WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (11-0) recently appeared on BoxingScene Radio to talk about his upcoming unification fight against Nonito Donaire.

The highly anticipated fight was in danger of not happening when Donaire declared that he would pull out of the fight if Rigondeaux didn't agree to random drug testing throughout their respective training camps. Rigondeaux, perhaps using a little bit of gamesmanship, delayed signing the contract until almost the final hour. He told us that he has no problems with the VADA drug testing.

"I don't mind the tests at all. They can test me whenever I want. They can test me whenever they want. Its not a problem for me," Rigondeax stated.

BoxingScene Radio co-host Luis Sandoval asked the Cuban what type of fight the fans can expect. Many insiders feel that the fight will be a tactical fight as both fighters do their best work while counter punching.

He also asked Rigondeaux if he feels any animosity towards the Filipino since the drug testing issue and also because Donaire had previously said that fights against Abner Mares or Jorge Arce would be bigger than against him.

"This will be a very interesting fight. I think it will be exciting. A great fight. I'm already at 121 pounds. He just needs to worry about making weight.

"I don't have any problems with him. Nonito might have said that I only have 9 fights (at the time) but I am a champion. He can say I don't have a name but I have a belt," said Rigondeaux.

The 32-year-old predicted that he would put a great show on and that this fight will be his coming out party. He also said that he won't be picking and choosing his future opponents should he unify titles and that he is willing to fight anyone.

"I will fight anybody that my promoter puts in front of me. I don't have a problem fighting anyone. I can fight from 118 to 126. All of the fans can expect the best of me on April 13th. It is a very important day and I will give the fans something to talk about," Rigondeaux told BoxingScene Radio.

I'm Cuban and I think Nonito is overrated and Rigo is the greatest of all times........eve tho he only had 11 pro fights.

I'm confident we'll see a great fight here, no matter the outcome. But for these Donut Aire fanboys all I can say is don't expect an easy night for yer bwaaaay. He will get rocked and busted up often, and probably stopped.
