he's fast as shit! but very precise. laser like precision to be exact! that looping left he throws to the live never seems to miss. watching his highlight video...u almost have to slow shit down to catch it.


I guess "precise" is what I was getting at, but for some reason, I couldn't get it out. I'll blame it on the trees though. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drag.gif)

Stoked about this one and getting more excited as we count down the days. Rigo is looking terrific. I haven't seen much of Donaire. I was never a big fan of Casamayor, but I'm very pleased to see him in Rigos camp. Something about that seems right. And Pedro Diaz in the corner seems like a better fit than Rubio, whom Rigo sometimes seemed to ignore. The respect is there with Diaz, and the relationship is there from the amateurs. And Diaz's training techniques are so fun to watch, especially with Rigo being so athletic and super fast. He's like a mongoose...Rikki Tikki Tavi (favorite childhood story alert, lol).

So, I'm expecting the little mongoose to bite the head of the bigger cobra and dash the hopes of Arum and HBO...but this will definitely not be an easy fight for Rigo....and the fact that Donaire was so very reluctant speaks volumes to his unspoken acknowledgement that this will be a very difficult fight for him as well.

That cat's left to the body is crazy. I like the intrigue of this match up. Donaire, who has shown he has a bit of trouble w/ guys who are really good defensively, will be getting a guy who pretty much stays in his wheel house. To the naked eye, this looks just what the doctor order for Nonito. However, I dunno. It's going to be real interesting to see how cautious or reckless Donaire gets w/n striking range of Rigo.

I'm taking Rigondeaux.

I'm watching this Marroquin fight and I simply am watching boxing domination.

Too much experience and too many skills. Movement, compact frame, low center of gravity.

I see this guy frustrating Nonito. I also see Nonito being hit. A lot.

If the judges have been paid off, Nonito wins. Otherwise, it's Rigo all day.

Rewatching the Marroquin fight later. And a Donaire fight...not sure yet which one. But Rigo is looking great...And Donaire appears more solid (if you will), physically, than in recent fights. He's even sporting a tan. But he's also above mandatory weight. 7 pounds over on Monday. 5 extra pounds today. Baby on the way. His "nutritionist" (heavy quotations) left him 3 weeks before the biggest fight of his career....things are getting mighty interesting over at camp Donaire.

Forgive my rhyming...lol. Once I started, kinda had to finish it. Lol
