Cotto vs Margarito Undercard: Rico Ramos vs Guillermo Rigondeaux Fight Won't Be Featured

Rick Reeno of BoxingScene.com reports that the 122-pound title fight between Rico Ramos and Guillermo Rigondeaux will go ahead sometime, but will not be part of the December 3 HBO pay-per-view card, headlined by the rematch between Miguel Cotto and Antonio Margarito.

I don't mean this to sound so awful as it will, but thank God. The undercard is being put together pretty quickly, and right now we're looking at Cotto vs Margarito in the main event, Mike Jones vs Sebastian Lujan in a good welterweight matchup, and Brandon Rios in action at lightweight. With the news yesterday that Rios would be on the card, likely in the main co-feature slot, it seemed like Pawel Wolak was the lost man. Wolak has been rumored for the card since his July Fight of the Year candidate with Delvin Rodriguez.

But with Ramos vs Rigondeaux not being part of the card, that means we probably still get Wolak, which means we have a card with Cotto vs Margarito, Rios vs TBA, Jones vs Lujan, and Wolak vs TBA. Wolak and Rios could fight air and make it entertaining, and Ramos vs Rigondeaux just looks like a snoozer in waiting.

Apparently, Ramos and team are unhappy with the money being offered. The fight will go to a purse bid and likely wind up on a Goossen show at some point.
