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?

I think a lot of people are overlooking this fight, the magnitude of it and the complications for both sides. A lot of us are impressed by Rigondeaux, that's what got the fight made, because Rigondeaux is a very impressive fighter. It's realistically too early in his professional career to be getting a fight of this magnitude, but he got this fight because of his largely successful amateur background, and he skillfully looks more impressive than most of Donaire's competition. But first, I want to make it clear that Rigondeaux is no Floyd Mayweather. We haven't seen enough of him to put him on that level yet (which I would honestly say is a level of the highest, even greater than Donaire). I don't think we can realistically say he's going to walk through Donaire and vice versa.
This however is a very big fight IMO, like a Ray Leonard vs Thomas Hearns caliber type of a fight. This is not just a warrior/gladiator fight of the year hype type of fight, both fighters bring a lot of high caliber skill to the table. This fight can be difficult to determine. I see it kind of a toss up, with multiple possible outcomes.

Rigondeaux often becomes overly patient, Donaire is capable of exploiting this, because he knows how to be an aggressor, and can win rounds with activity. Donaire himself can often be impatient and become careless against patient fighters, leaving himself open to counters. That's a win type of fight for Rigondeaux, but I'm sure Donaire is not that stupid. Donaire actually does have some versatility. Donaire often changes the way he fights, and you see Donaire become careless a lot, especially in recent fights, but I think hes a kind of guy who respects the level of his competition. Where he will naturally open himself up more, if he feels the guy isn't too much of a threat and whatnot. If you notice, he's more careful in some fights compared to others. I'd expect he'd do that in this fight with Rigondeaux, knowing his style of patient counter-punching and how big of a puncher he is. He did the same with other fighters like Montiel. Donaire also takes punishment well as far as I can tell, where Rigondeaux has been easily hurt and wobbled by big punches. And both fighters are big punchers. That's actually a really big advantage there for Donaire. Donaire is no joke of a counter puncher himself, Rigondeaux has a lot to watch out for. This looks more of a slow chess-match kind of fight, who can bait and hurt who first. We can expect either a decision if both fighters respect each other long enough, or a knockout when either fighter gives in. I also wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a high paced fight, where the tense scale pushes them both out of their element, and it may become a war. We haven't seen Rigondeaux in that kind of fight before, so Donaire may have more options in this fight. I think there's a lot we can expect, and a lot of people should be looking forward to this fight. Probably the best one coming up.
