http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1KO4RuYpY8...h?v=R1KO4RuYpY8 Nonito Donaire vs Rafael Concepcion Highlights

I just saw this vid and all i could think about was if it was Rigondeaux instead of Rafael. Will Nonaire's left hook be less effective because of Rigondeaux's southpaw stance and shoulder roll?. Marroquin hurt him with a few left hooks. This guy wasn't really slick at all and was making Nonito run around the ring, his face may not have showed anguish but running back like that with your hands down seemed like some survival mode tactic.

Idk if people are giving my dude Rigondeaux a good chance. I can confidently say that Rigondeaux will win by KO. But anything can happen.

Thoughts?

this reminds me of when torres and corley were able to rock cotto....or when trinidad would get dropped in his fights...and it was the reason everyone would pick against him in his next tough fight. the thing that everyone seems to be missing is this: what did he do after he got rocked? everyone gets hurt at one time or another...it's what you do afterwards that impresses me. in rigondeaux's case...he did NOT let marroquin follow up with anything and he came back to drop him and rock him on more than one occasion.

i also look at donaire's fight against narvaez. narvaez was a southpaw who stood at 5'3 and came up in weight to fight donaire. donaire couldn't do shit against him and dude put hands on him more than once. narvaez wasn't a big puncher. rigondeaux is. this is going to be interesting.

Anytime I think of Cotto (in his early days) and Tito getting hurt, it's not about what they did after they got up, it was more about how much of it was actually legal. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I remember the Cotto/Corley fight being full of fouls, and I don't quite remember if he pushed the envelope in the Torres fight (in regards to fouls). As for Tito, who can forget round 4 of the Vargas fight? I get your point though, most of the fights in which they were hurt, they either came back and won, or they survived all the way to the championship rounds.

Rigo did a decent job of holding in the Marroquin fight after being hurt. However, there's nothing really special about Marroquin's left hook and straight right hand, which is the complete opposite situation from Donaire's standpoint. Honestly, I believe Arum made the Donaire/Rigo fight, based off of Rigo's hard moments of that fight.

As big as Marroquin was, I believe Donaire will be that size or bigger...plus he'll be more athletic than anybody Rigo's been in in with. I believe that the key to this fight is Rigo landing a couple of somewhat big shots early to get Donaire's respect. In all honesty, those big Marroquin hooks that hurt Rigo, landed in the temple area, so to be fair to Rigo, we don't know if his chin is bad or not.

Maybe, but if you know like I know, Pinoys and Pinays are EVERYWHERE...lol. They'll come out in droves for Nonito, especially since Manny still seems to be on his Tempur-pedic, courtesy of one JMM. Believe me, if there was remotely a chance of Nonito being out "supported" in this one, I doubt The Bobfather would have it in NYC. This, as you've eluded toward, was to get more interest in Cubans. **Which begs the question, why hasn't EACH and every one of Rigs fights been in Miami?**

The same question can be asked about Gamboa when he was with Arum. Maybe Arum knows something that we don't know about revenue in Miami. I believe he attempted to hold the Rios/Gamboa presser in Miami, but Gamboa never showed up.

There must be something that we don't know. I believe that's the whole reason why we never got Gamboa/Juanma. Juanma was a big ticket in PR and decent one in the States...the same couldn't be said about Gamboa though. Maybe it was Arum's plan of making it a "superfight" along with the endless requirements of such a superfight caliber, that killed it when Lopez got KO's by Salido.
