Ray Flores Talks Loma vs Rigo Match-Up – December 9th sees WBO world super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko defend his belt against Guillermo Rigondeaux. The pair are set to meet in the main event of Bob Arum and his Top Rank Promotions event at the Madison Square Garden Theater and the fight is set to air on ESPN.
The match-up marks the first time that two fighters that have won two Olympic gold medals as amateurs are fighting for a professional world title. Lomachenko is 9-1 heading into the defense of his WBO world title while the 19-0 Rigondeaux, who has been calling out Lomachenko for a long time, is moving up two weight classes to make this fight happen. The fight sees Rigondeaux return to work with Top Rank once again as well.
