.Posted December 7, 2013 6:38 pm
I say Rigo by tko. Note the ‘T’ pleasePosted December 7, 2013 5:57 pm
Nope. I’m the biggest TRUTH teller and FACT stater though. Rigo by stoppage.Posted December 7, 2013 5:52 pm
Nope you’re the biggest bull sh! tter on ESBPosted December 7, 2013 5:46 pm
junior-Nope. I’m a TRUTH teller and a FACT stater.Posted December 7, 2013 5:40 pm
Rigo is TOO quick and TOO SKILLED for Mikey. Mikey would beat Pac though and every other Welter and under Fighter besides Floyd and Rigo.Posted December 7, 2013 5:40 pm
I think agbeko will make it a fight but rigo’s skill will shine once again. I’d like to see rigo vs Mikey GarciaPosted December 7, 2013 5:34 pm
Haha you are a clown Boxtra. The resident r3tardPosted December 7, 2013 5:25 pm
Shocked and saddened to hear that South African boxer Baby Jake Matlala has passed away at only 51 years old. What great little fighter he was! Only 4 feet 9 inches tall (the shortest boxer to ever win a world title) I used to call him the mini Marvin Hagler. Rest in peace Jake, you were a great little fighter.Posted December 7, 2013 5:18 pm
Im not cuban but… if Rigondeux was a few inches taller and could carry 20more pounds im 100==/ sure he wd beat floyd he has skills defense and a lot of power the only think he needs to b more popular is that he has to b agrgresive n do some dirty talk about ithers boxers especially the ones he wnts to facePosted December 7, 2013 5:12 pm
junior-Well you need to take a PAYING ATTENTION class. I SAID that IF Rigo followed MY advice instead of following through with what he SAID he would DO in lead UP to the Fight he would WIN. He followed MY advice and he WON just as I predicted. SO IF you learned how to pay attention better you would have known that I was CORRECT….and I’ll be CORRECT once again tonight.Posted December 7, 2013 5:03 pm
Tark – what I don’t get is boxers who have enough to live on, continuing. Opposed to Those who really need that $ having little choice. I guess it comes down to being content with what you have.Posted December 7, 2013 4:52 pm
Rigondeaux is 33 years old and very short. It doesn’t matter. He’s one of the most skillful boxers on the planet. If he wants, he could still be boxing in 8 years without ever being stopped.
I don’t expect him to fight that long. Taking head punches is something you get tired of. Everyone gets hit, Pep, Tunney, Johnson, Jofre, Sanchez, Loughran, Charles, Robinson, Napoles, Holmes, Leonard, Hopkins, Jones, Mayweather, Rigondeaux, everybody. Nobody likes getting hit.
Most main event boxers take punches well until about 37. After that you get steadily easier to hit. The money keeps you going; especially compared to construction, driving a truck, fixing cars, plumbing, security guarding, maintenance work, accounting, teaching, librarian, sales, bar tending, real estate, police work, and most jobs ex-boxers get.
Regular paychecks are a downer; so if a promoter calls and says, “I know you’re retired—but we’re offering 60,000 for 10 rounds. Don’t give me an answer now—I’ll call you back tomorrow at the same time.” … “Hold on. How about training expenses?” … “Okay, I can go 12,000 for training expenses upfront—and 2,000 for hotel, parking, and meals. That’s a 74,000 package for 10 rounds, only if I get your answer right now.” … That’s why guys keep fighting even when they start losing.Posted December 7, 2013 4:29 pm
RIGO BY KO,10TH,LARA BY TKO 11TH.Posted December 7, 2013 4:25 pm
Boxtra, the last tip of yours I paid any attention to was Donaire vs Rigo. You had Donaire by KO and said Rigos amateur experience counted for nothing! Howd that work out for ya?Posted December 7, 2013 4:23 pm
largo-The last person that bet ME ended UP retiring from ESB for the rest of his LIFE. I can’t run ALL of the posters into retirement I have to keep a few around SO I’ll just put MY prediction out there and let you believe it or not. You will have no choice but to believe it after the Fight.Posted December 7, 2013 4:13 pm
ABBA the horse.
Boxtradamus is right, Rigo will win by stoppage. He’s so far ahead in boxing ability it will be a joke to watch. Agbeko’s chances are slim and none, and slim is outta town.
Rigo destroys Agbeko and the fight is stopped to save Agbeko any more punishment.Posted December 7, 2013 3:42 pm
Agbeko will be totally out classed, he’ll get destroyed by Rigo. it won’t be close at all. Rigo is miles better than Agbeko. Expect Agbeko to take a severe boxing lesson from a master boxer at his best.Posted December 7, 2013 3:36 pm
Rigo wins clearly on points, the guy is a southpaw Mayweather almost untouchable and as a lefty even more difficult to figure out!Posted December 7, 2013 10:49 am
I know a guy who could sh! T 121lbsPosted December 7, 2013 7:58 am
Agbeko by KO, round 3. You heard it here first.Posted December 7, 2013 5:49 am
kingkong will make it difficult for Rigo ……..a more competitive fight than with Nonito …….Posted December 7, 2013 4:58 am
Rigondeaux, by TKO.Posted December 7, 2013 3:12 am
Rigo by UD…Posted December 7, 2013 2:15 am
Rigo wouldn’t stop Agbeko with a shotgun…by stoppage??? hahahahaha. Boxtra, i’ll be expecting you to blame an impostor for that sorry post. Stoppage? hahahahaha.Posted December 7, 2013 1:51 am
“Rigo by SURGICAL stoppage”…Boxtra, you wanna bet?Posted December 7, 2013 1:25 am
@james toney, hahahahahahaha…Posted December 7, 2013 1:21 am
watch out for history joe Agbeko is going to win nothing is imposible stay blessPosted December 7, 2013 1:07 am
Between HBO and showtime we get 7 fights on Saturday night, and the winners are us! LolPosted December 6, 2013 9:31 pm
Good, someone finally made weight without incident. Obv Rigo wins a UD. Ironic we have these results before Judah-Paulie which was supposedly lives treamed here.Posted December 6, 2013 9:02 pm
Rigo will lose! Too old and not much pro experience plus he beat my boy donaiere.Posted December 6, 2013 7:17 pm
Never SEEN Tapia SO I can’t speak on that one but Rigo will WIN by stoppage. Agbeko says that he’s bringing the WAR to Rigo which will get him SLICED, DICED, and even MINCED. Rigo by SURGICAL stoppage.Posted December 6, 2013 6:51 pm
good night to stay home and watch boxing. i got tapia and the cuban. i could care less about the other fight.Posted December 6, 2013 6:14 pm
