This is the fight where Rigo's gonna experience first hand what real competition is worth of. Those 11 fights is nothing compared to what he's gonna experience now.

Rigo's a good fighter and he may one day become great but Donaire is just too early for him. I'll favor Donaire to pull this one. This is gonna be sneaky. TKO early rds

this is what I am talking about and this is what I don't get with the amount of hate he gets, sure he isn't much outside the ring but when it comes to boxing he is what it should be

I like both of these guys, but I am rooting for Rigondeaux all the way. At one time, I was leaning towards Rigondeaux to be the victor. I just think he will not be able to deal with Donaire's good lateral movement. So, I pick Donaire.

im more and more excited about this fight, i think Rigo is going to bring it and so is Donaire

stylistically it could be a boring fight. Rigo has the handspeed but i dont think he could hurt Donaire with single shots or win rounds using just jabs, he will be outworked IMO

It works for Mayweather and Hopkins. It works for James Toney.

James Toney ain't today and the other two, in one case literally, get 'grandfathered' in.

Rigondeux has excellent footwork. I saw him since the amateurs. Anything Donaire can do boxing and technique wise he can do better. The problem is he doesn't seem to have the chin or the power. He has the technique but unless he fights like Hopkins or Ward he's not going to have an easy night just due to the style he tends to fight.

If he goes back to his Olympic amateur style he can beat Donaire but it wont look so good as people will say he's fighting negative and potshotting.

Rigondeux has as much power as Donaire at this weight. Both have one punch KO power at this weight. Rigondeux can KO you with a body shot or his hook. Donaire has a hook and straight right.

I'm not saying that Marroquin is P4P entry but he can bang, has a great amateur background and is a young lion with a bright future, Nishioka was there for the check, we all knew, he was old for SBW and and after the fight he confirmed that he just want it the check, he retired and not because Nonito, it was his plan all along, and remember all the trouble that went on with GR-RM fight, the event was cancelled then back on again and 3 days before fight night Rigondeaux was back in Miami for a court day, as a matter of fact Guillermo didn't want to fight that night, Rubio has to beg him, scare him with a law suit and all the $h1t he could think of it, that is why Rigondeaux ask TR to settle with Caribe, he wants a nice camp and you will not see the same bored and unfocused fighter Marroquin fought...

Well well well. The majority of you guys are in Don~aire's favor so that means that " most " of you don't see Rigondeaux winning, not even giving him a chance. It's funny how many of you think Don~aire is invincible and a super human specimen when he is a one dimensional fighter. If/when Rigo school's him, most of you are going to be in denial for months ...

Quit your crying man. Just enjoy watching your fighter fight this cause this is gonna be his biggest fight as to date. Donaire's being favored for several reasons. Nothing wrong with that.

Who's crying brother? I am just amazed at seeing most of you don't give Rigo a chance. It just shows how ignorant boxing fans can be ...
