Rigondeaux's Promoter Targets Agreement on Avalos

By Reynaldo Sanchez

Boris Arencibia, CEO at Caribe Promotions, who handle the career of WBO & WBA super bantamweight world champion Guillermo "The Jackal" Rigondeaux (14-0, 9 KO's), says his company is willing to satisfy the recent order that was issued by the World Boxing Organization, ordering the two-time Olympic gold medal winner to face mandatory WBO challenger Chris Avalos (24-2-0) 18 KO's. In addition, the American Avalos is ranked as #1 by the IBF and #5 in the WBA.

Arencibia has already made calls over to Top Rank and initiated discussions to reach an agreement. Because none of the other champions are willing to face Rigondeaux, the entire team believes Avalos is the best possible option at the moment.

"We have an enormous amount of respect for Chris Avalos. At the present Caribe Promotions and Top Rank are negotiating the terms of this bout. We have 30 days to reach an agreement and we are working hard to get it," Arencibia said.

"Caribe Promotions and all of Rigo’s team have the best intentions to make this fight happen. We wish to make the best fights. We have even challenged other champions, such as [Leo] Santa Cruz in the past and we haven’t heard anything from his camp. I don’t want to think that they are unwilling to fight Rigondeaux due their fear of losing, but everything is indicating to us that they won't fight, at least for now, so Avalos is a good choice."

"Top Rank promotes Chris Avalos and since the WBO ordered the fight against Guillermo Rigondeaux, we have been making some calls to reach an agreement as soon as possible. This will be a good fight. Avalos is a great warrior and has earned his chance for a world title fight against "The Jackal" Rigondeaux."

Well if Univision is located in Miami, FL then maybe that would be a good site to sell this fight for Caribbe Promotions?? I don't feel that Top Rank wants Chris Avalos to face Rigo though . . . why…
