Promoters confirm Lomachenko-Rigondeaux fight

Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko will fight against super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux on December 9.

This was announced by Bob Arum of Top Rank promotion company, Boxingnews portal reports.

“Arum promotes WBO super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs), and he plans on matching him against unbeaten super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) on December 9,” the article reads.

The fight will match two Olympic gold medalists against each other. As noted, the only one detraction for Lomachenko vs. Rigondeaux will be the weight for the fight. “It’s supposed to take place at 130 pounds at the super featherweight limit. That puts a big strain on the 36-year-old Rigondeaux, who will need to move up 2 weight classes to take the fight against Lomachenko,” the article reads.
