and if you compare rigo & donaire's last five fights, it's rigo whos been fighting bums, donaire's been fighting champions. donaire makes the champions look like bums when he fights them

I'm not comparing them at all. I am solely talking about Donaire. Donaire is fighting bums. Btw, from my understanding people won't fight Rigo.

I've watched the last 3 Donaire fights and he won't fight people that can through back. If he doesn't fight Mares/Moreno or Rigo next than I'm not watching anymore of his fights.

nishioka's corner stopped the fight in the 8th round after a nice counter from donaire knocked him down. he was actually winning that round prior to the knockdown

Donaire is a joke. He doesn't want to fight Rigo, you could hear it in his voice and bs explanation.

he's got a point, look at rigo's record..he has struggled against the best fighter he's fought his last 10 fights (cordoba) and fought bums & prospects the rest of the way.

i want to see rigo fight any of the top 6 guys in the bantamweight division before he fights donaire.

guy is a two time gold medal winner and a WBA champ...after a few more fights he will be close to getting old. if you wanna fight the best than take the fight.

Personally, I think Donaire is very overrated as a boxer. Sooner or later he will be exposed. Just a matter of who will be the first to do it.

Nice win by Nonito Donaire. He just defeated the best fighter in the 122 lbs weight division.

Much rather see Donaire vs Arce than Donaire vs Rigo. Nonito feels the same way I do about Rigo, he's fucking boring. Plus we've already seen what happens when Rigo gets hurt (watch his SD over Coroboda), he gets on his bike and never gets off. It won't be uneventful like Nonito's last three opponents who didn't want to engage.

To me, it's all about good match ups. I don't care about rankings and so called "important fights".

Rigo and his 11 win ass will be just another "bum" on Donaire's resume.

You're saying that guys like Nishioka, Mathebula, Vasquez and Narvaez can't throw back? Watch their previous fights before fighting Donaire. There's a reason why Donaire's recent opponents are too cautious to throw punches. After Donaire KO'd Montiel, the rest of the guys he fought were either got knocked down trying or on the defensive mode all night avoiding Donaire's punches losing all the rounds.

As soon as Donaire stops cherrypicking guys he will be exposed. Who knows though, he may do this for his entire career. Guy has all types of holes in his defense and a good fighter is going to expose them.

Donaire's last 6 opponents:

Nishioka - WBC Super Bantamweight champion
Mathebula - IBF Super Bantamweight champion
Vasquez Jr - former WBO Super Bantamweight champion
Narvaez - WBO Jr. Bantamweight champion
Montiel - WBC and WBO Bantamweight champion
Sydorenko - WBC Super Flyweight champion

=

Cherry picker!

Maybe you guys could tweet Bob Arum and tell him to feed his 11-win prospect to Donaire so we can add him on the list of champions Donaire cherry picked.
