Vasyl Lomachenko: Rigondeaux Does Not Want To Fight

By Gregroy Stangrit

27-year-old Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko, who holds the WBO world featherweight championship, says WBA/WBO junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux of Cuba, 34-years-old, has refused to fight him.

The two Olympic champions have been trading messages on the social networks, calling each other out to fight.

Lomachenko says everything was agreed upon, including a rehydration clause on the morning of the fight and then Rigondeaux refused to face him.

"When we started talking to them about a fight in more detail, they put forward different conditions. They demanded the [financial] amount that was required, and we agree with them about it. They made a demand that on the morning of the fight, my weight does not exceed 62.5 kilograms [135-pounds give or take]. I agreed. But now they told us that they are not ready to stage this fight, now they do not want to fight," Lomachenko said.

[QUOTE=Savage Poster;16007468]Everybody knows Rigondeaux is a goddamn homosexual d**k suckin' animal. I heard Rigondeaux isn't satisfied with the terms because Team Lomachenko didn't include a lifetime supply of bananas from the brand of his choice and won't let him perform…
