Yeah I think so. But I don't think people believe it's really a risk as you say. You're taking away from Rigo's pedigree by saying that.

I'm a big fan of Rigo and I definitely don't mean he's not ready and/or in Nonito's league.

What I mean is that with Rigo's talent he could defend his title many times, earn plenty of money in the proces (along with his manager/promoter obviously) and later still get a huge megafight for much much more money. Why rush things?

On the other hand, looking at Rigo's age, now is maybe the right time.

Rigondeaux is way better than Whitaker, that's a no brainer right there.

Whitaker has always been overrated and when he fought anybody good he lost. Not to mention he got knocked out by the horrible Carlos Bojorquez who had a record of 26-10-6.

Carlos Bojorquez beat his ass up and Bojorquez is average at best.

11 professional fights. I wish he had 30, but his skill level is great.

It's because Cuba doesn't allow its athletes to turn pro unless they defect from there. Rigondeaux would have turned pro after his first gold medal and would be somewhere around 30-0 instead of the 11-0.

Rigondeaux is in his prime right now and he needs this fight to make himself more well-known in the boxing world. If he can beat Donaire, his popularity will sky rocket.

Wow, another person in the boxing world believes Rigondeaux's the greatest boxer ever. Also Freddie Roach says he's the greatest counter puncher ever and probably the greatest talent ever over Pacquiao.

Quote:
Butler, who had come to Havana to film and interview other famed Cuban boxers, asked Hector Vinent -- himself a two-time gold medalist and a trainer at the gym -- who the man was, assuming Rigondeaux to be a local.

"That's the greatest boxer who ever lived," Vinent said.

"He's the best counterpuncher I've ever seen," Roach said of Rigondeaux, speaking by phone from his gym in Los Angeles. "When I did the pads with him, I simply could not get through his defense. I tried. I couldn't, though.

"On his first day in the gym, he wanted to spar with Manny Pacquiao," Roach laughed. "I didn't allow it. I don't want Manny getting that kind of work in sparring. Manny is a bit big for him, but he's an offensive guy and with countering like that, he was more work than I needed.

"He's one of the greatest talents I've ever seen," Roach said of Rigo.

Then the trainer pauses, considering his words.

"Probably the greatest talent."
