Rigondeaux splits with Roach, pulls out of this weekend's fight

25

According to Dan Rafael, Cuban amateur star Guillermo Rigondeaux has severed ties with trainer Freddie Roach. This might actually be a good move for him - I honestly didn't see anything that Roach was adding to his repertoire, and Roach is extremely overextended at the moment. He was spotted last week training with Floyd Mayweather Sr., but long-term, he's looking for someone who is willing to train him out in Miami. In somewhat related news, he pulled out of his fight this weekend because of injuries he suffered in sparring. He says that Roach was having him spar light middleweights, and that was part of the reason he has chosen to cut ties.
