Default Re: Why Guillermo Rigondeaux beats Nonito Donaire

And BBallchump, you use a video of a punch landed on Pac 2008 and 2011 but why??
That is one punch its not like Pac was getting caught with it every time it is thrown
It's not to diss Pacquiao. It was just the best gif I could find to demonstrate my point that the quickest point from point A to B is a line.

If you think Donaire is patient enough then you can go on thinking that. I just don't know if he will. If he fights him like he did Nishioka, then he has a very good chance of beating Rigo. Idk if he will though

still, it's winnable for donaire because of his speed and power but i see a UD victory for Rigo or a nasty body shot KO.
yeah good point. He has the Amir Khan in him trying to please the crowd too much.

it could very well be true. I'm only making a best guess based off of what I've seen from both guys and their tendencies.

I actually could see Rigo getting caught leading with a left to the body like this
I don't see him having to lead much in this fight though
