Guillermo Rigondeaux fight time plus date and venue

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.

Rounds scheduled

12, three minute rounds.

TV coverage
