Cuba's Guillermo Rigondeaux (9-0, 7KOs), the WBA's super bantamweight champion, may face Alexander Bakhtin (28-0, 11KOs) next. Bakhtin is scheduled to return in Moscow on March 31, but its not known if Rigondeaux would be the opponent. There were discussions about this fight earlier in the rumor, but nothing was clear because Rigondeaux was scheduled to fight Rico Ramos on January 21. Rigondeaux knocked Ramos out in six rounds.
"Bakhtin is one of the candidates," confirmed Gary Hyde, the manager of Rigondeaux. "Definitely, it will be a very interesting fight. The possibility of a fight between Alexander and Guillermo is very high."
