That doesn't mean Rigo's an especially deserving opponent.

And your well behind when it comes to promotional contracts.
And you've been proven wrong on this.

Seriously this is one of the best fights thats can be made in boxing right now. are you actually a boxing fan? what fights would excite you for Donaire...and anybody else for that matter?
Why do you have to be dismissive, or elitist? I don't think it's a bad fight, but Rigo hasn't done enough to really get me excited. Add to that the fact that he's pretty dull in the ring - it's just not shouting out to me.

The big Donaire fight I want is against Mares. The Vic fight is poor, no doubt, but it's not Nonito's fault that Rigo won't agree to the deal.

The question remains what fights would excite you?

I just said Donaire-Mares excites me. The question remains, why are you being so dismissive?

There are plenty of other fights I'm looking forwards to, there's not much that excites me about Donaire engaging in a game of hide and seek with Rigo.

Mares has moved up to 126 lbs, would rather Mares vs Donaire next but it seems Golden Boy and TopRank couldn't come to agreement then Mares decided to move up.

From reading the General forum Donaires next fight is either Darchinyan or Rigondeaux.

was listening to a podcast earlier today that said the contract drawn up by GBP for Donaire-Mares was littered with flaws.
