Rigondeaux: A Fight With Mares Would Have To Be at 122

By Ryan Burton

WBA/WBO super bantamweight king Guillermo Rigondeaux paid a recent visit to BoxingScene Radio to talk about a variety of topics including upcoming fights in and around his division.

Rigondeaux walks around close to the super bantamweight limit of 122 pounds and made it clear that he won't be moving up in weight anytime soon. 

On Saturday WBC featherweight champion Abner Mares face former champion Jhonny Gonzalez in Southern California. Rigondeaux said that if Mares is successful, he would love to face him. He did however say that the only way that fight could take place is at the super bantamweight weight limit. 

"I don't have any problems making 122.  There are other fighters that have problems making 126 but I am not one of them.  I am the king of the division.  I am a pound for pound fighter and if they want to fight me they need to come to me.

"I think it would be a tremendous fight (versus Mares) but if we were too fight it would have to be at 122.  I don't have any problem making 122 so I am not moving," Rigondeaux told BoxingScene Radio.
