I was totally blown away by Rigondeaux's skill and intelligence. Who saw that move where he stepped into Donaire's right hand punch and jammed it with his shoulder and then stepped back to avoid the left hook? Just fucking beautiful! Are there any other fighters that do that? Rigondeaux did this 3 times, once to bump Donaire of balance and then escape. Mayweather was my favorite fighter and now it's Rigondeaux! What other subtle skills did you guys pick up?

I wouldn't go that far but it is refreshing to see some ring IQ in there. He did still get dropped from not tying up correctly and Donaire won the footwork battle until about the 5th or 6th round. He definitely made a fan out of me though and I will be watching his fights in the future. I'm officially a Rigo fan. Not in the sense of say a Daquan Arnett who I'm intrigued by. I'm already completely sold on this guy!

I didn't see it that way! I thought Donaire was never able to cut the ring off and never made Rigo's back touch the ropes/nor did he keep him there and go to the body to stop him from moving so much.
