Rigondeaux Puts The Pressure on Leo Santa Cruz

Super-bantamweight kingpin Guillermo Rigondeaux has blasted the other recognized champions in the division for refusing to fight him. The reigning WBA Super and WBO world champion blasted out Sod Kokietgym in the first round of their bout on Saturday night in Macau.

The 33-year-old is not happy with current WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz and IBF hotshot Kiko Martinez for turning down the opportunity of a unification clash to determine the undisputed number one in the division.

“I am frustrated that the two other champions in my division – Leo Santa Cruz and Kiko Martinez – will not step up to fight me in title unifications to determine the true world champion. I do not understand that mindset,” said Rigondeaux.

“How do you not want to prove you are the best? I do. Nonito Donaire did when we fought in our title unification battle in New York last year. The fans deserve better from Santa Cruz and Martinez. The media should be holding them accountable.

“A real champion fights and accepts the challenges from the best in his division. Back in the day, world champions accepted the top challenges. I get criticized by the media for my style of fighting. Maybe the media should be criticizing the champions who deny the fights boxing fans crave."

Fuck Rigo. Boxing isn't what it used to be. Now everyone wants to land and run. Bunch of faggots.

Does Rigo really think they're going to let him ruin every little man franchise out there?

Rigondeaux vs. Santa Cruz is the perfect co-feature for Mayweather vs. Maidana II
