I understand. I feel the same way. But I think a lot of this has to do with Rigo's very limited professional experience. Guillermo is still learning the pro version of the sport. He's fought over four hundred amateur fights. One can become set in his ways after so many bouts. Habits become ingrained. Since he was spectacularly successful as an amateur, Rigo will tend to do what he's always done. It's human nature.

I honestly believe Guillermo Rigondeaux is a highly gifted boxer. Perhaps people that think like myself have set unrealistic expectations for him. Rigo might never live up to them. He's a 32 year-old rookie boxer. Despite his vaunted talent and achievements, that fact remains. Time will tell if Guille can live up to expectations. But I think we'll know soon enough, especially if a Donaire fight happens in 2013.
