[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]Nonito Donaire, the Filipino-
American superstar who was named the Boxing Writers Association of America 2012 Fighter of the Year, isn't sure if he will go through with his April 13 fight in NYC, at Radio City Music Hall, against Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux.
Donaire took to Facebook to talk about his unwillingness to fight Rigondeaux if his challenger doesn't jump through the same strict PED-testing hoops that he will.
Donaire committed in June 2012 to year-round testing, to be done by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA), in the hope that he and his foes will be on the same, level playing field in the ring.
Here is the statement Donaire posted on Facebook on Tuesday afternoon:
I want you guys to hear it from me first. I am NOT going to NYC for the presser this Thursday bc Rigo is backing off his agreement to VADA drug testing. Rigo's team verbally agreed to VADA testing both online and in negotiations. But now that the contract to start testing is in front of them, they are finding every excuse not to sign and delay the start of the testing. I have NOT signed my fight contract yet to fight him so I have no obligation to fight ONLY HIM. It disappoints me that top fighters these days run from everything that will hold professional boxing integrity to its highest standard. I will be looking into other opponents with my manager, Cameron Dunkin immediately.

The fight is still going ahead...Rigondeaux & his team released a statement agreeing to VADA testing.

Hope he signs and takes the test, I personally don't think he's doping but I do believe that Nonito's camp is looking to create some controversy.
When you think about it;
1. Rigondeaux hasn't jumped numerous divisions and carried his speed and power like Pac, Rigo was 54kg at the 2000 Olympics.
2. He spent the best part of a decade as the top am in the world and never failed a drug test, including Olympic style. Also to my knowledge he's never failed one as a pro.
3. The argument comes up that now he has power that he didn't have before so therefore he is using PED's, but I remember seeing him fight many times in the amateurs and knocking the top am's in the world out with big Green Hill gloves and headgear on.

Of course he's not doping and there's no reason to suspect him of it. It's just something Donaire has thrown in at the last second to try and avoid fighting Rigo. Rigo is going to sign the VADA agreement and then I expect Donaire to come up with something else.

just saw the face-off pics in the general forum, and donaire is much bigger than rigo.
donaire did have more clothes on under his jacket, but still, he looks alot bigger.

Donaire is being a bitch lately, rigo is his toughest test to date and I get the feeling he is worried
