I'm trolling a little bit but I do think Donaire gets rid of him mid rounds.

I don't think it's much of a fight but whatever, hope I'm wrong. I really wanted to see the Mares fight even though I expect Donaire to take that one too. Has more potential IMO.

The best case scenario is Nonito gets down early, and Garcia tells him to get aggressive. Donaire throwing 30 punches a round is going to get him embarrassed in this fight. He has to be an animal and just bring it to Rigondeaux.

Not everyone appreciates a guy who fights like nonito before the knockout and many people don't appreciate rigondeaux smooth movement and quick counter punches

Not sure Rigondeaux will do anymore than Navarez did and just sit in his shell.

If he does start coming out the same thing is happening to him that happened to Nishioka when he got a bit more aggressive.
