Rigondeaux Likely To Return on July 19th in Macau

By Ryan Burton has been advised that the return of WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8KOs) will likely take place on July 19th in Macau, China.  The plan is for most of Top Rank's Olympic Medalists to appear on the card and would include two-time gold medal winner Zou Shiming, 2012 Brazilian silver medalist Esquiva Falcao, and 2012 Japanese Gold medal winner Ryota Murata.

Rigondeaux last fought on December 7th in Atlantic City when he defeated Joseph Agbeko via unanimous decision.
