Donaire can beat almost everyone in the appropriate weight class… Rigondeaux shocked me with how he consistently outquicked the normally VERY fast Donaire… Nothing tells the story like the actual RING….

“Freddie Roach only developed boxers who already had world class potential”

Developing is teaching. The only way a boxer can develop is if he is being taught how to be a better boxer.

good trainers don’t always make champions, but they do make contenders out of ordinary fighters….give almost any trainer someone that’s already a champion or a potentionally great fighter and he’ll look like a great trainer…Cotto’s uncle isn’t a great trainer but he had a great fighter that made him look good…..Roberto Garcia was a real good fighter that didn’t have the physical attributes of a great fighter but still reached the top…..he IS a good trainer, just as good as anyone else out there at this day and age….

It was reported that Donaire is now resuming year-round random PED testing with VADA. So he gets props for that, since he’s the only one I’m aware of doing that. Even Mayweather who’s obv been quite vocal about testing doesn’t do it year round, he only does it during camp.

WHAT!?!

Donaire got a lucky punch against Vic in his victory. He knew it and that is why he ducked a rematch until now. Now Vic is older and has showed signs of deteriorating Donaire feels this will be an easy win to get back on the radar. Now you watch Vic get up for this fight. He can avenge a defeat here and will be prepared to go out on his shield. Donaire has lost his ‘eye of the tiger’ and is going to have his career finished with this upcoming defeat at the hands of the old deteriorating Darchinyan.

Hidalgo.., It wasn’t a gift.. At that point in time Hopkins wanted to do a Trinidad like number on Oscar and KO him late — like the 12th.

I bet he thought, “Crap! He’s not getting up.” … You’re right. I doubt if Oscar was badly hurt like he put on… Good acting job though. Beating the canvas with his fist in frustration sold the KO.

Once upon a time many moons ago as I was making my way home from a tranny porn convention I saw a dog limping by the side of the road. It was of medium size and I’m not sure what breed it may have been, it might have even been a mutt, but it became clear to me very quickly that this poor little pooch had been struck by a car and was in quite some distress. One of its hind legs appeared to be badly broken and it was bleeding profusely from its @nus. Without so much as a second’s thought I immediately made my way over to it and grabbed it by the nape of its neck with one hand, obviously to prevent it from trying to bite me, and I grabbed myself a good thick tuft of fur at the base of its back with the other and violently forced it downward and quickly lowered myself down to straddle its torso in between my knees so that it was laying flat on it’s stomach completely under my control and unable to escape or attack. I then pulled its head upwards to the point where it was almost looking directly in my eyes, placed my arm under its throat and round towards the other side until I had it in a headlock and violently twisted it with all my might until I heard the loud crack of its neck breaking. I then turned it’s lifeless limp body onto its back, grabbed its hind legs with either hand, and then I thrust my face towards its @nus, placed my lips around its sphincter and I began to suck every droplet of the burgundy coloured life-giving bloody magic sauce out of it like a thirsty horse at a trough.

Tark, I don’t even think it was a medium shot and my money says Hopkins knows or at least suspects that he got a gift. When Oscar went down Emanuel Steward said something like “It didn’t look like that hard of a shot.” Then when Oscar was pounding on the floor Manny said, “Well, maybe it was.” LOL! I bet Manny was thinking to himself “WTF?? Oscar quit!”

Posted September 25, 2013 6:34 pm

The De La Hoya fight went exactly like Hopkins predicted it would go… It was a pillow fight/boxing match for several rounds as the 39-year-old Hopkins clued into Oscar’s rhythm and range.. Then as Hopkins stepped up the pressure round by round Oscar started running..

Hopkins studied the De La Hoya-Trinidad fight and expected Oscar to start running and stop throwing at some point… He wasn’t sure the liver shot would keep Oscar down for 10, “It was kind of a medium shot.”

Posted September 25, 2013 4:48 pm 


Hidalgo

Agree. That said, Bhop didn’t need Oscar to quit because he was starting to smash him up. IMO Oscar saw the beating that was about to happen and quit. That pounding the floor nonsense gave it away.”

I agree with you on your comments too, Fight Aficianado. Oscar figured he’d bail before Hopkins embarrassed him, I guess. Thing is, Oscar ended up looking like a fool because he bailed. When a body shot is hard enough to drop you to the canvas, you don’t have enough energy of sense of mind to pound the canvas like–you’re too busy writhing in pain and trying to catch your breath.

“I thought Montiel was good but he was too small for Donaire. As for P4P, no way, he should not of been on anybody P4P list.” – Peej is correct. When appraising PFP we need to consider who in the current PFP the figher beat and Donaire looked good beating some decent guys but nobody top flight. Same applies to Broner. Gullible people throw him in the top 5 PFP and call him the next big thing. Name one fighter he beat that justifies that.

Public Enemy – Montiel is still fighting and he is still winning in his weight class. So he did not end his career at all. So once again Donaire has not ended anybody career. He was much bigger than his opponents for most his career and the time he actually fights someone that is his size he gets beat and then he comes out with an excuse that he never had when he was winning.

One more relevation: How could boxing fans see the “best Nonito ever” when he’s not fighting the best opponent available?

Posted September 25, 2013 8:56 am 


Hidalgo

I meant to say, “Seems weird that a champion of Donaire’s stature and supposed greatness WOULDN’T want to avenge his loss to Rigondeaux.”

Posted September 25, 2013 8:54 am 


Hidalgo

“but these are the same guys who say it’s fine for 172+lb Canelo to fight much smaller guys???”

P.E., trying to take advantage of a boxer’s size has been going on for a long time. Imagine 5’6 Manny Pacquiao stepping into the ring with 6’1 Tommy Hearns. Tommy’s arms were so long he could hit Pacquiao from his stool. Pac would have avoided him like the plague. IMO so would most of the current welterweights–even Mayweather. I agree guys like Canelo and Chavez Jr. should be fighting guys who are their own size, but as long as they make weight at the weigh-in they are fighting legally.

Of course, if the sanctioning bodies as a whole got together and changed the rules regarding weight by limiting fight night weights–and they could if they wanted to–having a good set of skills would obviously be much more important than it is now. I mean, without the size/weight advantage, trainers would have to focus on developing their boxers skills to their maximum. I don’t think that’s happening right now with a lot of fighters. Instead they and their trainers seem to think that their chins or their toughness will make up for the deficit in skills–and this proves to be true often enough–at least the theory of it does.

Posted September 25, 2013 8:52 am 


Hidalgo

What’s the point of this fight? If Nonito wants to make a statement he should go after another champion’s belt–if he’s not going to rematch Rigondeaux. Why aren’t they knocking on Leo Santa Cruz’s door? Go after Kiko Martinez. I mean he has four losses on his record. Seems weird that a champion of Donaire’s stature and supposed greatness would want to avenge his loss to Rigondeaux.

Donaire chased Rigondeaux all night and paid for it. If he had wanted to win, he should have leaned back and tried to make Rigondeaux come to him. It would have been a horrible fight to watch as we know Rigondeaux is very reluctant to initiate action, but he would have had some countering opportunities. Maybe he would have still lost, but he would not have looked so bad…

How did Donaire get dominated? Rigo ran all night then caught Donaire with one to secure the fight. What I notice is the rising of a new philosophy that not getting marked up implies you are DOMINATING the fight. The sweet science DOMINATES again! Is boxing evolving or getting redefined?

Posted September 24, 2013 9:50 pm

PEEJ says.., “Donaire is overrated. Until he can beat someone his size that isn’t old and about to retire then he may prove other wise.”

Come on, give Nonito a break.. He beat Darchinyan when he was young, udefeated, and a highly favored World Champion 28-0.. He punched Montiel out when he was highly respected and not old at all.

You’re disrespecting Rigondeaux by saying Donaire isn’t great.. He is.

Posted September 24, 2013 9:09 pm 


UJelly

Donaire is a good fighter, despite what anyone says… he’s just become somewhat one-dimensional. He is an offensive counter puncher that relies far too heavily on his hooks for counters (and he throws them wide too because he tries to put so much power into them).
Rigo showed that if you take the hook counters away, Donaire is left wanting and struggles to adjust (i.e. he literally just followed Rigo around hoping to time him rather than trying to actually create an opportunity)

Posted September 24, 2013 9:03 pm

I think in terms of technical ability Rigo is right up there with Floyd but no matter what he does in his pro career will never get the props of FMJ the really small guys just ain’t fashionable, also stayed a bit too long in the vest as is the way with Cubans who often never turn . I mean Savon, Stevenson and Kindelan would have been awesome in the pro ranks but we never got to see them.

This pundit says.., “Since Rigo is not available for this fight, who better than Darchinyan?”

Why is Rigondeaux not avialable??? I don’t care for Donaire-Darchinyan.

From my knowledge Rigo doesn’t have a fight scheduled. I’m interested is seeing who he fights next.. He is a very great fighter and fans would love to see him against the best available fighters. He can probably beat anyone out there and only has 12 pro fights.

But who wants to fight him??? It’s an interesting situation for him.

I hope Darch does win.

Posted September 24, 2013 3:55 pm 


te tumbo

the primary reason for Donaire’s stock to plummet was not his loss (which was convincing but hardly “devastating”), but rather the arrogant and one-dimensional fight-plan that facilitated it. i’ll concede that knocking Rigondeaux’s block off with a display of pro-caliber “shock and awe” was my preference but where was the “Plan B” when it became apparent that Rigondeaux was not particularly vulnerable to this strategy? it appeared as if Nonito was a one-trick pony without the capacity to adjust, which i don’t think is true. Donaire can Punch Aaand Box. he just needs to remember to bring both toolkits with him into the ring next time he faces a polished boxer like Rigondeaux who also (and unexpectedly) displayed great poise in the face of Donaire’s firepower. also, Nonito shouldn’t underestimate Darchinyan. this is THEE redemption bout of his career. his slide began with his loss to Donaire and a convincing win would put him back in contention. IMO, this is an interesting matchup.
