    Tomorrow night on HBO. Should be a great, highly skilled match with a late KO.

    Fair warning, its a counter puncher vs counter puncher and orthodox vs southpaw so might be boring for those into slugfests.

    rigo completely outclassed nonito. nonito doesn't even want a rematch he wants to move up in weight.

    this guy may reign for a long time

    Only saw first 5 rds, but Donaire looked sluggish. I hope its not cause of Conte & his running coach leaving cause I'm a big Nito fan, hope he comes back sharp.

    Rigo is definitely the goods, too bad he has no comp except Moreno & De La Cruz only if they move up.

    tbh I don't think nonito could have done any better unless he made this an ugly brawl. rigo's counterpunching was way too crisp, the thing you would expect out of a multi time gold medalist.

    I was disappointed that nonito made excuses after the fight but hey its expected from the shock of defeat. rigo's chin is no doubt suspect though, he tapped him and he dropped
