Default Rigondeaux is a monster!!! Any new believers?

I just became a believer at last Saturday. I didn't like talk of him versus Donaire so early. But know I get it.

This guy will be ducked badly because he only has a three year window before he's out of his prime. I almost think they're lying about his age I bet he's 35

Why is there "Gary Rigondeaux" in the tags?

His timing is incredible. His opponents know all he does is try to set up and land that left hand over and over and there's not a thing they can do to stop it

I've been a believer since I saw him one-shotting a dude with a puny looking body blow in the first seconds of a fight

Rigo is a monster, technically speaking the best fighter out there right now, even better than Floyd (oh blasphemy!!)

Further controversy.

I think Rigo's use of his left hand is far more educated and dangerous than Pacquiao's.

Guillermo is a beast and I dont see him fighting big fighters anytime soon, he will be avoided to death. But still be remembered as a great fighter

Could not stand him a few fights ago tbh. I forget the guys name he fought....but it was a terrible fight and I felt like he spent more time trying to look good defensively than actually fight.

But I loved watching his fight this past weekend. Great skills.

After watching Rigo I was seriously impressed.
I can't judge his technique until I see it against better opponents.
So yea..that is a blasphemous statement that exposed you as a Floyd hater.

You'll have to wait and see more of his professional fights.
He has to fight better fighters.

Flash cant hang though

I don't know of Donaire is the right guy to exploit them, but Rigo has glaring weaknesses against aggressive fighters who can defend. It's a very small group of fighters, but where someone is willing to fight, Rigo has a tendency to lay back, similar to Chad Dawson. Someday, someone much worse than him will exploit that flaw and beat him. Fortunately for Rigo, he might be fighting in the weakest weight class in the sport. Someone like Nishioka or Quigg might be able to give him trouble, however. Donaire has the same tendency, however, and if Donaire doesn't outwork Rigo, Rigo outboxes him.
