A Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux date for a long anticipated fight has reportedly been agreed upon it has been revealed.
Boxing fans could be getting ready to sing and dance as a tangible Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux date has now been placed for December 9th for a fight that many thought would never happen.
It would signify the meeting of two of boxing’s most technically gifted fighters of the modern era (outside of Floyd Mayweather) who both come from amazing amateur boxing careers – as well as being multi-weight champions in a short space of time as professionals.
Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux has been hounding Lomachenko and his manager on Twitter for the fight recently and it now looks like it could have paid off:
Lomachenko’s next fight supposed to be Dec. 9 at MSG Theater on ESPN. Arum said he has deal for opponent. I’m told it’s Rigondeaux. #boxing

If Dan Rafael is on the money, what a fight and what a setting for it at Madison Square Garden.
Lomacehnko is considered one of the very best pound for pound fighters in the sport at present and Rigondeaux although he has not been active as much in recent years, is still considered one of the most technically gifted out there when he’s on.
Boxing fans’ dream fight edges closer.
