evil vic ruined nonito. nonito will never be the samePosted November 11, 2013 6:53 pm
Amigo TARK, Do you really believe it when you say that “the Rigondeux vs Nonito rematch is the biggest fight in years”? Really? I honestly believe that you’re practically all alone on this one, especially after another VERY Donaire sub-par performance. As a matter of fact, the only one super enthusiastic about Donaire’s win are you. I’m sure Robert Garcia and HBO were the MOST WORRIED and then the HAPPIEST at the conclusion, for obvious reasons. We’re miles apart here, amigo. With all due respects but… how OVERLY-impressed have you been with Nonito’s in 5 of his seven outtings, if we exclude the aged ‘Travieso’ & aged Toshiaki encounters? Maybe I missed something. I surely wasn’t, part of the reasons I picked Rigo to beat him then and will, in all likelihood, do it again, should they meet again.Posted November 11, 2013 10:23 am
EZ E.., I don’t think you can take the glamour out of beating a 4-Division World Champion who hasn’t been beaten in 12 years. That’s what Rigo accomplished.
Duran quit against Leonard.. Hearns was dehydrated and ran out of gas while being ahead on points.. Those wins went on the books for Leonard regardless of how compromised they are.. If you start picking off wins because the opponents weren’t perfect, pretty soon you don’t have any.
The Rigondeaux-Donaire rematch is one of the biggest fights in many years. The 1st fight wasn’t that big because fans didn’t know how good Rigo is.Posted November 10, 2013 10:44 pm
TARK, I picked Donaire but did say that Darch would give Nonito a harder time than most expected. I was rooting for Vic and was actually glad that he was making my pick all wrong. As for Nonito… ya know Tark, it kind’a seems he’s going the Juanma route. Makes me now wonder which Nonito did Rigo actually school?? For some reason it kind’a takes some of the glamour out of Rigo’s win, if you get where I’m coming from. All in all, he looked bad. Peace!Posted November 10, 2013 8:57 pm
This pundit says.., “The Filipino icon has always had problems with a fighter who has a little bit the style of Manny Pacquiao.”
Rigno and Vic have little in common with Pacman other than being southpaws.
Rigo is more deliberate and more of a counterpuncher.. He draws a lead and gets you out of position before he throws. He took Donaire’s jab away and made him lead with rights and left hooks.. He outlanded Donaire by a very wide margin and for the most part … and stayed out of exchanges for the most part. He’s a master boxer.
Darchinyan has a weak jab and weak right hook. He paws with his jab and loads straight lefts. Against anyone with a game he’s pretty limited.. He’s basically a bully who beats you down with big left hands.Posted November 10, 2013 5:28 pm
Donaire has no business fighting Rigo ever. Donaire will not get better. Rigo wipes him out if they fight.Posted November 10, 2013 2:58 pm
Donaire wife is fken annoying. Since she got her mouth in the middle of his boxing career. Everything began to go down that is why this idiots need to keep their personal lifes away from boxing. But everyone wants to be a celebrity!!!!Posted November 10, 2013 2:11 pm
Rigo will destroy this clown in a rematch. He is just not the next Pacquiao.Posted November 10, 2013 2:07 pm
Vic is a homo and got beat like a homo. Donaire needs to walk away before he gets embarrassed again. He is overrated. He looked confused and doubtful on his boxing abilities. His heart us just not there for boxing.Posted November 10, 2013 2:04 pm
It seems clear that Donaire can fight but is not really a boxer, he had to fight to win last night. His boxing needs work he rely solely on his speed and does not set his offense up. If he watches Mikey Garcia and learn some of his skill Donaire will be a tough cookie to crack. For now he should stay away from Rigo, Rigo can box and he can fight.Posted November 10, 2013 12:40 pm
The one-punch wonder will not beat Rigondeaux in a rematch. He doesn’t have the skill or tools to do it.Posted November 10, 2013 12:32 pm
Vic highlighted the gaps and mental flaws in an uncertain Donaire’s remaining fighting ability but is far from being a flawless fighter himself and it cost him, Again. otherwise, he was commanding this bout with superior timing and boxing skills. Donaire defaulted to his KO-seeking fight-profile, which was ultimately a successful gamble on his part. it exposed the primary flaw in Darchinyan’s fight-game: he just can’t seem to avoid the left-hand counter. I was rooting for Darchinyan but it’s the end of the primetime road for him now and one thing is now absolutely clear: Donaire will go down as the better fighter than Darchinyan.Posted November 10, 2013 12:10 pm
No he has not been a champ at all, he has only held titles, winning them off of old, small fighters that are retired or about to retire. He will never be the champ in a single division and will probably head back on that senior tour.Posted November 10, 2013 12:02 pm
THE REAL AMERICAN OAK
Donaire has been a great champ. Maybe a wake up call has been received yet again so he can rededicate himself.Posted November 10, 2013 11:47 am
There was no saving the best for last. He was clearly getting beat by Vic. Donaire is a highly overrated fighter. He won’t be stepping back in with Rigo and it looks like there was a reason that Top Rank did not want to accept that contract from Golden Boy for a Mares fight.Posted November 10, 2013 10:47 am
