Default Guillermo Rigondeaux's slow rehearsing punches.

Why does he do this when he fights? It seems really effective, was wondering if someone could explain the technicalities and reason behind it. It's very unique.

I believe he uses it as a feint. It throws his opponent off. He puts the right hand out there very slowly, shoots a regular jab and then BOOM, hits you with a quick right.

*Left
He's a southpaw.
I think he does it as a balance thing as well to make sure he's not leaning too far in any direction. Just practising the feel and the timing of the punch while visualising the real thing, like Steve Nash on the free throw line.

Because he's Rigondeaux and he can get away with it against guys like Kennedy because of the gulf in class.

He does it several times, had a quick skim through and he does it at 7:55 and 19:10. Whole fight is worth watching though, because of the performance.

I love doing this (learned it from watching Rigo's early fights). I don't fully understand the hows and whys, but it WORKS. Keep in mind he's doing this stuff to good fighters--try it against amateurs who arent used to seeing that stuff and it produces results.

Works best in opposite stances. The initial punch (lead hook or uppercut) is HARD, and it off-balances the opponent even if it's blocked. The followup is a straight punch which usually lands because the first punch produces a reaction.

Seems like an invitation from Rigo. He seems to want his opponent to counter so he can then explode with a counter himself. Does it at a perfect distance so he has room to find good angles.

He's class

It looks like he does it to measure range & like Muldoon said he was more or less playing with Kennedy

I've never seen anything like this before. Rigo is unique!

I think you are right. Looks like hes just baiting his opponant to throw a punch so he can throw a quick counter back.
