Default Re: Rigo vs Abeko

I give Agbeko a better chance to beat Rigo than Donaire.

Rigo don't like to be put under pressure. If you allow him to fight at his own pace, he can box circles around you. One of the fundamental mistakes Donaire made was trying to outbox a boxer, but at the same time, Donaire is not a good offensive fighter. He's always been a counter-puncher.

Agbeko on the other hand fights in one style. He'll push forward and put some pressure on Rigo. I think Rigo will win this fight 8-4, but I would not count out a Agbeko win...assuming he's still in his prime.

Agbeko seems to be the type who raises up to the occasion, Rigo is arguably the unofficial P4P King Agbeko knows it that's why I expect him to fight the fight of his life

I am pretty excited for this fight simply because I am just a fan of skillful fighters. But there will be some "Boo-birds" during this fight and then the posters will come in here and call Rigo a "boring" fighter. Agbeko is a really good fighter that can be aggressive at times, but at his core he is a counter-puncher and Rigo is exclusively a counter-puncher. The casual fans will rip this fight....but I am pretty damn excited.

It will be Rigondeaux most exciting fight to date, mainly because Agbeko is coming in Guns blazing & Rigo will bomb him with laser guided lefts and rights

His whole CP style is based on being under pressure. He's a stick and mover who has been fighting under pressure since his amateur days.
No idea what you're talking about

It's the Cordoba fight spooking. Rigo deviated from his usual styly until the 7th or so, he even tried close fighting but Cordoba got arguably the better of it. After which he stared to stick and move and cruised to victory. The judges saw many of those rounds for cordoba, though. Same as in the Donaire fight, really - judges don't like him.

I'll take Agbeko for the split decision upset in this one.
