BOL. Not sure what to make of this yet. People def. seem to hate and undervalue Rigo for no real reason. But then, every time someone doubts Nonito, they wind up looking foolish. 

Can't wait for it, though.

I like both guys, but I will place a very big bet on nonito here, rigondeaux is as good defensivley as one can be, but if you saw his last fight and a few others as well, everytime he was hit with a solid shot he was shook, both are elite counterpunchers, but I think that nonito will be much busier throughout, the number 1 difference in this fight, will be the chin, when have we ever seen nonito wobbled? never, as his chin is solid, this is obviously not the case with ridondeaux.  nonito will use his jab,to controll things during the dead time and in rigondeaux fights their are plent of that, and when they do exchange, I think nonito is a slightly better counterpuncher with a much,much better chin, both have very good power, maybe rigondeaux has slightly more, but nonito has proven to be able to take it, nonito clearly knows that his chin is better and he has never been afraid to exchange and he uses his footwork to get in and out expertly, the only way rigondeaux can win this one is by ko, and this simply is not going to happen,  I belive that this fight will actually get embarassing for rigondeaux as he has been one of the best amateurs ever and a solid pro,and a dominate athlete his whole life, but in this fight he will be staggered on a regular basis and I think will get tko ed, I will bet heavy on nonito to win outright and a medium play on nonito by ko as I do fear that rigondeaux might go into survival mode and if that is the case no one will ko him......but in the end nonito will be dominate.
