Commission KOs Rigondeaux-Kratingdaenggym

The WBA super bantamweight championship fight between undefeated defending champion Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux and former world champion Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym has been canceled from this Saturday’s card at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Rigondeaux vs. Kratingdaenggym was scheduled to be televised live on HBO as the co-main event to the Nonito Donaire vs. Jorge Arce WBO junior featherweight title fight. Donaire vs. Arce will go on as scheduled, televised live on HBO, beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. The telecast will open with the exclusive replay of last week’s Fight of the Year — Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Márquez 4. “The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation notified us today that they would not issue a license to Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym,” said Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank. “I feel very badly for both fighters who trained very hard. Top Rank’s matchmakers are working with HBO to returning Guillermo back to the ring as soon as possible.” Word is Kratingdaenggym had problems with his blood test.
