Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8KOs) will finally return on HBO, something that seemed highly unlikely months ago.

The recognized junior featherweight champion will defend his WBA and WBO 122-pound titles against Joseph Agbeko (29-4, 22KOs) on Dec. 7 in Atlantic City, N.J., in the main event of an HBO-televised offering, Rigondeaux's manager Gary Hyde told BoxingScene.com on Tuesday. Hyde added that the fight has been agreed to but that the sides are waiting on contracts.

"We are excited on hearing the fight will go ahead December 7th and delighted that Joseph has stepped up to the plate to take on the number one 122-pound fighter," Hyde said.

Rigondeaux's last fight was in April, a dominant decision victory over Nonito Donaire on HBO. Following the bout, reports circulated that HBO had no wishes to televise two-time Olympic gold medalist from Cuba, citing his style.

Agbeko comes forward and is likely to bring the fight to Rigondeaux. Abgeko, who recently signed a deal with Espinoza Boxing, engaged in some thrilling fights with Abner Mares, Yonnhy Perez and Vic Darchinyan on Showtime from 2009 to 2011.

This is going to be a great fight. Agbeko is a tough as nails fighter but I still see Rigo winning the fight.
