Thank for your post....

bumping again because this was pretty much the reasoning behind my prediction for the Donaire/Rigo fight.

Consistently good poster. - ddangerous  cheers m8 - hougigo  knows his stuff - jas  great poster - jas

Well I mean compare these two:

Rigondeaux
Audley Harrison

Sometimes an amateur pedigree is good, but sometimes it can harm you. Amir Khan is a good example

Maybe for the case of Rigondeaux, it's just his natural skill as a fighter, amateur or not

Like I said in another thread, it depends on the fighter. When you try to dismiss someone as skilled as Rigo cause he's an "amateur" its dumb.

The example I used was Zou Shiming, 2 time gold medalist but when you look at his "skillset" do you really think he's gonna make it in the pros? Regardless of age or not.

Amir Khan too, very successful amateur but he can't use his tools for sh1t so he gets sh1tted on. I'm a fan but still, its the truth.
