By Edward Chaykovsky

Gary Hyde, the manager for WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (13-0, 8 KOs), wants WBC #1 mandatory challenger Carl Frampton (18-0, 13 KOs) to forget about facing WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz in the United States. He says Rigondeaux, who previously fought in Belfast, is wiling go give Frampton the hometown advantage.

"We didn't want to distract Carl Frampton in the run up to tonight's fight in Belfast," Hyde said on the social networks. "Rigo will return to Belfast and put both his world titles on the line against Carl. Carl is without a doubt one of the top 122lb fighters in the world and very worthy of a crack at both of Rigo's titles. Forget crossing the Atlantic to face Santa Cruz. Let's do it in Belfast. El Chacal Vs The Jackal. What a Fight!"

The fight is a long shot. Frampton worked very hard to get in line for a WBC mandatory eliminator, which he won earlier today with a two round stoppage of former two-division champion Hugo Cazares (40-8-2, 27 KOs).

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.]Sure... go for the paper champ and become one.[/QUOTE] Santa Cruz isn't the lineal champion but it's a little harsh to call him a paper champion. Him and Frampton are two young, hungry fighters in their prime who want to fight each other. Once again....do you not like the...

[quote=Dirk Diggler UK] Frampton withdrew from a mandatory position with the IBF to chase the WBC title. The IBF title is held by a guy he already knocked clean out. So to suggest Frampton is a ducker is a bit stupid when he's chasing a harder fight with Santa Cruz. There's no need to suddenly ...

[QUOTE=bose]Rigodoneux doing it the old fashioned way. Calling out fighters to fight him, just as Mayweather, Hopkins, Ali, Guerrero, Maindanna, Malinaggi, Thurman have done in the past, call out fighters because others are unwilling to fight them. History repeats itself.[/QUOTE] Who is unwill...
