Guillermo Rigondeaux: Next Time I'll Be Explosive!

Las Vegas, Mandalay Bay - Former WBA and WBO Super Bantamweight World Champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KOs) made his return to the ring for the first time after signing with Roc Nation Sports and secured the win against Drian Francisco (28-4-1, 22 KOs) in a 10-round super bantamweight fight.
 
"I feel terrific after the fight," said Guillermo Rigondeaux. "He threw heavy but his style has nothing on mine. My style outmatched his. It's been 11 months since I've been in the ring and I definitely felt some cobwebs but I d like to see some other fighters be out 11 months and come back with a win."

"I definitely wanted to give the fans a better fight so I need to get back in to the gym, get more active to give a better performance. I promise that with the tools I have now after signing with Roc Nation that next time I'll be explosive. Thank you to my team for helping me get this win."

Francisco was furious with the way the fight played out.
 
"Rigondeaux is not a fighter, he is a runner," said Drian Francisco. "He is afraid of getting hurt and doesn't want to fight. I felt pressured into being the aggressor during this fight because he wasn't fighting, he was running away. He is not a power puncher and won by points. I trained really hard for this fight and I feel like it was a waste of time because I didn't encounter a fighter tonight."

So next fight? Not on a PPV card while the world is watching? Even us as your fans were dissappointed, 7 punch rounds? You can't do that, what is his corner telling him?

From this point forward Rigo is only interesting if he's in there with another big name guy. Why would anybody want to watch a performance like last night against somebody who was a complete no-name
