Rigondeaux: I Can KO All of Donaire's Foes in One Day!

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Undefeated former Olympic champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (11-0 with 8 KOs) of Cuba said he is very confident of overcoming unified 122-pound Filipino champ Nonito Donaire (31-1, 20 KOs) on April 13 in New York. Rigondeaux feels disrespected by some of the recent comments that came from Donaire and his trainer Robert Garcia.

"Nonito doesn't really know a true double Olympic champion. He better be well be prepared, because on April 13 I'm going to [hit him with] him a lot of leather. He has not fought anybody. He faced a group of dead men, and I'm able to knock out all of them in one day," Rigondeaux told The Zone Radio. "Donaire will be surprised. I'm going to take him into deep water and then I'll [sink] the boat. He talks about his speed, but he still doen't know how to slow down my speed."

Rigondeaux says training camp is going very well with new coach Pedro Diaz.

"I feel very good with Pedro. He worked with me when I was on the Cuban national team and he knows what to do with Donaire," Rigondeaux said.

[QUOTE=SoggyLungs;13177108]yah 11 guys and most of them are bums and prospects lol....[/QUOTE] Rigondeaux defected from Cuba at a later age than most because of their countries policies. Rigondeaux has fought some good fighters in his 11 fights.

Rigondeaux might be able to KO DOnaire's last 4 opponents in one day but that doesn't mean he will KO Donaire. The match-up is between Donaire and Rigondeaux, that's what Rigo needs to focus on.

[QUOTE=AnKhang;13177051]He couldn't even KO all his 11 bouts. Not to mention all 11 are mediciore compared to some of the names in Donaire's resumé. Rigo as usual is just talking out of his a$$ again.[/QUOTE] everyone he's fought has hit…
