Rigondeaux To Donaire: A Barking Dog Does Not Bite!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (11-0, 8KOs) is not concerned with the boasts of WBO champion Nonito Donaire (31-1, 20KOs) and his trainer Robert Garcia. Donaire and Garcia have mentioned how their advantage in power, and skill, will send the two-time Olympic gold medal winner running for cover. Both Donaire and Garcia predict an explosive knockout victory on April 13th at Radio City Music Hall in New York. The super bantamweight unification will be televised by HBO.

"The preparation has gone well, we're at the end, where we are putting in the finishing touches, but basically I can get in the ring with Nonito right now and beat him up. I can say that I'm at 99.99 percent," Rigondeaux told George Ebroe. "We have adjusted our tactics, we experimented with several things and finally we are left with what we think will help us get the win. My trainer, Pedro Luis Diaz, has not neglected any detail. Nothing will surprise us. We are prepared to surprise him."

"Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but none of them are getting in the ring and no one is living in my skin or follows my destiny. Let them talk and then when it's all over we'll see what they have to say. A barking dog does not bite. [Donaire] is another fighter who has to sell himself so he can get to the fight with some confidence. On April 13th we'll see if he is better than me. I want to see how that dog will bark that day.''

Rigondeaux is not one doing all the barking so I hope he doesn't run scared all night come April 13.

[QUOTE=ComicDon;13219046]It's funny he says that considering he has been the one doing the most barking.[/QUOTE] Yes, Rigo was Barking about 2/3 fight ago at donaire. And Donaire refused to Bark back just saying, he's not known enough & hasn't done…
