Rigondeaux has had 400 amateur fights, he better know something. he is a smart fighter and he made Donaire adjust to his style and Donaire had no answer for it. However this was Rigondeaux first big title fight. He should that he needs to work on his balance and footwork. He was knocked down because he was off balance and was falling back when Donaire landed it which is why the punch was not as affective if he was standing up straight. Rigondeaux is a smart fighter great IQ but let's give him some time before we crown him king.

i thought he fought the wrong ndou. this guy may have had a good record but that was about it. lovemore ndou would have been a stiffer test. they fooled the public with this match up.

I have to go back and look at it. From what I saw of the replay it seemed he was already off balance but I will check it out in slow motion. But to answer your question I did not notice Donaire doing that which further makes me think he is a serious hype job.

Where was I when this thread was opened???

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I wouldn't quite put him on par with Mayweath just yet, but dude knows how control a fight, even against a more athletic Doanire-type of fighter. Being calm while fighting THAT type of style, is a feat within itself.

He gets this type of credit, because Donaire is an above average fighter that he schooled. That's how it's supposed to go. As much as I dont like Donaire, I cant say that he's a hype job or overrated...because that would be taking away from Rigondeaux's victory, which Donaire is in 5th gear of doing as we speak.
