Default Besides gamboa, are other cuban fighters boring to watch? I can name 3 that are ...

Boring. Lara, rigo, abril. I mean lets face it gbp and arum dont like each other but both dont want to put their cubans in big fights vs fighters like canelo and donaire. Lets face reality these cuban fighters are just boring in which they cant sell to save their lives.

If Rigo is boring to you, you should just go watch UFC.

Anybody that mentions Rigondeaux as being boring is a straight up hater. The guy has 8 stoppage wins in 11 fights. He has put every one of his opponents on the canvas. He has one shot knockdown power to the head and body. How is that boring? Why the double standard? Donaire has stunk it up in all of his recent fights since Montiel.

Anyone one else bummed to watch Don King involved in this type of fight?

Rigo is not always boring, but he does tend to make ugly fights. Lara clinches way too damn much. The cubans are so used to amateur fighting that it just becomes part of their style.

I've seen this guy Angelo Santana for the first time. Somehow he had been slipping under the radar. He is good, can fight inside and outside. He just KO'd Johnny García with what could be KO of the year so far.

Gamboa, Odlanier Solis is a fat **** but he's not boring to watch neither is Mike Perez at HW. Despaigne's pretty good to watch.

in history Kid Gavilan, Benny Paret, Kid Chocolate, El Cepillo- Casamayor, Napoles, Nino Valdez, shit even Hurtado......

Angelo Santana just lit up some dynamite on Showtime.

That kid is no bore.

Dio is one of my favorite unheralded 90's boxers.

I like watching Rigo, but Gamboa is definitely on fire when he's turned on.

Rigo is nowhere near boring. if you found his fights on Kennedy and Marroquin boring, find another sport.

this guy moves like a cat and is a beauty to watch.

The only boring one listed there is Abril. Boring, ugly, horrible to watch.

Lara isn't always in thrillers, and neither is Rigondeaux - but they're both capable of producing some pretty sensational stuff.
