Rigondeaux Angry: I Will Shut Nonito Donaire's Mouth

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (11-0, 8KOs) is getting a little upset with Nonito Donaire's statements. Rigondeaux will face Donaire (31-1, 20KOs), the WBO champion, on April 13th at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. In a recent interview with ESPN, Donaire said boxers like Fernando Montiel and Abner Mares are opponents than Rigondeaux. He says the Cuban champion is very experienced as an amateur, but doesn't have enough knowledge in the pros.

Rigondeaux, a two-time Olympic gold medal winner, told the same outlet that Donaire is underestimating him.

"This [fight] is a golden opportunity for my career. I'll be facing the best at 122 pounds, and he's earned [that position]. [But] If he think I'm easy, then I'm going to win. He has not fought anybody and playing a guitar and then playing a violin is not the same thing. I'm going to shut that stubborn Filipino's mouth and I will unify the titles," said Rigondeaux.

[QUOTE=richardt;13223706]This fight really is a 50-50 if there ever was one because each guy brings something different.It could be one-sided either way, or an early KO because one is a vicious head puncher and the other a vicious body puncher.…
