Rigondeaux's Co-Promoter Lashes Out at Manager Hyde

By Elisinio Castillo

Caribe Promotions head Boris Arencibia, the co-promoter of WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (14-0, 9KOs), has lashed out at the comments which recently appeared on from the Cuban boxer's manager, Gary Hyde.

Rigondeaux's promotional contract recently expired with Top Rank. There were promotional offers from Roc Nation and Frank Warren, but neither of the two were able to reach an agreement with Caribe.

Hyde said Caribe was being problematic in the discussions.

“He had substantial offers from Roc Nation and Frank Warren, and they were two of the biggest contracts I’ve ever seen for a 122-pounder, but his co-promoters haven’t been able to agree,” Gary Hyde told

“With respects to [Caribe], they did put a lot into Rigondeaux to start, but it’s time to work with us now and stop being an obstacle against us,” Hyde said. “Rigondeaux, his clock is ticking away. He’s 34 years old now and he needs to get moving. He’s at this stage in his life where you never know how many fights he’s got left.”

Arencibia reacted back.

"Gary Hyde is a guy who doesn't have the faintest idea of ​​what happens in Rigondeaux's career," said Arencibia to George Ebro. "He's never been in a training camp, has never been interested in the technical aspects [of the camp], the sparring and wants to direct everything from Ireland. It's not worth it."

"He is the one who has not done anything for the boxer and now he comes to unload on us for his own faults. Fortunately, Rigo is very aware of everything that is happening."

caribe was the only bidder in their only star fighter, they bid so low that no decent fighter is going to take the fight, whose fault is it? they could have invested in their star and have a good fight…
