Does Arum actually make 50/50 fights though? Maybe he needs to do this for Donaire as there is no De la Hoya fight for him. Maybe he's following the Pacquaio route by putting him in tough and making his name that way (just like Pac did with Morales/Barerra/Marquez)
Yeah it would be a strange but nice idea to give a big fight to the people out there.
This fight 8 months ago looked unlikely, But i wonder if Arum sees this as the fight to cash in on asap after all Gamboa vs Lopez was lost due to it being dragged out in hope they could make it a bigger fight. Maybe he's learned a lesson.
I think also Donaire's recent performances and Rigo's not so great displays may sway him into going for it. As you say he doesn't have a ODLH fight..

Interesting comment Billy, I know your busy with Ricky's prep etc but would like to know your thoughts on the fight and why Rigo wins by looks in convincing fashion going off your comment. I take it your not that fussed by Nonito?/.
Thanks in advance.
