Scuttlebutt on social media Wednesday is that HBO is not interesting in bringing WBA/WBO world super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux back for another fight following his unanimous decision win over Nonito Donaire in April. Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum is not happy about it and will likely have to put the Cuban ring technician on pay-per-view undercards.
Meanwhile, Rigondeaux’s manager Gary Hyde has laid out a plan of potential fights he’d like to put Rigondeaux in that spans five continents.
Fight 1: Rigondeaux vs. Frampton in Europe
Fight 2: Rigondeaux vs. Shimoda in Asia
Fight 3: Rigondeaux vs. Agbeko in Africa
Fight 4: Rigondeaux vs. Darchinyan in Australia
Fight 5: Rigondeaux vs. Mares in North America
In related news, Nonito Donaire looks headed to a possible rematch against Vic Darchinyan when he makes his expected comeback in a November fight that HBO should have no problem with.
