Most boxing fans know Rigo is a overhyped amateur an this is nothing but a normal Donaire fight, avoiding the top fighters like Abner an Anselmo Moreno, they barely sold 6000 seats lol, if that being in New York I’m sure they gave half the seats away.

There’s a very good reason this venue saw only 1 boxing match in 100 years — and NO boxing matches in the 20th Century… The configuration of the arena and the fact that it holds so few fans makes it extremely unattractive… Just why it was selected to present a match the magnitude of Donaire-Rigondeaux is a mystery to me. You can’t draw 20,000 live fans for this fight? You need more than 6,000 seats to stage a lot of amateur fights. Can you imagine the Lakers, Heat, Vikings, 49ers, Dodgers, or Yankees playing before 6,000 fans?

It wouldn’t be a surprise if Nonito KO Rigo, everyone knows he has KO power.

I’m not a nonito fan and I’m not a rigo fan, I am a boxing fan. With that said, I’m going to go on record and say that nonito will win either by A surprise Ko out of the blue or unanimous decision. Why? As much as I respect and admire Rigo’s abilities, he’s too much of a “thinker” for a guy like nonito, that’s just his style, he takes a methodical approach. This won’t work against nonito, he’s not going to give rigo time to think. He’s going to smell blood right from the start and bring the fight to Rigo’s suspect chin in such an overwhelming way that rigo is going to get KOd in an exchange or get punch shy thus handing over all of the ring generalship to nonito. Rigo is good, but he’s not going to beat nonito. Hopefully I’m wrong and we’ll have one of the more entertaining matchups of the year.

In the kingdom of the blind the one with one eye is the king !! Such is the nature of Rigo’s perceived dominance over the type of opposition he had. He will now be facing an opponent with 20/20 vision in both eyes with speed, power in both hands and one of the most intuitive fighter in modern times. Rigo is good but not good enough – The Filipino Flash by KO or UD depending in how the cuban prefers to fight.

I beleive ring skills will win this fight and Rigo is the most skilled bantamweight I have ever seen in my life!!!

RIGONDEAUX ALL THE WAY!!!

Rigondeaux will do to Donaire what no one has done. He will neutralize his power and out box and use beautiful movement and defense to make Donaire look one dimensional. Don’t be surprised when Rigondeaux drops Donaire along the way.

After seeing Donaire keep telling him to look him in the eye makes me think Donaire thinks to much of himself to start trash talking or trying to intimidate him but then on the other hand is Rigo a little nervous not wanting to look at Donaire in his eyes. Not sure how he normally is in the standoff

I gotta say, I’m a little, on the fence for this fight. My fight experience tells me that Donaire will break down Rigondeaux, or even catch with something early to win end the fight. My technical admiration tells me that Rigondeaux will out smart, and keep Donaire from setting his feet, and then go on to land impressive counters. I think I’ll enjoy this one, and watch the better man win… But, right now I’m leaning towards the favorite, Donaire.

If you put the TNT explosive power of Nonito together with Rigo’s suspect chin, there’s only one possible outcome for this fight…

The Low Blow !

LOOK IN tO mY EYES ! Donaire deserves to be the favorite going in to this bout though my GUT tells me Rigondeaux will smoke Nonito in 3 could end up much like Hagler Hearns did
