1. Guillermo Rigondeaux
The fight all boxing fans want to see. Carl Frampton or Scott Quigg against the best super-bantamweight in the world, Guillermo Rigondeaux. Fights that have been seemingly avoided until now, but questions cannot go unanswered for much longer, especially after the Cuban made it clear that both are opponents he wants to face:
“Frampton and Quigg are both cowards for finding ways to avoid the best in their division. We wait in anticipation to see if the winner of a great fight between them would step up and step in the ring with me, so the whole world can see who the best 122 pound fighter is.”
In a bid to force Frampton or Quigg into a ring with him, Rigondeaux has agreed to fight in the UK. He takes on current British super-bantamweight champion, James ‘Jazza’ Dickens, on March 12 at the Echo Arena, Liverpool. It’ll be exciting to see whether the winner of this weekend’s unification fight will attend Rigondeaux-Dickens. If so, it could mark the beginning of promising negotiations.
