Guillermo Rigondeaux has decided that being quiet just doesn't pay off, so he's taken to Twitter to call out, like, everybody in or around his weight. Well, a few people, anyway. And mostly playing off of what happened this past weekend.
Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KO) is still the top fighter at 122 pounds in most minds, despite the fact that he was stripped of both the WBA and WBO titles late last year. Following Saturday's fights, where Carl Frampton beat Scott Quigg and Leo Santa Cruz beat Kiko Martinez, Rigondeaux said he'd fight all of them monthly, after facing Jazza Dickens on March 12:
Rigondeaux's fight with Dickens (21-1, 6 KO) isn't expected to be a serious challenge, but the Cuban says that the British champion has his respect for stepping up to the plate:
The only of these guy that got my absolute respect 2day is @JazzaDickens10 . He made no excuses. Hope these guy learn something from him— Guillermo Rigondeaux (@RigoElChacal305) February 28, 2016
The Rigondeaux-Dickens fight will take place at Echo Arena in Liverpool, Dickens' hometown, on a card headlined by Terry Flanagan vs Derry Mathews on BoxNation.
