Donaire has the same problem Trinidad had years ago
Back in the day, Tito was whipping guys left and right and he had to move up to fight a olimpic gold medal winner with less than 15 fights. When he took a fight for 4 millions that could cost hom 10millions, he said, this are the ones that get you to the hall fame even though I wont get much credit from the general boxing fan.
Nonito is in the same bout, Rigondeaux is an uknown to the general fan, and for most people in general. Let alone his he only have 11 fights and has fought no-one of notice to the public.
Donaire's stocks could possibly take a hit and they will take a hit. If he wins in impresive fasion, the people will say he destroy and inexperience foe, if he struggles he will get shitted on, because he struggle with an 11 fights fighter and if he loses he will be considered an instant hype job even though we know that isnt the case.
So dont get it twisted folks, this is a great boxing match for us boxing junkies and for Rigo, but Donaire isnt winning much, even if he wins the fight!
