What part of that DONT you understand???? Donaire doesnt OFFER a fighter a shot, his promoter does. Donaire doesn't pick his opponent, his PROMOTER DOES!!! Complaint to Arum, and even blame Rigo because HE renewed his contract with Top Rank in December!!! ONLY fighters like Vitali and Pac have a PARTIAL choice and ONLY Mayweather has a complete choice in who he fights! The rest of the Boxers do not. It is IN the CONTRACT! GET IT?? GOT IT?? GOOD! The only DUCKS are the QUACKS on here who don't know the contractual obligations of a fighter to a promoter and vice versa and speak from complete bias and ignorance! GET A FUKING CLUE!!
I've read his posts and don't claim to know any more about the business than he does, but I'm skeptical about certain assertions. I believe that Donaire is in a position to offer preferences. No, he doesn't have anywhere near the clout of the stars you mentioned, but he does have some
say. Some evidence for this are the comments he's been making about Rigo for over a year now.
Why would Nonito say the things he's been saying if he doesn't have some input? Are you claiming he's a that much of a s
hit-talker? He could've just done what JuanMa did for a while when asked about a Gamboa fight: "Boxing is a business. My promoter makes all the decisions." Instead, Donaire has shot Guillermo down at every turn. So, either Nonito has some say in whom he fights, or he's just a s
hit-talking loudmouth who pulls the chain of all boxing fans in general and his fans in particular. I don't have high regard for Donaire anymore, but I'm not ready to accept he's that
