only difference is Donair will be up against a fighter that is far more advanced counter puncher than anyone Donaire has faced and has punching power in both hands.
In Technical battle of boxing skill, i feel Donaire is no match for Rigondeaux. To win this fight Donaire is going to have to go into this fight with the intention of being ruff, being more durable, and taking Rigondeaux to the later rounds and test his ability in deep water..
But what Donaire can not do is stand by and wait for opportunity and try and box a master boxer. Against Rigondeaux, he will lose that match every time IMO.
