According to Gary Hyde, manager of WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8KOs), the Cuban boxer will return in September or October - against former champion Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28KOs).

He then signed a promotional contract with Top Rank [who also have Rigondeaux] and returned last month with fourth round stoppage of Javier Gallo in Laredo, Texas.

Would be a crazy story if Vic won. But I'd say he has a better chance of writing the great American novel.
