WBO/WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8KOs) says there is no interest in moving up in weight to pursue a fight with Abner Mares, who last Saturday stopped Daniel Ponce De Leon for the WBC featherweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Rigondeaux is fresh from his twelve round unanimous decision win over Nonito Donaire.

"Absolutely not [I am not moving up]. I plan to stay at 122-pounds," Rigondeaux told George Ebro. "It's just that I'm naturally a 122-pounder. I eat and eat, but do not get fat. Thank God I do not spend my time suffering to make weight like other fighters. So I have no reason to leave the division in which I have proved my qualifications and in which I feel the most comfortable."

"Whoever is in my division, whoever has the titles, whoever wants them...let me know. I'm here. I think there are plans to make a fight in Miami, my people are talking to Top Rank to see what they can do."

[QUOTE=whoseyourdaddy]I did not get your point:dunno:....Isn't that what I just stated? but thanks for your input.[/QUOTE] What I'm saying is Marquez moving up from super featherweight to lightweight is not the same thing as Rigo moving up from super bantamweight as Marquez was not small at th...

Fanboys always reaching. He is not afraid, he is not shook, he just like to fight at a weight he is comfortable. He walks around 122, let him enjoy what he do there.
