Caribe: Donaire-Rigondeaux Terms Have Been Reached

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Boris Arencibia, CEO of Caribe Promotions and co-promoter to Guillermo “The Jackal” Rigondeaux, has advised BoxingScene.com that all of the outstanding issues have been ironed out, and a deal for a super bantamweight unification with Nonito Donaire has been finalized for April 13th on HBO. The venue has yet to be determined, with California, Texas and New York City in the running.

Caribe and Rigondeaux's other co-promoter, Top Rank, were involved in a legal dispute over the Cuban star's promotional contract. The majority of the issues were resolved on Friday, and earlier today the rest of the outstanding problems were worked out.

“We are very happy to communicate that all of the details that remained on Friday were finally resolved. Caribe Promotions, along with Top Rank, are convinced the career of Rigondeaux will now travel in the best direction to accomplish his goals," said Arencibia.

“Earlier today, Rigondeaux was the center of attention along with the Mayor of the Miami City. We are determined to turn Rigondeaux into the principal representative of Cuban sports in Miami, and these type of events are part of our overall goal to position the boxer closer to the community."

“After obtaining the agreement to finalize the fight, where both Donaire and Rigondeaux will place their titles on the line, we wanted to invite the entire Cuban community living in the United States to be present at this event with Cuban flags in their hands in a display of support for one of the most talented Cuban fighters of all time."

"We at Caribe Promotions want nothing but the best for Rigondeaux and we never tried to obstruct his career, and the finalization of this fight is an example of that. Now the main objective is to have Rigondeaux in the best shape possible for this fight, which is one of most important that any Cuban boxer has been involved in. We are going to work thoroughly to make sure Rigondeaux has all of the necessary conditions to have the best training camp of his career."
