that he will test no matter...and it was up to them if they wanted to join him or some bullshit like that? now he's saying he won't fight rigondeaux unless he tests. hopefully rigondeaux agrees and this fight happens.

Is it me or is Donaire really tryna back out of this fight? I mean Rigo says he wants a contract in Spanish before he signs it, seeing as he can only speak Spanish, this is fine..

As soon as Donaire hears about any kind of delay in the contract signing, he's instantly reporting to the media that there are problems and that he will look elsewhere?!

Plus lets not forget how they started throwing Vic's name around all of a sudden too???

I like Nonito as a fighter, and he generally has taken challenging fights, or at least worthy fighters. However this recent aversion to a fight with G-Rig is kinda weird. Mares he gets a pass due to the whole GBP/TR mess. That is not the case in regards to G-Rig tho...

Oh and you guys are right, what happened to the whole, " I don't care if my opponent takes the tests" crap Nonito was talking. You don't care if Arce an them don't, but G-Rig.. Better make sure huh? loool!

its probably because of the stuff thats come out about Gamboa that he's a bit nervous about.

Maybe...

But the only link between Gamboa and G-Rig is nationality I think. Plus his name wasn't in the notepads with everyone elses and Gamboa's... So if that is his reasoning, its a bit boo really. If anything I see it as more of an attempt to establish a link between the Cuban Olympian Gamboa's alleged PED use and the also former Cuban Olympian G-Rig. Like he's suggesting it, when all G-Rig did was ask for a translated version of the contract.

Either way, that still doesn't explain the change in attitude Nonito's had. From "let them juice so long as i'm clean" to "hey, I need to make sure this guy aint cheating yo". To me, that speaks more on his perception of G-Rig as a threat than anything else. Besides, G-Rig was the one who said he wanted to do the testing, so its unlikely that testing was ever an issue for him. He prob wasn't even looking to get the contract in Spanish for that purpose. He probably just wanted to make sure he wasn't signing anything stupid financially or otherwise.

That said, i'm of the opinon that at least all title fights should have some kind of stricter testing. So i'm not 100% against Donaire's stance, just the way he's gone about it in this instance.
