Donaire has not been extremely impressive to me over his last few fights and he doesn't seem quite like the dynamic phenom many were anticipating a couple of years ago. Obviously, still a very good fighter, but top P4P level? Nah.

Maybe finding another really good fighter would allow him to show more than he currently is, but I also don't think that will happen at super bantam. There could be some interesting matchups at featherweight, but he doesn't seem all that keen on moving up. I mean, he is 29... Not exactly getting any younger.

I know he just moved up to super bantam a year ago, but it is a pretty weak division.
I think you are underestimating him a little. IMO he's probably 6 or so on the p4p list(Floyd, ward, manny, Sergio, klitschko)

HE is a counter puncher though so he needs the other guy to engage to be exciting.

And rigo is ridiculously overrated
