2) I honestly believe that the long, long years that Rigo has spent honing his game to perfection has left him less versatile than he should be. I'm not sure that he can bring himself to fight a different way against top-level opposition. And I know plenty of people will say "but he won't have to modify his style, Poon will come right at him"; that's true, but unless Rigo cold-****s him with a counter (which I admit is possible, but unlikely given Poon's top-level chin), then I simply don't believe Rigo has the killer instinct to finish a Poon type of fighter. A hapless Willie Casey, yes, but not the top talents at 122.
Marquez arleady showed that a top level chin is no match for a counter puncher with timing and power.
