Guillermo Rigondeaux Unhappy Being "Avoided" By Other Boxers

WBA "super" super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux is frustrated at boxers ducking him.

In a media workout, Rigondeaux vented his frustration to the media about how he is not good for having big-money fights and said he will show the sport he can bring an exciting fight in his next bout.

"I have been constantly avoided by all the fighters in my division," Rigondeaux said. "I am the best in the world at 122 pounds and one of the top pound-for-pound fighters. My opponents feel my power and run after the first round. "Chucky" Flores is a brave undefeated boxer that is coming with all he has, and we're ready to show why each of us is the best come June 17. I've had everyone in my division run away from any mentions of me in the ring with them. My team is first focused on the Flores fight, and we're ready to come and fight the best names in my division so that we can give the fans what they pay big Pay-Per-View money for, big exciting fights.”

Rigondeaux is fighting IBO super bantamweight champion Moises Flores in a unification bout as the co-main event of Andre Ward vs. Sergey Kovalev II, which will take place on June 17 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

The fight against Flores was supposed to take place on February 25 as the co-feature fight for Miguel Cotto vs. James Kirkland before the card got scrapped once Kirkland suffered an injury.
