What makes me a little impatient for this fight is that Donaire has his sights set on 126, and Rigo isn't getting any younger.
I really want Rigo to get some more opponents under his belt, but he might wind up sacrificing his chance to fight Nonito if he goes that route. It might be a blessing in disguise if Rigo doesn't fight Nonito. I can see him being a top 3 122lb as long as he takes his career seriously. If Nonito decided to move up, it wouldn't make much of a difference because there are numerous opponents that Rigo can face.
