WBO/WBA junior featherweight champion Guillermo "El Chacal" Rigondeaux (14-0) has been quiet since his first round blitzkrieg of Sod Kokietgym (63-3) in July in Macau, China. Rigondeaux's promotional contract expired with Top Rank also expired after the victory.

Rigondeaux has been hailed by boxing purists for his near flawless defensive wizardry but has also received criticism from fans who prefer to watch a brawl than a technical fight which makes his worth to a promoter somewhat difficult to project.
BoxingScene.com caught up with the two-time Olympic gold medalist to get an update on his current promotional status. Various media outlets have speculated that Rigondeaux is on the verge of signing with different promoters but Rigondeaux insists that he and his team are still weighing their options.

"Right now I am at the height of my career. We aren't signed with anyone. We are in a great position. We have a lot of offers on the table but we haven't signed a contract yet. We are still weighing all of the offers. That is part of the business. I will definitely be part of the decision making process. Nothing will be done without my consent. No deal will be agreed to without me being present," said Rigondeaux.

Rigondeaux is still promoted by Caribe Promotions who along with the rest of Team Rigondeaux are currently looking for a promoter with television dates to serve as his co-promoter. Caribe has been with Rigondeaux since he began his professional career in the United States and the Cuban is very satisfied with them and the rest of his team that also includes his manager Gary Hyde and his advisor Alex Bornote.

"I am very happy with my team. I'm happy with Caribe and my manager Gary Hyde. Gary is doing the negotiating but like I said nothing will be agreed to without me being present. I am very involved in the future of my career," Rigondeaux told BoxingScene.com.

The 33-year-old said that there is no time table for when a new promotional deal will be finalized but he hopes to have a deal completed soon.

"Right now my career is progressing very well and I have a lot of companies interested in me. We are just taking our time to decide on which offer will pay me what I deserve. I hope to be back in the ring soon," Rigondeaux stated.

Sure. Canelo won Lara fighting the air. Canelo received a gift from GB buying the judges

WTF does Caribe Promotions even do. Cause they clearly dont promote Rigo. Bunch of a ****ing scumbags.

[QUOTE=Cubanborn87]Yeah that jay z deal was well north of 1.5 million dollars you idiot[/QUOTE] Cuban fighters are worth about as much as a white dog turd in the hot sun. Rigo is garbage. Lara got his ass beat by Canelo. Suck it maricon

Rigo is the truth and he deserves to get paid. War Rigo!

This guy deserves to get them fights,ppv main eventer? Probably not but he is the purest boxer I've seen in a long time and even past his prime I don't see him losing anytime soon. I can imagine he'll score a fair few knock outs in his upcoming fights.
