Go alone man. There is nothing wrong with that.

I usually go to sporting events with friends but if I can't find anyone who knows/enjoys the sport than I would rather go alone. Anyone else will talk rubbish the whole time and ruin it.

Same here. i would often go see pay per view boxing fights at some sport bar by myself because most of my friends dont care about it and are more into MMA. I had no problem with it

yea, I think that is the right move. I'm gonna pitch it again this Saturday and then I'm just gonna buy a ticket. I've never been to a boxing match before and tickets are 35/75/150/300. That is definitely a steal. Good thing about going alone is we don't have to compromise on what ticket to get. I wanna be as close as possible to watch Donaire get knocked out!

There's a better chance than that.

Anytime you get 2 counterpunchers against one another, it usually doesn't produce fireworks. It should be an interesting fight moreso than exciting. I'm really curious how Rigo deals with Donaire's speed and power.

Refresh my memory, that was basically Cordoba chasing Rigondeaux around the ring right?

If so, I agree. Once Rigo tastes Donaire's power, I expect him to box very carefully.

I doubt it, he's gonna wanna trade with Rios and revenge the last fight.
