After his win against former world champion Vic Darchinyan on Saturday in Corpus Christi, three-division world champion Nonito Donaire called for a rematch with WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux. Rigondeaux responded on his Twitter account, saying “I’m the 122lb king @filipinoflash if you want it come get it in Miami in March 2014.” According to a source, if Rigondeaux (12-0, 8 KOs) successfully defends his titles against former champ Joseph Agbeko (29-4, 22 KOs) on December 7 in Atlantic City, his next defense is supposed to take place in the month of March in Miami at the American Airlines Arena during the famous “Carnaval de la Calle 8″ celebrated by the large Cuban community in that city.
