Rigondeaux is the greatest amateur boxer in fistic history… He hasn’t lost in over 200 fights… Donaire is also one of the greatest boxers in history … the best Filipino ever.

I see a bloody close battle — with a fiercely contested war waged in the final 3 rounds in FOTY type action … and utter silence before the verdict is announced in Donaire‚Äôs favor.

Rigo—and every Cuban on Earth—will not be happy campers. That’s how close it will be. The deal is, Rigondeaux doesn’t have the pro experience to beat Donaire yet.

The author MUST say, extraordinary fighter becomes ordinary when they fight Donaire. Deal it with man don’t get so emotional against Donaire putting down all his opponents.

Stark, I really think this is going to be an anticlimax I don’t see Rigo finishing the fight.. He is just not on Donaires level

SRED – I think your seriously mistaken. Just looking at someone like Rigo box & u know this guy is a star. This is a toss up

Please let this happen!!

Donaire can’t take body shots but he has not lost a fight since God knows when?? he is a 4 weight Champion and carving out a SERIOUS HOF trajectory career meanwhile this guy (Rigo) is living off his Olympic accomplishements….Rigo never faced anyone like this I just wated Rico Ramos lose to ANOTHER guy…. Hes outta his league with Nonito but let him earn the payday

Donaire can’t take body shots. His only true weapon is his power-packed left and Rigondeaux is aware of that. Rigondeaux will knock him out with his body shots.

Rigo is gonna get DUSTED he is in the ring with a TRUE elite fighter and its not gonna be pretty or feel like one of his Olympic matches…Mares would be another EASY night for Donaire but its pointless to wax on about two promotional entities that were some how able to scuttle the biggest fight in the history of the sport…

Contest of two sweet scientists. Donaire will have the edge, because of his superior variability. His offensive potential is versatile and his jab will keep Rigo away all night. Even if the left hook doesn’t connect, it will be a rather wide UD for the Flash! Excellent fight, nevertheless!

I’ll believe it when I see it. Arum does nothing but talk crap.

Rigo to cut nonito up head and body ….

I hope so. Lopez-Gamboa, Pacquiao-Mayweather never happen.

donaire ko win in 5 rds. too expolsive and too much skill. more experienceto go with it too. all around better fighter in my eyes

Hopefully this fight happens….finally Donaire will shut this foo’s mouth. Donaire via KO within 7

Watch Rigo fold like a deckchair when The Flash connects on his chin, mark my words folks,up till that happens a good match tha.

Donaire wins by KO

Posted January 17, 2013 5:44 pm 


it is good to see that Bob Arum wants to make the fight now,instead of playing games like this or that particular fighter is not popular enough yet with the public. give the fans what they want.

Poor Rigo

Posted January 17, 2013 5:03 pm 


i hope this really happens

Posted January 17, 2013 4:53 pm 


Donaire knocks Rigo out cold…that fight is a mismatch; now, Mares is a different proposition. Mares takes Nonito’s heart & rough’im up for a wide UD.
