Here's my two-fold view on this; first off, the only reason this fight is happening is because Arum knows better than to throw Donaire to the wolf (Rigo) again and he has to build up some confidence in him before he goes looking for bigger fish to fry.

We've already seen what this fight will look like in the rematch by the way VD fought in the first fight, he will get put to sleep again in the same fashion but probably even sooner this time around.

The other reason should be quite obvious which is easy money for Arum but I'll caveat on that by adding that Bob knows a win by KO in this fight will make Donaire look like he did prior to Nonito's loss to Rigo and who better to give you that human highlight reel KO than a run-in face forward styled fighter like Vic Darchinyan.

Hmmmm, it seems this formula that Arum is using is an ongoing theme in the fights he has lined up.

Your thoughts??

Donaire always liked picking on flyweights now he gets to pick on one while weighing 140 pounds on fight night. Kellerman will say "this proves Donaire is a p4p guy.

He needs to rebuild his confidence. Watch Saul do the same thing by fighting a lesser opponent. Sadly, the veil has been lifted on Donaire. he looks great against bullshit competition but against real opposition, he folds and gets shut down.

Idk about this "veil", nonito is incredibly talented but as Floyd says, skills pay the bills and rigo has skill to spare.

Check of all the fighters that Donaire faced how many were threats other than Rigo? His opposition has always been in question. Rigondeaux has major skills and because of that Arum and HBO are shutting his ass down. He should of had two more fights this year. The guy is wasting away. He needs to leave HBO and Arum and come to Showtime. I love watching Rigondeaux box.A thing of beauty.

The same reason that we saw Pac/Barrera II...it's pretty much a "filler" fight that's going to sale. One thing about Bob, he can use the smallest freakin' detail, sell it to the fans, and milk it to no ends.
