NONITO DONAIRE RUMORS

Weekend Afterthoughts On Nonito Donaire, Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr., More

When’s the last time we had any Weekend Afterthoughts around here? Maybe enough time to let neogrunge fashion become a thing. This past weekend had few U.S. televised fights of any note, with most of the most meaningful fights off TV. There was this knockout by Amir Imam of Fernando Angulo, which has the final visuals of a major knockout and dynamic of a momentous knockout for...

Billy Goat Gruff: Donaire Vs. Vetyeka Preview And Prediction

This is how chock full of boxing this weekend is: One of the best 10 or 15 fighters alive — from one of the most boxing-mad countries on the planet — is fighting Saturday on HBO against perhaps the #1 fighter in his division, and it’s been overshadowed by Carl Froch vs. George Groves II to the point of total eclipse.

It was not the strongest performance of Donaire’s career, as a determined Darchinyan sought a vestige of revenge for the pairs first bout in 2009. Alas history would again rewrite itself as the same exact punch that disposed of Darchinyan in...

Prediction: Can Rigondeaux Soar With A Win Over Agbeko

ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - Win Guillermo Rigondeaux derailed Nonito Donaire’s meteoric rise to win the WBO super bantamweight belt in decisive fashion he should have been heralded as the next star, but he wasn’t. His defensive minded, strike and move style was deemed boring and non fan-friendly. It’s safe to say life as the champion in the post-Donaire era hasn’t been the plush...
