A source within junior featherweight Guillermo Rigondeaux’s camp insists reports from various media outlets linking known (and hopefully reformed) ex-PED peddler Angel Heredia to his camp are false.
“Someone masquerading as a member of Team Rigondeaux has been saying Rigo is working with people he is not working with,” the source told me. “Rigo’s strength and conditioning trainer is DJ Montanocordoba. He’s like a brother to him. It’s not going to change anytime soon.”
Meanwhile, an article posted today Boxingscene.com suggests TBRB junior featherweight champion Nonito Donaire would request for Rigondeaux to submit to random PED testing should the two meet as proposed in 2013. While Donaire has been the unparalleled leader of the sport in submitting himself to year-round voluntary anti-doping testing, this would seem to mark the first occasion he would be requesting an opponent do likewise (though it remains unclear whether or not Donaire would take the fight regardless).
“Not a problem,” the source told me in regards to the testing request. “He’s did it his entire amateur career. It would not be a stumbling block to the fight at all.”
While random PED tests in this increasingly disturbing era of PED suspicion should be commended, it is equally important to recognize all the facts on a case-by-case basis. If Rigondeaux truly is unaffiliated in any professional way with Angel Heredia, it would be only Nonito Donaire with a former PED peddler in his corner, Victor Conte.
no way! that source sure does have the inside scoop doesnt he? lol an unnamed source is as reliable as a 3 card monte dealer. the 50 year old cuban or whatever he is sure cant control his camp. he had one clown from his camp insulting donaires family female friend. well little donaire heard about it and went to the hotel room to smack some sense into the clown. Rigo should be swimming back to cuba to escape communism once again pretty soon since R castro relaxed the state monopoly on business. cuba and her brand new private sector increased big time.(legalize the damn cohibas) watch the capitol flow free as it reaches the hand of the people in cuba. watch the capitol here slow down into the beauracratic abyss know as THE STATE. most cubans that came here the illegal way, lie about their age and excuse themselves for the cheating they do. they left their prime years in the hands of the state so when they finally taste freedom they do whatever they can to cash in.
WOW! Everybodee and dey momma are on to the falling Angel Heredia. And Victor Conte is reformed. And besides -- and I'll keep spittin' it -- that PEDs-and-roids jive does not work in boxing. Boksing is about skills to pay the bills. And if you don't have that, only mad talent - for a little while -- will gecha over da bumps and hills. Later for injecting, rubbing and pills. If you ain't game, dat turkey jive will not help you get fame.
NEWS FLASH: That jive is for making lacking-natural-development-muscles bodies into eye candy. For whuppin' arses and knocking 'em out, it is not handy. Just ask any light-punching boxer who got on dat poison.
You muthasuckas need to do some research. Starting in the 1980s, a whole lot of less skilled-and-talented pugilists got on PEDs and roids because of the hype. But that syet didn't improve them in a single fight.
That's RIGHT! I said IT! Managers, trainers, promoters and dey ugly silver-haired great grandpappies were sponsoring, babysitting and feeding fighters that syet. YUP! I'm snitchin!' Straight-UP!!! Like Super Sugar Ray Leonard said he'd feed a fighter dat jive and whup his arse for the right prize. He did whup fighters' arses who were on dat junk-science jive. He just didn't feed 'em.
PEDs and roids have a long history in our seedy legal mayhem sport. Y'all oughta ask somebody. C'mon TSS Investigative Pugilistic Journalist S-To, I'm callin' you OUT to go and do what you do -- FIND THOSE DEEP-HIDDEN SECRETS, and bring 'em light, and OO, SH*T responses outta those who thought and thinks it was never SO! Holla,
Wow! Yall muthasuckas heard Deepwater! Scrolled up! He scribbled what I was saying six and seven years ago about the Cubans coming to mainland USA and de-aging. I guess boating from Cuba to the USA makes 'em have more miracles than "The Miracle on 34th Street." Hehe! Holla
C'mon, SouthPaul! Dude is doing dat name tricky wicky. Normally he'd drop his pops's name of Cordoba and just use his mother's name of Montano. But that would not get him that "HELL" reply that he hoped for, and that you gave. Dude pull an optical illusion on you without spiking your drink with that Cuban rum. Holla!
In 1980 Castro emptied many hospitals, and prisons, while rounding up political dissidents and economic refugees to be sent to the United States on a flotilla of boats and barges and various watercraft piloted by Cubans from Miami. A decent percentage of the so-called felons were political activists and revolutionaries who didn't fit in with the communist regime. Over all 125,000 refugees made their way from Cuba to our shores even though the Coast Guard and Navy was deployed en masse to intercept them. and this was only one of the exoduses from Cuba,
everybody in this country comes from somewhere else except the indians.
(just a little history since the subject popped up).... back to Rigondeaux..
According to reports some truly bad blood is continuing to building up between Donaire and Rigo, Partly due to Rigo constanly referring to Donaire as a scared fighter (he recently toned down the smack talk as not to talk himself out of a fight by being disrespectful) and partially because a female member of Donaires entourage was allegedly harrassed by someone from the Rigondeaux Camp......
This promped Donaire to call Rigo's hotel room after hearing about the incident,.....it was Montanocordoba who appologized to Donaire profusely (because of the language barrier) saying that Rigo and most of his entourage don't even drink or hang out with loud rowdy packs of inebriated trouble makers..
But no doubt something happened and whomever the guilty part was.... is more than likely associated with Rigo's camp.
When and if the 2 fighters meet,... I wonder how Rigo is going to negate Donaires wicked left hook,.. which is blinding fast and capable of debilitating anybody within 20 lbs weight range I'm sure.
I also wonder how Donaire is going to cope with Rigos laser-like straight left... They say he's a one-arm fighter but apparently he's so good with it,... it's all he needs. This is going to be a fight for the boxing purists... the mutual respect they have for each others skills will probably create a slow tactical confrontation early,... between spurts of heavy artillary being fired when somebody slips-up.. Don't expect Kirkland vs Angulo or you'll probably be dissappointed. Expect a masterful display of boxing while it lasts.
Nice work, but even the "INDIANS" are not originals of the U.S. mainland. From Asia, they crossed the Bering Strait doing the Ice Age to become the first human settlers, according to written history. Holla!
I need a Puerto Rico history lesson, Radam. You ever give anyone a mouth tune up on that island ? I'm asking cuz I pulled the trigger on some flights for weekend of Juanma's return. Never been. Holla', son, and don't make me wait too long else I'll commit boxing forum adultery . Don't force me back to my old flame!
