Gary Hyde, the manager of junior featherweight titleholder Guillermo Rigondeaux, informed BoxingScene.com that his client is first in line to face the reigning king of the division, Nonito Donaire.
Rigondeaux (11-0, 8 KOs) has been the frontrunner to land the Apr. 13 bout, but fellow 122-pound titlist Abner Mares and his team have made their case to face Donaire (31-1, 20 KOs).
