I agree, his in and out style, defense and counter punching is definitely on par with Mayweathers. But i would take Mayweathers lead hook over Rigondeaux's. Rigondeaux is just Mayweather going Southpaw haha. And also Mayweather's inside game is much better, Mayweather can stand in the pocket and still not get hit, so he doesn't move around as much but still would if he had to.

Dude is nasty, that's why i been hyping him, well not hyping him but was excited because I recognized the skills and potential he had, he impressed me more than Nonito when i first saw him. Have you seen him do those like shadow feints? and setting people up with it, it's beautiful. Ring intelligence A++.

some of us knew this would happen but dam, I didnt think he would make Nonito look THAT BAD. Funny thing is he seemed VERY CAUTIOUS against Nonito. He didn't throw the as much body shots as he usually does, didn't do the shadow feint, just took it back to the fundamentals. Gotta appreciate it.


i agree...his inside game leaves a little to be desired. he squares up and i was a little disappointed that he let donaire use that elbow to stand him up and drop him. aside from that one mistake though he was nearly flawless.

i'd say his skill and ring intelligence is on par for sure. mayweathers inside skills are superior....but rigondeaux outside skills make up for it.

that's no different than when mayweather throws his overhand right and swings his back foot in to smother the counter.


I mean he's literally on one foot which leaves his balance not in the best of positions.

You can say Rigos counter punching and defense is on par with Floyd and thats about it. The guys had 4 trainers in 12 fights and none of them could get this guy to come forward. Floyd can fight on the inside. Hes walked fighters down. Thats something Rigo hasnt shown the ability to do that yet.

it's the reason i put him behind floyd and ward. plus he doesn't really have an inside game. but to his credit...i think he is superior to floyd and ward on the outside.

I don't understand how he'd smother the right hand from that position thanks to his foot being up?

floyd hardly uses his jab. this guys reflexes and foot work on the outside are unparalleled imo.
