Rigondeaux: I'm Ready To Face Donaire, Mares, Arce

By Reynaldo Sanchez

Cuban star and WBA super bantamweight world champion Guillermo “The Jackal” Rigondeaux (9-0, 7KOs) is continuing his campaign to secure a major fight with one of the elite names at 122-pounds.

“I am hoping that even though they mention my name [in interviews], they should know that I am ready to fight against them whenever they want. If they are thinking about being better than me, it does nothing to sit there and talk about it. We should get in the ring and talk in there - where it counts - and not say foolish things in the media,” Rigondeaux said.

“This week I will start light training to maintain my form. I want them to know, Nonito [Donaire], [Abner] Mares, [Jorge] Arce and Nishioka, that I am waiting for their managers or promoters to make a fight with me, whenever they want."

“Speaking is the easiest thing to do. In my case I speak little and try to do more [in the ring]. If any of them believe that they are better than me, here they have the opportunity to obtain an 'easy win' and a world title…. Let's stop saying foolish things and call me to make the fights."

Promoter Boris Arencibia of Caribe Promotions, who works with Rigondeaux, indicates the possibility of fighting in June. He also would entertain matching Rigondeaux against featherweight champions Orlando Salido and Celestino Caballero at a catch-weight of 124-pounds.

Top Rank won't put Rigondeax with the Flash right now. Rigondeax vs GBP fighters well let put it this way Top Rank + Golden Boy = no fight.
