Rigondeaux trolls Lomachenko ahead of one of the most eagerly anticipated pure-boxing matches in many a year.
If you’re a fan of real boxing skill and ability, it will be hard to see two better technicians battle it out than Guillermo Rigondeaux and Vasyl Lomacehnko this year.
The two will collide on December 9th at the icon Madison Square Garden in New York for the WBO super-featherweight world title.
It will see challenger Rigondeaux move up in weight considerably as he bids to upset the supremely gifted Lomachenko.
‘Rigo’ doesn’t feel this size will be a disadvantage however, as he thinks that the champion won’t be able to hit what he can’t see.
He’s even brought out a rather unique video to illustrate the point:
Certainly on the creative side as far as boxers trolling each other goes.
All jokes aside, both men will now be coming into the hard yards of training camp shortly as fight night draws closer.
Neither should have any problem making the weight — so expect both to turn up in incredible condition in a fight that could prove to be a bit special.
Currently odds makers have the champion Lomachenko as a slight favorite going into the bout, but many boxing fans see the contest as a two-horse race.
