    Rigondeaux: I'm Gonna Just Beat the Sh*t Out of Lomachenko!
    By Keith Idec

    NEW YORK – Guillermo Rigondeaux is 37 years old, has fought a total of three rounds in the past two years and has moved up two weight classes to challenge one of the best boxers in the world.

    You wouldn’t know it.

    The supremely confident Cuban southpaw promised Wednesday to “beat the sh*t out of” Vasyl Lomachenko when they square off Saturday night in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. Ukraine’s Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs), the defending WBO super featherweight champion, is more than a 3-1 favorite over Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs, 1 NC) in this unprecedented clash between two-time Olympic gold medalists.

    Rigondeaux, who has competed almost all of his professional career within the super bantamweight division, has paid no mind to doubtful fans, media and odds-makers.

    “I have no idea,” Rigondeaux told BoxingScene.com when asked to assess Lomachenko’s skills. “I don’t even look at that sh*t. I adapt, no problem. Like with anyone else, we’re gonna resolve this issue and I’m gonna just beat the sh*t out of him. I know what I’m bringing. I don’t know what the hell he’s bringing, but I know what I’m bringing. I’m bringing mine.”

    Known as one of the best defensive fighters in boxing, Rigondeaux didn’t divulge whether he plans to be more aggressive offensively in this scheduled 12-round bout to keep Lomachenko from pressing him.

    “Each opponent is different and I adapt to each opponent,” Rigondeaux said. “Sometimes it takes more offense, sometimes it takes more defense. We adjust as we’re in the ring.”


    Beyond being able to make weight more easily because he won’t need to cut eight extra pounds, Rigondeaux didn’t do anything different to prepare for this high-profile fight than in previous camps.

    “We trained well and we’re 100 percent,” Rigondeaux said. “We had a great training camp. We always train hard for every opponent.”

    ESPN will air Lomachenko-Rigondeaux as the main event of a four-fight telecast Saturday night (9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST).

    Rigo Season is almost here niggas...

    Just like i said. Rigo has no game plan for lomochenko. His trainers is just as lost as he is

    http://www.boxingscene.com/bob-arum-very-open-talent-trades-with-showtime--123187
    Bob Arum Very Open To Do Talent "Trades" With Showtime
    By Radio Rahim

    Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has made it no secret that he's no fan of the current leadership at HBO Sports, but he's more than willing to have a working relationship with Showtime and their parent company, CBS.

    Earlier this year, Arum's company parted ways with HBO and signed an exclusive multi-year agreement with ESPN.

    However, there are big fights to be made with fighters who may be contracted elsewhere.

    For example, one of Arum's star fighters, Terence Crawford, is heading up to the welterweight division - but the bulk of the welterweight talent, and the welterweight champions, are tied to Showtime.

    Arum has no problem with working out a talent trade relationship with Showtime Sports head Stephen Espinoza - an arrangement where the two sides would make talent available to each other for necessary fights.

    The veteran promoters realizes that it's not realistic to believe that every significant fight involving one his boxers will end up on ESPN.

    Maybe Crawford fights a Showtime fighter like Keith Thurman on ESPN, but an ESPN fighter like Manny Pacquiao would fight Danny Garcia on Showtime.

    That's the kind of relationship Arum is aiming for - a scenario that benefits both sides.

    "Lets not look at promoters particularly, lets look at networks. Over at Showtime, Espinoza is a very smart guy. And his boss is a very big fight fan, a good friend of mine, Les Moonves, and Moonves will make these fights happen. They can't all be on ESPN nor can they all be on Showtime - so there is something called trade," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

    "The big boys, whether it's CBS, ABC, FOX, ESPN - they have no problem with college football... arranging who gets which game and so forth. I think it will be the same and it should be the same with Showtime, CBS and Top Rank - that if they need a Top Rank fighter to fight on Showtime, we'll make them available. And if there is a fighter who traditionally fights on Showtime or CBS, they will make him available to ESPN.

    "I think that we'll work very, very well with [Showtime, CBS] - at least that's my hope."

    How the fuck has Rigo fought so few times? My lighter weight class knowledge is shit, so I'm open for the schooling on him and his opponent.

    Also, Pacquiao being raped in the pockets and reaching out to McGregor is sad. Like him or not, Pac's legacy is earned and I hate to see him reaching to the peanut gallery for scraps.

    They both have extensive amateur backgrounds and are regarded by some as two of the best amateurs in history. Lomachenko has right under 400 amateur fights and 2 gold medals. Rigondeaux has almost 500 amateur fights and 2 gold medals.

    Can't believe you don't know who either is, regardless of weight class haha

    ESPN Confirms Teddy Atlas Won't Work Loma-Rigo Broadcast
    By Keith Idec

    Longtime ESPN boxing analyst Teddy Atlas won’t work the cable network’s telecast Saturday night of the highly anticipated Vasyl Lomachenko-Guillermo Rigondeaux fight.

    Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Mannix reported Wednesday that the outspoken Atlas, a former trainer who has worked ESPN boxing broadcasts for nearly 20 years, won’t take his usual ringside seat alongside blow-by-blow announcer Joe Tessitore in The Theater at Madison Square Garden. The move comes less than month after Atlas spent a significant portion of an ESPN broadcast verbally sparring against Mark Kriegel, a former newspaper columnist and new member of the network’s announcing team.

    That distracting dynamic drew criticism from television and radio columnists and fans following the November 11 broadcast from Fresno, California.

    It is not known if the arguing between the always-animated Atlas and Kriegel had anything to do with Atlas’ removal from the Lomachenko-Rigondeaux broadcast or if it’s a permanent move. Stephanie Druley, an ESPN senior vice president for event and studio production, did tell Mannix that Staten Island’s Atlas, 61, has provided a feature piece for Saturday’s telecast and will continue to contribute to the network’s boxing coverage.


    “Teddy’s expertise and knowledge of boxing is unparalleled and he will continue to be part of our boxing coverage,” Druley said. “As we embark upon a new approach with our boxing coverage, we are also going to utilize different talent lineups.”

    She did not confirm the team that’ll work Saturday’s telecast.

    The four-fight telecast is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. EST/6 p.m. PST. In addition to the 12-round, 130-pound title bout between Ukraine’s Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) and Cuba’s Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs, 1 NC), it’ll include fights featuring 2016 Olympic silver medalist Shakur Stevenson (3-0, 1 KO), a featherweight from Newark, New Jersey, Irish featherweight prospect Michael Conlan (4-0, 4 KOs) and Puerto Rican super featherweight contender Christopher Diaz (21-0, 13 KOs).
