Not saying he's a cheat, but his actions have been a little suspicious because they verbally agreed on VADA testing a long time ago right at the beginning of the negotiations.
Nonito is one of the few boxers who has year round drug testing so everyone who fights him must take the test. Rigo and his team knew that a long time ago so why the delay? Just makes you wonder. But hey, it could all be a publicity stunt to help hype the fight even more - who knows..
The bold is untrue. This is the first time Donaire has demanded one of his opponents agree to the same VADA testing he takes. Everyone else had the option, which none agreed to, as far as I know. Rigo signed within a reasonable time, as the VADA agreement he received wasn't in Spanish. It was reasonable that the man want to read a legal document in his own language. Regardless...the fight is on!
