Rigondeaux v Donaire Result


Recommended Posts

Guillermo Rigondeaux retained his WBA super bantamweight championship and added the WBO super bantamweight belt, unanimously outpointing Nonito Donaire on Saturday night at Radio City Music Hall.

Rigondeaux improved to 12-0, receiving winning scores of 114-113, 115-112 and 116-111 in the unification bout. He failed to knock out his opponent for only the fourth time since turning pro, but overcame being knocked down twice in the opening minute of the 10th round in a performance that had some booing the lack of action.

Rigz pu ton  a most excellent boxing clinic, Donaire looked like a lost child, almost shades of Mayweather Marquez. I kept hearing Roy Jones's Can't be touched as the fight went on. And seriously Rigz could not be touched by Donaire. He demonstrated great evasiveness and foot work. His hand speed was off the hook, and he easily dispatched Donaire's left hook.

 

As for Donaire he failed in his first real test, I guess it got too easy for him fighting sub par fighters, he does not deserve to be listed in any P4P at all after that basic layman's showing in the ring.

 

He lacked the ability to adjust and attempt a secondary game plan after several rounds of being Rigz whipping boy. It is what it is and his hype is over.

i'm sure mex is thrilled that another "overated cuban refugee" has claimed a top spot in the sport & outclassed a guy with so many victories over mexican fighters...rigo would school mares too mex!

Agreed Mares would be seriously owned!,

I'll think on the avvy and sig bet.

 

 

Great fight, I was entertained the whole time. Rigo is as advertised, the guy is something special.

rigondeaux would beat the dog shit out of mares, or tame him completely to the point where he fights as timidly as donaire did

 

its not unusual for a man to beat a boy in the amateurs , usually doesn't end up the same when they fight pro.  Rigondeaux doesn't beat the dog shit outta anyone so lets get off the lean 

 

Rigondeaux fought well against a big name opponent who was a perfect style for him , he still has a lot to prove , Lets get him in with a guy who isn't a counter puncher and can hit

Lets try any of these 3 guys , rusell jr, santa Cruz , or Mikey Garcia ,

 

mikey garcia is the guy. his height and skill could present problems.   and he's with top rank.  he's not an aggressive pressure fighter though, he's a patient technician and a fight between him and rigondeaux would be a chess match. 

 

russell jr is with haymon/golden boy as is santa cruz. so no point in even considering these guys.  for what its worth Id love to see russell jr vs rigondeaux.  santa cruz gets destroyed.
