Rigondeaux vs. Darchinyan is Possible For The Fall


By Edward Chaykovsky –

According to Gary Hyde, manager of WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (12-0, 8KOs), the Cuban boxer will return in September or October – against former champion Vic Darchinyan (39-5-1, 28KOs). Rigondeaux had a career defining performance in April when beat Nonito Donaire with a twelve round decision in New York City. Darchinyan upset highly regarded prospect Orlando Del Valle last September with a ten round decision. He then signed a promotional contract with Top Rank [who also have Rigondeaux] and returned last month with fourth round stoppage of Javier Gallo in Laredo, Texas.
