Team Rigondeaux: Top Rank Extension Not Yet Done

By Ryan Maquiñana and Rick Reeno

Junior featherweight titlist Guillermo Rigondeaux (10-0, 8 KOs) has not yet officially signed an extension with Top Rank, according to Pat English, attorney of the fighter’s manager Gary Hyde.

Earlier on Friday, it was reported that Rigondeaux’s two-year promotional contract was set to expire following this Saturday’s title defense against Roberto Marroquin (22-1, 15 KOs), and that Top Rank CEO Bob Arum announced that the Cuban champ agreed to an 18-month extension.

However, in a statement via email to BoxingScene.com from a member of Team Rigondeaux, English stated the following:

I have now read two articles quoting Bob Arum to the effect that Mr. Rigondeaux will remain with Top Rank.

Those statements seem to be offered as fact and not opinion. Let me make this clear.  Any offer must be placed in writing and will be considered. However, it is not accurate to suggest that any new contract is in any way a fait accompli and Bob should be so advised.  The sole commitment made is to consider any written proposal.

Rigondeaux-Marroquin will occur on the Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.-Sergio Martinez HBO Pay-Per-View undercard.

He needs to sign with GBP, he could get Mares, Moreno or Santa Cruz. Top Rank doesn't give a damn about him, they have him fight at the bottom of undercards. Why stay with them for the remote possibility of…
