Team Rigondeaux: Rigo Will Return in a Big Way

By Elisinio Castillo

Promoter Boris Arencibia of Caribe Promotions, who handle WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (15-0, 10KOs), has confirmed the statements that appeared from his fighter a few days ago on

Rigondeaux said he was officially a free agent, because his managerial contract with Gary Hyde had finally expired on September 15th. Both Rigondeaux, and Arencibia, deny the claims by Hyde, who says the fighter is contractually bound to him until early next year.

The two-time Olympic gold medal winner is going to return in a big way, says Arencibia. Both Rigondeaux and Cariba had a very tense relationship with Hyde.

"A new chapter begins in the history of Guillermo Rigondeaux,'' said Arencibia to George Ebro. "Our champion is at the peak of his career and nothing that's being said out there or being alleged by Hyde can stop [our plans]. Everyone will see his return in a big way."

"This period of time where we were attached to Hyde has been a real test for our patience.  A lot of promoters were also anticipating September 15 in order to avoid having to deal with this situation, but now it's all over and we start a new phase, transparent and it's going to benefit, above everyone, Rigo."

The super-bantamweight has been out of the ring since December 31 in Osaka, when he knocked out Japanese contender Hisashi Amagasa. The inactivity is being blamed on the friction with Hyde.

"You must believe us when we say that we are the first to feel frustrated by what happened [with his inactivity], '' said Arencibia." We had our hands tied on a lot of things and we have dealt with other situations in which there has been bad faith. Luckily, no evil lasts 100 years and Rigo has time enough time in front of him to extend his rule."

Rigo should take note of the Floyd fallout.
