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."

[QUOTE=nycsmooth]Rigo's ok as long as he doesn't move to '26 as he'd lose to John's and Russell jr, once Jr's peeps stop breast feeding him...[/QUOTE] Rigondeaux schools Russell. He gives him a boxing 101 lesson all day!

Here's a video of Bakhtin. Action starts at 4:00.

Rigo needs to stay active. I don't know anything about Bahktin. He has a good record though.

Rigo vs Mares or Arce are both fights that could potentially make Rigo look not too fond of a clash with Moreno even though hes arguably as skilled as Rigo it could be a bore fest for the casuals

[QUOTE=Cubanborn87]rigons walk around weigh is probably not even 126 he is too small for that division[/QUOTE] I agree I think he would easily move down to 118 if he wanted to.
