Donaire weighed in at 121.6 pounds, with Rigondeaux at 121.5, for the 122-pound fight. Their bout is the only fight on the card that HBO will broadcast, but Top Rank will stream the undercard live starting at 7:00 pm EDT. HBO will go live at 11:00 pm EDT.
Donaire (31-1, 20 KO) is the favorite against Rigondeaux (11-0, 8 KO), but it's a compelling fight on paper, and the winner will stand out as the true king in the division.
