But at the end of the day, I highly doubt that Donaire had any say on what card Rigo would end up on.

I think Arum is just making a smart business decision in stacking this card with two, undefeated, gold medalist cuban fighters.

Because Rigo has no right hook.

In so far as Donaire vs Rigo, I would like to see that fight. But if you're a fan of Rigo, it would probably be in his best interest to get more experience.

It would make a better fight, but if you want to see him get knocked out real fast, then sure...

It doesn't matter to me.
Im indeed Rigo's fan, its why i want to see him fight the best.
how he manage his right hook or how does he avoid being KO is Rigo's problem. My deal is enjoy a good fight.

I do like Pacquaio. I guess you could call me a Pactard, but that doesn't have anything to do with Rigo or Donaire.

Even if I like Pacquaio, I can see how the demand for another fight with Marquez may be low.

And I'm sure Arum sees it the same way, which is why he's trying to stack this card.

Nonito has been shown up as a crybaby diva in the past, saying he should be co-featuring with Pacquiao.

He then signed with GBP and Bob Arum said he'd have him fight Rigondeaux before the contract expires, and guess what.. he renews the contract with Top Rank.

Come on bud, we can all see it.

Okay...well let me ask you this, Has Donaire ever been on a co-feature with Pacquaio?

No...so, that indicates Donaire doesn't always get his way.

Maybe he did cry about this, but I highly doubt that had anything to do with Arum's decision to put Rigo on the Pacquaio card.

Maybe Donaire is ducking Rigo. Either way, I doubt what Donaire thinks or wants had anything to do with Rigo being on Pacquaio's card.

I think this was a business decision to help the numbers in the Pacquaio PPV.

No, the point I was making was, Nonito tries to have more to do with the cards than you might think. He's a diva, period.

Have you ever wondered why he's the only one to say Rigondeaux doesnt deserve the shot?

Because he's not confident of beating Rigo.
Plain and simple.

Rigo wants to turn on the head so Donaire can't duck the questions if he tries all this "hes not worthy of a shot" the crowd will know hes ducking....
So is Rigo officially fighting on the Donaire-Arce card, PC?

Donaire keeps telling us Rigo doesn't deserve to fight him, when everyone in the boxing fraternity is screaming for it to happen.
Look at the long ass road TR took him down to finally get where he is. From Nonito's point of view his statement is perfectly valid. Rigo certainly has been moved along much more quickly.

This tells you how little TR does to promote the fight between this 2
I'm sure there is more money to pay under card fighters with Pac headlining.

I guess if you are going to make shit up, then keep telling the same lie? WTF are you on about? Nonito's contract wasn't up and TR and GBP has a 'no poach' agreement. This went to the arbitrator that has been in place since the debacle of Pac signing two contracts and the arbitrator upheld the TR contract.

TR has plenty of fighters to fill PAC undercard.They already have a large payroll with PAC,Marquez,Gamboa,Vasquez,gesta.Suddenly the unknown " hasn't beaten anybody " comes to stack the card. BS.
Rigo and Donaire the same night was the perfect opportunity.They just don't give 3 shits.Expect Donaire to fight Mijares after Arce.

My guess is Rigo would have to fight for a lot less than he can get on the Pac undercard. The top fighters like Pac gets percentages that are figured after the cost of the card. This keeps the promoter from simply shifting money around. You think Rigo would be willing to fight for considerably less to be on the Donaire undercard?

ESB fans are the same jackasses who think if Floyd doesn't fight Sergio that he is a coward and should have all previous accomplishments annulled.

Donaire will have fought Nishioka, Arce, WV Jr, and Mathebula all in a 12 month span. So shut up about this ducking shit. Do I want him to fight Rigo next? Absolutely. But he literally just fought Nishioka who was far more accomplished and deserving than Rigo is now, so you can't duck someone to fight someone else who is in fact better.
