Rigondeaux dethroned the 2012 fighter of the year in New York City.

Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8 KO) stunned the boxing world with his lopsided decision win over reigning Boxing Writers Association of America Fighter of the Year Nonito Donaire inside of Radio City Music Hall this past Saturday night on HBO.

It was a near virtuoso performance for the 32-year-old Cuban, who never seemed troubled by anything the Filipino Flash threw at him. Short of a flash knockdown in the 10th round, the fight was dominant, convincing and truly stunning in its ease.

The win establishes Rigondeaux as the best super bantamweight in the world and will likely result in Donaire jumping to featherweight to pursue new challenges.
