Rigondeaux Eyes Bakhtin in March After Ramos on 1/20

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Super bantamweight contender Guillermo Rigondeaux (8-0, 6KOs) is planning to stay more active in 2012. After fighting only one time in 2011, there are plans being made to have him fight twice in the first three months of 2012, according to the Cuban boxer's manager Gary Hyde. As BoxingScene.com had previously reported, Rigondeaux's fight with WBA champion Rico Ramos is being rescheduled to January 20th. Hyde confirmed a recent BoxingScene report regarding negotiations to face Alexander Bakhtin on a March date in Moscow, Russia.

"First Rigo will face Ramos. When he beats him, he'll go to Moscow to face Bakhtin in March," Hyde told Luis Sanchez.

Bakhtin (28-0, 11KOs) was going to fight this weekend, but the entire card was canceled to avoid any injuries with a date against Rigondeaux being a good possibility for early 2012.

Anyone know how old the dude in the white clothes is? The guy in the pictures with Rigo? He looks 50 but has the shape of a 22 year old. Dude looks great for his age!!
