Rigondeaux Would Face Lomachenko at Catch-Weight

By Ryan Burton

WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8KOs) walks around only a few pounds heavier than the 122 pound super bantamweight limit. The Cuban has said in the past that he wasn't interested in moving up to featherweight because he makes weight so easy.

Vic Salazar of Tha Boxing Voice and I recently caught up with the two-time Olympic Gold medallist to get his thoughts on the possibility of him facing fellow gold medal winner Vasly Lomachenko (1-0, 1KO), who campaigns in the featherweight division.

Rigondeaux said that if the money was right he would have no problem accepting the fight.

"That would be a big fight. I think a lot of people would want to see it.  We can make that fight happen. They need to talk to me about the numbers (money) for the fight. We could meet in the middle. Maybe at 124. If the money is right why not?" Stated Rigondeaux.

If rigo goes to golden boy, thank goodness if this happens. I really love to hear how schaefer will sell this boy. He already said the thing about lara. Imagine lara and rigo in the same card. It would be…

lamo would need to take the fight early because who's to say rigo won't go to gplden boy after his last fight with arum? (that would need to be lamos very next fight if he gets past salido)

Rigo would get sonned. Not a good fight to take so early though, I haven't seen Rigo's last fight but I heard there were about 30 fans or less in the stands. Kid needs some fans.
