Frampton's Trainer: Carl is Not Ready For Rigondeaux

Barry McGuigan admits Carl Frampton is not ready for Guillermo Rigondeaux, but backs him to beat the other world champions at super-bantamweight.

Rigondeaux holds the WBO and WBA belts following his points win over Nonito Donaire in last weekend's unification clash.

Frampton has world title ambitions of his own and is closing on the division's big names after taking the European title with a dramatic stoppage win over Kiko Martinez in February.

McGuigan, who is Frampton's manager, is confident that the Belfast man can make the step-up to world level, but feels he needs a few more fights before pitting his skills against the classy Cuban.

He told the Ringside Toe 2 Toe podcast: "Few things about Rigondeaux, he's going to be hard to promote. He doesn't draw a big crowd. He's the chairman of the who needs him club.

"From my perspective Carl's not ready for him yet, so we need another year at least to develop Carl.

"It's all about picking the right fights at the right time for your fighter as he comes up through the ranks. Carl's ready to box any of the other world champions, but Rigondeaux is a class act.

"I think he is a wee bit out of our reach at this stage, but he won't always be. At the moment Carl's not ready for him."

^^ I agree and if any top bantamweight or super bantamweight wants to get an HBO paycheck then a fight with Rigo comes at a price: Quigg, Frampton, Moreno, Santa Cruz or Darchinyian just have to roll the dice. That is the modus operandi of HBO - make tv freindly fights with interesting character...

Quigg-Frampton winner vs Rigo. Rigo went to Ireland and blasted Casey, bring him to the UK to blast out whoever wins that fight. It will be a good win, it will make him good money and it will be a sold out arena...he would also increase his fanbase with another top performance. I would be there...

[QUOTE=dan_cov]Fair comment but he'll never be ready for Rigo. Makes no sense for Carl anyway he could fight Quigg in a big domestic showdown for much more money which is probably a winnable fight for him.[/QUOTE] An Rigo can sit ringside if he wished then they could build up a match for him o...

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC]Okay, then what? There just aren't many options to make good money at 122 outside of fighting the champ. But let's assume you're right; Rigo can just continue to outclass every sub-par contender they put in front of him, mostly by KO.[/QUOTE] these guys are young they are go...

[QUOTE=kiaba360]Frampton/Quigg could probably make good money fighting each other, and not to mention the higher chance of getting the W. I think contenders are gonna prefer to go after each other and hope that Rigo loses or age catches up to him.[/QUOTE] Okay, then what? There just aren't man...
