Rigondeux isn't deserving of another HBO date, yet Miguel Vasquez AND Zou Shiming headline a Feb 22 card


Mikey faced an opponent in Burgos who he couldn't KO, nothing wrong with that but the HBO shill-crew repeatedly blamed Burgos for wanting to so-called survive? Why not be truthful and let it be known Mikey just couldn't blast him out of there (period) no matter if they fought 5 times?


Rigo-Agbeko snoozer Rigo fault... Mikey-Burgos snoozer Burgos fault... Donaire-Narvaez snoozer Narvaez fault

That's the problem with boxing today, so many people do not know how to properly define that word; I watched in sheer shock Saturday as Mikey Garcia fought a highly technical fight against a very solid and technically sound opponent in Burgos and yet people/the fans were booing. Some of these so called "Boxing Fans" these days simply think a fighter is just supposed to run into the other guy's fist to make it entertaining for them while risking their safety in the process.

HBO has Jim Lampley calling Rigondeaux RigonDULL, which is a bunch of BS; superior/Master Boxers will do that to their opponents (render them defenseless and afraid to fire their offense) so they should be crediting the man for his masterful domination of his craft.

All HBO is trying to cater to is the fandom that they created in allowing Gatti vs Ward to define what "boxing" is supposed to look like to their fans and it is an outright abomination for them to shut out without a doubt one of the top 3 Master Boxers in the sport just because he's so good that he shuts his competition down.

F+ck HBO

The difference is, rigo can do no more damage to hbos stable. They can treat him like shit, if they don't keep vazquez happy he starts calling out Crawford and that's not good for top rank..

Yes he does...motherf*cker covers those California fights all too well in those round by round threads. I'd be inclined to think that he works in one of the trailers during the cards.

pure boxers are usually hated on because they take no risks at all when it comes down to it. Or atleast thats Rigo, won't throw a punch unless everything is set up perfectly, and while thats fine, people don't want to wait for that shit, if the dude he was fighting was too scared to let his hands go then he was fighting a punching bag that could move, he should of cut off the ring and stopped him.

your pure boxers aren't respected because people don't appreciate the true art they just want to see rock em stock em robots but if they went for the kill it would make the fights more entertaining
TheCritics
the way Rigo made a very good fighter like Donaire look was definitely impressive in my book, had him pawing at his eye and scared to do anything... then, Mares was life and death with Agbeko, the same fighter who cowered for every minute of every round against Rigo

I'll admit for a weakness for rock em sock em robots, some days its all you wanna see, but christ that doesn't mean Rigo has to be that, there are plenty of fighters that fight both offensively and defensively, and when he fights on the defensive constantly and on the back foot it simply mean he doesn't want to fight the front foot because he cant

HBO shows no true objectivity in what they prefer in a fighter. They give an unproven fighter in Lomanchenko more props then Rigondeaux. Whose arguably accomplished just as much or even more as an amateur and whose more experienced as a pro and has fought better comp. At the end of the day it shouldn't matter how he or Ward or Mikey or which ever fighter fights. Its can you do what you do best and beat me at what I do best.

Shouldn't matter at all that Rigondeaux is a defensive minded fighter, that he's a counter puncher. He hasn't been beaten and he's done it doing it the way that best ensures victory. I enjoy a good knockout drag em type of fight too but I'm not close minded and I respect the art of the sport. Hit and don't get hit yet we seeing dumbbell fighters like Manny, Rios, and others get built into warriors

We complain that fighters are only one dimensional because they only come forward, but Rigo seems to only counter punch, never really mounting a full attack, kinda one dimensional.

aint nothing wrong with being one dimensional if that wins you fights every single time.

edit: rigondeaux will evetually run into a wall style wise, and in that moment he ill adapt and win again, he just has so much ability.

That, he's in his prime, he's so fast, so talented that he can make any style work for him, but I mean when he was performing his combinations in the air and showing Kennedy and then hitting and dropping Kennedy with them, that was damn impressive.
