If he wants the bigger fights, he'll have to move up, but ya he's really small. 140 is out of the question for him. Maybe 130 and that's pushing it.

He's 32 and fights at 122. He wont move up almost 20 pounds. He can probably max out at 130 for some good comp still.

He can fight Mikey Garcia.

When everyone was picking Donaire, it's an upset. And the way he just got dominated other than one minute of round 10, it's an upset.

fair enough. I was giving Donaire a slight edge before the fight but i wouldnt have been surprised with either one winning. I was surprised at how Rigondeaux neutralized his whole offence though

Leo Sta Cruz "The Next Margarito" vs. Guillermo Rigodeaux will be the next big fight in the 122 lbs weight division.

Canelo and Broner have the best chances. But Donaire? Didn't you say he would be bigger than Pacman? such a ridiculous statement. There's only two dudes in boxing that makes the world stop when the fight and pull our their wallets to see them and that's Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

They can draw one million buys, for a sparring session. Guys like Canelo, Broner and Donaire, have yet to sell one PPV.

And I'll be in San Antonio for the Canelo-Trout fight on 4/20

I think he could have been bigger than Pac had he kept winning. He's much more entertaining than Pac, he speaks better and is not a robot like Pac when it comes to interviews.

After this match, he would have gone on to a regular PPV performer (I think.) It was perfect, in NYC, Radio City Music Hall, but the opposite happened. He got toyed with on the biggest stage he'd ever been on.

Canelo and Broner are 22 and 23, and both should be PPV regulars later in the year if the same that happened to Donaire doesn't happen.

Canelo winning vs. Trout sets up a match with maybe Cotto on PPV in the coming months. If he loses, we'll see ...

Same with Broner. He's fighting in Brooklyn vs. Paulie. A dominant match and win in New York gets his name bigger in the lights and sets up his first PPV later in the year. And since he isn't owned by one promotion company, he can fight guys from both Golden Boy and Top Rank.

He needs some reality check. Donaire needs to improve his inside fighting. He said that he's moving in the Featherweight Division.





Rigo is just a superior technical boxer than Nonito.

i thought you were gonna pic trout long reach, good boxing skills, decent jab, canelo hasn't fought anybody like him i think. but he will certainly win if the fight is close.
