Could have sworn Donaire knocked out pound 4 pound rated, undefeated and prime Vic Darchynian so bad Vic didn't even know he was knocked out! But I guess that was all timing, somehow Donaire knew that Vic wasn't at his best!
Donaire doesn't get the credit he deserves on NSB for some reason. If you can't tell he's a great fighter, I don't know what to do for you. Rigondeaux stylistically is a problem for ANYONE. But let's not simply assume he'd beat donaire because he's a great boxer. Rigo was hurt pretty bad in his last fight by a far inferior fighter than Donaire. As much as I love Rigondeaux, I honestly can't say he could survive a flush Donaire hook or not.
Donaire vs Rigondeaux is the fight I'm looking forward to the most in 2013. I think it's a fantastic match-up which must be made. No excuses.
