First off I must say, so muhc wasted time. I had it a draw. I think the should fight again because that fight took way too much time to get going and in the end i was not happy with it. I thought donaire won it. I thought rigo wasnt boxing enough. Im kinda mad, and i dont even like donaire, i just feel rigo didnt do enough to deserve a UNANIMOUS win.

Just how I saw it tbh, if I watch it again I may have it differently but no offence to Rigo some rounds he lands two clean shots and thats what wins him the round. Sure he can be as elusive as he likes right but am still looking for an effective fighter that can do both, that can apply pressure and have a decent defense.

A lot of people complain about fighters not having good defense well am complaining fighters that rely heavily on defense have sub par offence at times. Or they can do both, see James Toney, see Young Mayweather, sure they could counter punch but it wasn't the only string to there bow.

The only time Rigo started to apply a lot of pressure of even become the aggressor was in the 12th when he thought Nonito was hurt and that's mainly cause Nonito was a fucking idiot making it the most obvious thing in the world that his eye was tagged. I don't even think Rigo was hurt from the KD, watching it closely he was stupidly square and that's why he fell right back.

Is it so bad that I want a fighter that can do both? People on these forums worship defensive fighters and I can see why it's truly something beautiful when executed properlu but a fighter that can do both, that's something really special something like Mikey Garcia or that kid I was talking about Jonathan Gonzales from Puerto Rico.

I think people lean more towards the defensive because there hasn't been a fighter recently with a a offense at the high level that these defensive fighters are at. Pac kinda was a long time ago, people have been hyping Canelo to be this magical fighter the aggressive counter puncher but we all know what I think of his hype.

Legend is Willie pep won a round without throwing a punch and I think last night might be the closest thing to me every seeing that again. Even when rigo wasn't throwing nonito was not applying effective pressure he had no defense and when he threw he missed nearly everything. Rigo controlled the pace landed when he wanted to and made nonito look stupid at times with stellar defense. And the best part was his amazing footwork, at no point did I think it looked like he was running, he was just using every angle and stepping around.

For someone that's suppose to train with Garcia nonito cannot cut the ring off for shit.
