Donaire Feels Agbeko Has Good Shot To Beat Rigondeaux

By Ryan Burton

Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8KOs) will enter the ring a sizeable favorite when he faces Joseph Agbeko (29-4, 22KOs) in the main event of an HBO televised tripleheader on December 7th in Atlantic City, New Jersey. In his last fight, Rigondeaux survived a late knock down in route to a unanimous decision over Nonito Donaire. 

BoxingScene.com recently caught up with Donaire to get his opinion on the upcoming Rigondeaux-Agbeko bout. The "Filipino Flash" understands why Rigondeaux is the favorite but feels that Agbeko has the style and physical attributes to give the Cuban trouble.

"It is a good fight. Agbeko, if he uses his distance and apllies pressure like he always does I think he has a good chance. Rigo is a very smart fighter, a very slick fighter but he is not too fast on his feet where you can't catch him. It's  his body movement. If you just don't worry about that and you go with the body and pressure him I think it will be tough for him," Donaire told BoxingScene.com.
