Donaire to fight Rigo on April 27

It seems that Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire will not be given his wish to fight Abner first but instead it would be against Guillermo Rigondeaux which he wanted to fight only after Abner Mares.

In a post written by Ronnie Natanielsz of Boxing Arum mention for an April fight.

In a post fight interview with Larry Merchant right after Donaires big win against Jorge Arce he said that he is interested with fighting abner Mares first and then Guillermo Ridondeaux. Since Mares is under GBP the fight he wanted is second to impossible. As expected he will be fighting Rigo.

Guillermo Rigondeaux at 11-0-0 (KO 8) record lacks the experience. But this kid has superb talent that made him so popular that fans as early 2011 talking already about this match-up.

In earlier interviews, Donaire dismissed the idea of fighting Rigo. He reasoned out that Rigo really needs to fight more quality opponents to prove himself worthy as an opponent.

I think Donaire has a point. If you see Rigo has only a total of 11 fights. 11 is 11, even if how good he is. A fight with Donaire is no doubt the greatest challenge to his young career. A loss would only mean how overrated he is.
