yes! one of the best fights that can happen in boxin
may be borin but id love to see if Donaire's power will trouble Rigo, or Rigo's defensive skills make Donaire miss all night

It wouldn't sell & the venue would be half empty.

Rigo barely has fans and donaire hbo ratings are low compared to other fighters. It will do 80k buys

I would definately watch the fight to see Donaire destroy Rigo, but would not pay for it. This fight is just not PPV material. You would have to seriously stack the card in order for it to be remotely possible to showcase as a PPV, and even then it is farfetched.

Rigo has no fans. Donaire has fans, but he hasn't yet inherited the Island of the Phillipines Pacman posesses. So the venue would not sell out, and that's a good sign that it isn't PPV material.

I'm only interested in paying for fights where Donaire is in with exciting big names like Omar Narvaez and guys meritocratically deserving of a shot with him like Wilfredo Vazquez Jr and 2012 Jorge Arce.

Too obscure and might not have publicly called Donaire out to create excitement for a fight like Jeffrey Mathebula.

I would watch donaire crack some glass but I ain't paying for that shit, hardcore fans are a tiny spec in POV numbers most are just casuals and the only PPV worthy fight would be


mares donaire with a stacked Mexican Pr and flip card.

also put rigo donaire on HBO championship and let donaire get a highlight ko reel then make the mares fight Ppv.

You are right. But with a good under I wouldn't mind to pay for it.
