Default Rigondeaux fighting on Pac undercard?

I believed he was fighting at Arce Donaire undercard.
at f...news

the idea was to show Nonito and Rigo in the same card.

Rigo keeps making his bread on Pac undercards.

Donaire keeps telling us Rigo doesn't deserve to fight him, when everyone in the boxing fraternity is screaming for it to happen.

The undercard has been announced for the fourth installment of the legendary series between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez on December 8 on pay-per-view from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Cuba’s Guillermo Rigondeaux defends his super bantamweight title against Thailand’s Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym, Yuriorkis Gamboa faces Michael Farenas, Miguel Vazquez battles Mercito Gesta, and Javier Fortuna takes on Patrick Hyland. And featured is the pro debut of Jose Ramirez.

Fighting on the Donaire undercard would increase the pressure for Nonito to fight him, something that is clearly unacceptable.

I'm sure Donaire requested to keep Rigo away from him....even in the same card.
This tells you how little TR does to promote the fight between this 2

Everyone in boxing wants to see them fight, but Donaire.

I am really getting annoyed with Nonitos blatant ducking of Rigondeaux. If Rigondeaux's glass is so easy to crack, why doesn't he go ahead and do it and earn the respect from all boxing media outlets?

EVERYONE wants that fight, Nonito is the only one who publically slithers and avoids the fight.

That under card is very good. I may watch and turn it off when the main event comes on

If Rigo gets exposure on Nonito's card he might actually have to fight him. Pretty obvious.

I think they did this because they didn't expect too much demand for the Pacquaio vs Marquez card, considering it's the 4th installment.

With the addition of Gamboa and less so, Rigo, it makes it a better fight card.

Top Rank wanted to move Rigo to the Pacquaio undercard but Team Rigo has requested the fight to be moved back to Donaire's card

Rigo wants to turn on the head so Donaire can't duck the questions if he tries all this "hes not worthy of a shot" the crowd will know hes ducking....

You hate Pacquaio that much?

I thought nobody knows or care about the Cubans though? How could a no-name like Rigondeaux improve the card at all? Wouldn't it have been preferable to have a star like Omar Narvaez or Jeffrey Mathebula on the undercard instead?

I doubt it has anything to do with Donaire. I think they just want to stack the card for the Pacquaio PPV.

Remember, the Donaire card is free on HBO.

All you need is Donaire and Arce to sell the fight and get big numbers.

What value would Rigo add to the card? I think they are concerned with lower than anticipated numbers on the Pacquaio fight, so they are doing everything they can to make it a great all around card.

I think people are recognizing Rigo's skill, and with a tough come foward opponent, it could make for a good fight.

It's all about match making.

Rather loose definition of big numbers.
