Rigondeaux vs. Flores To Land on Miguel Cotto Comeback Card?

By Miguel Rivera

Mexico's unbeaten Moises Flores has revealed that there is an initial agreement to face WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo 'The Jackal' Rigondeaux on December 3 on US soil, tentatively at Madison Square Garden in New York. The card would be headlined by former four division world champion Miguel Angel Cotto.

World Boxing Association President Gilberto Mendoza Jr. ordered the representatives of Rigondeaux and Flores to begin negotiations to unify their titles - Flores holds the WBA's interim title at 122-pounds. The winner of this fight could go against Panamanian Nehomar Cermeno, who holds the WBA 'regular' title.

"It was confirmed, and they sent me the contract. Rigondeaux is a fighter in every sense of the word, he's very good. I am in my time and that will show on December 3," Flores told ESPN Deportes.

"If I get to win over Rigondeaux as I hope, it will undoubtedly be one of the biggest victories for Mexican boxing, and for me. I know that I will be regarded as one of the best fighters in Mexico, because even being world champion people do not know me yet, but this will certainly be a tough fight."

Moises (25-0, 17 KO) is represented by manager/adviser Al Haymon, while Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KO) is represented by Roc Nation Sport, who also promote Cotto.

For Cotto, that return will be the final bout of his three fight agreement with Roc Nation. He's been inactive since last November's twelve round decision loss to Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. Nothing has been officially announced by Roc Nation regarding the date and Cotto has yet to secure an opponent. His return was initially planned for June and then pushed back after Roc Nation was unable to secure a suitable opponent.

[QUOTE=killakali;17037489]not really. Why would RNS go to purse bid? Purse bid just to put this on a ppv undercard that fight will lose money. And Haymon? Why does he want to outbid RNS to pay rigo's absorbent fee for RNS.…
