Now Im not saying Rigo will win base on that, my take is that Donaire wins a close UD base on activity.
It seems what doanire fans are hoping is for Rigo's chin to not hold up against Donaire's power, cuz thats the only x factor here. If rigo's chin is up to the challenge then donaire is in a wolrd of shit. I mean it will be streches when Donaire will swing for air and not lay a glove on Rigo. I mean when Vazquez Jr boxed against Donaire he made him look bad for streches, Donaire couldnt lay a decent glove on small ass narvaes. Imagine what rigo can do to this guy.
The notion that Donaire will win and easily is ridiculous and wishful thinking. This is a 50/50 fight, that if both guys play to their strengths it will be very close.
Like I said I got donaire in a close fight because of activoty and Donaire is a smart fighter and knows how to still rounds.
I agree on practically everything. One of the most overused lines on this site is "so-and-so will destroy
so-and-so." This isn't Mike Tyson versus Michael Spinks. These are two excellent, well-matched fighters with similar qualities and some individual strengths of their own. I'm with you: I give the edge to Donaire, but this is practically a 50-50 fight where anything can happen.
