Rigondeaux Places Target on The Back of Julio Ceja

Fisticuffs genius Guillermo Rigondeaux (15-0, 10KOs) is poised to carve his own unique niche on the  Miguel Cotto vs. Saul “Canelo” Álvarez HBO Pay-Per-View card against Filipino Drian Francisco at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
The two-time Olympic champion has not fought  since December 31, 2014,  but he is sure that inactivity won't be a detracting factor, as he's not stopped training .
After signing with Roc Nation, Guillermo confirmed this is the perfect moment to re-explode on to the boxing scene.
Rigo warned that the current WBC super bantamweight world champion, Julio Ceja, has his days strictly counted. The Cuban fighter guarantees that he'll defeat Mexican Rey Vargas, in an eliminatory match, which was ordered by the WBC during its convention in Kunming, China.
Without discounting the importance of his next  commitment, the Cuban pledged that he has everything staked in tonight's bout.

Ceja is going into a rematch with countryman Hugo Ruiz in January, likely in a venue located in California.

I recall watching Jamie McDonnell putting Julio Ceja to the sword a couple of years ago. Unless Ceja has improved drastically since then, Rigo will obliterate him if they ever met.

This year or next in a bout I doubt never happens , Ceja would not win 1 round...2 many defects w/ that power...a small canelo vs Floyd...
