Saturday April 13, Bloody Elbow presents live fight coverage of HBO World Championship Boxing featuring Nonito Donaire vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. HBO World Championship Boxing Donaire vs. Rigondeaux airs this Saturday, April 13 at 11:00 p.m. ET. Bloody Elbow will have live fight night coverage, including results and discussion.
One of boxing's pound for pound best, Nonito Donaire is coming off an incredible 2012. That year saw him topple 4 of the division's best with increasingly brutal performances, culminating in a 3rd round KO of Jorge Arce. Those wins, combined with his strong anti-doping stance, earned him Fighter of the Year honors for 2012 in the eyes of many. He's steadily climbed up the ranks to become one of the best in the world, and is the obvious favorite here.
But don't let Guillermo Rigondeaux's small record fool you - he is a legitimate threat to Donaire. Next to Abner Mares, he's the toughest opponent for Donaire. The Cuban fighter is a highly decorated amateur with two Olympic gold medal wins. He's had a successful transition to the pro scene, going undefeated in his 4 year pro career. He is undoubtedly a legitimate talent, but still will have his work cut out for him against The Filipino Flash.
This will be the only fight shown on the HBO broadcast.
Join us here at Bloody Elbow for Donaire vs. Rigondeaux results, discussion, and live fight coverage this Saturday, April 13.
