Default Donaire fights on back foot !

I don't see donaire taking the fight to Rigo after he feels Rigo power. He may be sly and opt to tie up Guillermo and push him off. This is a smart movie by Donaire. Fight on the outside. And let rigo chase him. Do not at anytime stand still. Make the fight active and test rigo stamina in later rounds. Use the reach to your advantage . saying it is easy but executing it is totally different.

It sounds as though Rigo is an excellent swarmer.

Rigo isn't as good the aggressor as he should be. Donaire fighting backing up would give him a lot of troubles.

Both men's chances rely on being able to lure the other guy moving forward and catching them with counters.

Who'll be able to implement it is the question.

Donaire would be in his element fighting backing up. The trouble is if Rigo baits him into leading. But even then, at his best, Donaire sets up his punches really well and triggers the right openings. Against Mathebula and Vasquez, Donaire was having visible problems looking for one punch. He looked a lot better setting things up against Nishioka.

I've said from the beginning this fight will look like the Nishioka fight. Donaire really does fight down to the level of his opponent to put on a show when he can. When Donaire needs to be at his best, he is. If Rigo DOESN'T come forward he won't win a decision against Nonito. Nonito isn't Pac, he won't get reckless trying to make something happen.

Donaire wont control the style of the fight. But I think Donaire could win if he times Rigondeux and takes a punch to give. If he tries to fight cautious he gets ktfo and I'm a Donaire fan.

Rigondeux isn't anything like Nishioka. It's not going to look like any fight either of them have ever been in.

Rigo is a good aggressor, he just chooses not to fight that way since the amateurs. As a pro a lot of the time he wants to settle for out pointing guys when he could have just knocked them all out.

Exactly! Alot of people seems to be pointing out the Mathebula,Vasquez and Narvaez's fights but forget the fights Donaire was at his element.People dont understand that he want's too put a show.That is why he sometimes leads against lesser fighters.Againts the best,he is more careful.

People are missing the Nishioka fight.Where he really came back to his roots.Nishioka didnt give any openings.When Donaire was giving combos he didnt stay there for too long.He got out quickly.Unlike the other fights where he was just hoping the land that big punch that knocked Montiel.

Two ways for Rigo to lose
One ,he gets the Montiel treatment if Rigo gets agressive
Two,he gets the Nishioka treatment,where he will wind up losing points for his economical output.And when Rigo finally exchanges,He'll go down.

I mean overall strategy. Rigo is a counter puncher. Nishioka was waiting to counter Donaire so Nonito had to open him up and that is how the stoppage occurred. I think the same type of fight will evolve here. Rigo is going to be about as cautious as Nishioka was but Nonito will draw him out and score.

Nonito won't get away from those straight lefts. i think his best bet is to try to make a fight out of it and get the KO, but stay patient.

Donaire is not getting the W in the chess match department.
