And, yeah, I appreciate technical fighters myself, but Rigo has a tendency to go completely inactive. Thatís just boring. I donít care how you slice it. I had some guy argue with me over that point not long ago. I mean, watching an artist paint is one thing. Watching him stare at the canvass is quite another. Lol
Yeah. I think he has the tools to entertain. Great control of distance, timing. Good power, technique and obviously a big arsenal. He's tended to not need it so not use it. Lomachenko understands the value of entertainment more. He gets it and as a result he has a bigger fan base.

Lomo just has a much more exciting style. Heís super-active, fast, skilled. Whatís not to like? Rigo can turn it on when needed. Only, as you said, he usually doesnít need to. Heíll need to on December 9. Should be a good fight.

HBO & Bob Arum done him dirty. A few reporters/journalists have helped push a certain narrative about him.

Many like to blame HBO and Arum for Rigo's lack of popularity. Don't blame them. Blame Rigo and his support team Caribe.

Boxing is in the entertaining business and driven by fans. Fighters who partake in it should realize that. I could go on and on listing all the reasons Rigo has no real fanbase, but it would just be parroting what everyone else knows.

Hard to say HBO did him dirty. Fans weren't entertained when they watched him. I believe he got a headline card and took no chances against Agbeko. He also got a PPV spot on a huge PPV (Canelo-Cotto) and he fought a dull fight there too. It's hard to tell people they must enjoy his style when most are finding it dull.

People just didn't like his style and he didn't really do anything to get more fans. He was content calling out champions but not facing any top contenders and content in winning boring fights. Arum didn't put much effort into Marquez, but at least Marquez fought top contenders and then when he left he switched up his style a little bit. Keeping the technical but looking to be more entertaining.

You are right. I think Rigo is just as good as Loma for his size and age but to fight Loma now at 130 gives Loma the advantage and I expect him to win. It's a great win for Rigo if he wins but I think he will lose and possibly by KO. That won't do his career any good.

" He's a very good fighter, but it's not a very pleasing style." -Arum

Rigo has literally one of the most aesthetically pleasing styles to watch besides Floyd, he's always perfectly composed.

Watching lesser athletes slug it out isn't, contrary to popular opinion, more "pleasing" to watch. It's like saying a Michael Bay film is more pleasing to watch than a David Lynch film because there's more action.

I CAN'T WAIT to see how Loma reacts the first time he gets nailed by Rigo's left. If Rigo's speed carries up with him Loma is going to be in for a long night.
