Default Donaire/Rigo in doubt - Rigo doesn't agree to VADA testing

Quote:
I want you guys to hear it from me first. I am NOT going to NYC for the presser this Thursday bc Rigo is backing off his agreement to VADA drug testing. Rigo's team verbally agreed to VADA testing both online and in negotiations. But now that the contract to start testing is infront of them, they are finding every excuse not to sign and delay the start of the testing. I have NOT signed my fight contract yet to fight him so I have no obligation to fight ONLY HIM. It disappoints me that top fighters these days run from everything that will hold professional boxing integrity to its highest standard. I will be looking into other opponents with my manager, Cameron Dunkin immediately.

Nice stalling TR to let the heat blow over from the Mares debacle. The fight will still happen imo

Time for Rigondeaux to be a man. Fight is in front of him. Additional drug testing is only positive, never an excuse to not fight in my opinion.

Kind of ironic that Donaire is basically trying to force the guy to do voluntary testing via the Voluntary Anti Doping Agency. Regardless, I can't say I blame Donaire. Rigo trains out of Miami, home of BALCO East. On the other hand, Rigo is only required to do testing run by the commission. Hopefully, Rigo does the testing and the fight proceeds as scheduled.
