Rigondeaux Signed To Caribe, Looking For Co-Promoter

By Ryan Burton

As has been reported many times over, WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux's co-promotional agreement with Top Rank expired after his first round knockout of Sod Kokietgym on Saturday evening in Macau.

Contrary to various media reports, the two-time Olympic gold medalist is however still under contract with Caribe Promotions. 

BoxingScene.com was contacted by Caribe Promotions Vice President Louis Fonseca and Caribe Promotions lawyer Jared Lopez to clarify their position with Rigondeaux and to make it known that they are open to listening to offers to co-promote the talented Cuban.

"Even though various media outlets have characterized Rigo as a free agent, he is under a valid, legally enforceable contract with Caribe Promotions. We did have a co-promotional agreement with Top Rank that has expired. That has been well publicized. Naturally we are going to be looking to sign Rigo to a new co-promotional deal," Lopez explained.

Lopez said that any promoter interested in discussing a co-promotional deal should contact Caribe Promotions and that they will meet with Rigondeaux's team which includes his manager Gary Hyde and make a decision in the near future.

"We want to make sure the record is clear going forward so that there are no misunderstandings with respect to other promoters who may want to make offers for Mr. Rigondeaux's services. We are willing to listen to all offers for Rigo's services. After we hear all the offers we will sit down with Rigo's team and make a decision," Lopez told BoxingScene.com.

[QUOTE=***1048;ATAS;14788986]I think the USA should use Rigondeaux for their National Missile Defense system. I just don't see any Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles penetrating Rigo's defense. Too slick.[/QUOTE] Lmfao that's hilarious and original!!

Rigo need to drop these dudes. Who knows what the hell they made him sign though? If he owes them he should of bought himself out with that Too Rank contract. He won't see money like that ever again.
