Rigondeaux on Donaire: I Will KO The Top Rank Traitor!

By Peter Sciretta

WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (9-0, 7KOs) has issued a response to an earlier article on BoxingScene.com, where Nonito Donaire (27-1, 18KOs) took a pass on facing the Cuban boxer at a later date. Donaire explained that he wants an exciting opponent who comes to trade punches, and not an opponent who will generate a boring match like Argentine veteran Omar Narvaez.

"If he doesn't want a Narvaez fight, I will agree to a 15-foot ring. This guy is not a real man, he's a traitor to Top Rank. Stop hiding behind your manager and your wife, I'm ready to fight in the summer. If Top Rank allows me to get a fight with this traitor, I will put him to sleep. After I get done with this traitor, he'll be shooting pictures permanently," Rigondeaux said.

Donaire returns on February 4th at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. He faces Wilfedo Vazquez Jr. for the vacant WBO super bantamweight title.

Knowing Nonito, I bet he'd just shrugged this trash talk. I just dont know about his wife though. :439:
