SUPER-BANTAMWEIGHT boss Guillermo Rigondeaux will fight mandatory challenger Moises Flores next, reportedly on the undercard of the mooted Andre Ward-Sergey Kovalev rematch.

The fight had previously been scheduled to appear on the Miguel Cotto-James Kirkland undercard in February, but the whole show was scrapped when Kirkland picked up an injury.

The WBA – whose title Rigondeaux holds – ordered his defence against Flores to be rescheduled and the Panama-based outfit confirmed earlier this week that the two sides had come to an agreement, therefore avoiding the purse bids scheduled for April 3.
