I agree that Donaire's power is a concern, and that Rigo's chin doesn't inspire confidence, but there's this growing notion that all Nonito has to do is hit Guillermo once on the chin and the fight is over. It's way overdone. While Donaire has the power to KO almost anyone with one shot, it's not a forgone conclusion that it'll happen to Rigo on the night of April 13.
Especially since that almost never happens at this level. And when it does, its usually when its not expected. Maybe Donaire does stop Rigondeaux with a single shot, but it will almost definitely not be so simple as, "Rigo can't take a single hard punch from Donaire."
