GUILLERMO RIGONDEAUX has been reinstated as WBA world super-bantamweight champion having been stripped of the title last November due to inactivity.

The belt fell to Scott Quigg, who relinquished it to IBF champion Carl Frampton in their February superfight.

Frampton was stripped of the WBA belt for not negotiating with Rigondeaux’s team, as he will move to featherweight to take on Leo Santa Cruz.
