Guillermo Rigondeaux, a brilliant amateur, twice an Olympic gold medallist, has had a troubled professional career. He’s been too good for own good – after beating Nonito Donaire further major fights eluded him and Rigondeaux has toured the world, boxing in Japan and Macau. Now he comes to the new Ice Arena in Cardiff on Saturday (July 16) to put his restored WBA super-bantamweight the title on the line against Liverpool’s James “Jazza” Dickens.
12, three minute rounds.
BoxNation televise the show in the UK, beginning at 6pm.
There is another world title on the bill, Terry Flanagan faces the unthreatening Mzonke Fana for the WBO lightweight title. There is a very good British super-welterweight title fight between Liam Williams and Gary Corcoran guarantees excitement, plus Bradley Skeete, Tommy Langford and a returning Gary Buckland will all be in action on the bill.
