Rigondeaux calls out Carl Frampton for in his opinion, being a “ducker”. He did not mince his words when asked the question by one fan.
A couple of years back when both boxers were competing in the super-bantamweight division (122lbs) a fight seemed like it could be realistically made.
For whatever reason it didn’t happen, and both have competed at different weight classes since.
Cuban boxing maestro Guillermo Rigondeaux has his hands plenty full at the moment with his next task against Vasyl Lomachenko next month at Madison Square Garden.
But he also has one eye on Frampton it would seem.
Speaking on Twitter ‘Rigo’ posted a video of Frampton’s fans and in his message about the boxer and branded him a ducker:
How can you be a ducker with fans like these? I seriously don’t understand. Fans like these deserved that you fight whoever and risk everything you go to be the best. Just my opinion. #Dec9. ☘️ fans I am coming for you all! Watch me on @boxnationtv drinking as many ? as u want pic.twitter.com/Ah9UO5LnCX

When one fight fan asked for clarification on the above, Rigondeaux didn’t hesitate to confirm his sentiments:
Frampton now competes in the featherweight division and last week won his first fight since suffering a loss to Leo Santa Cruz back in January.
A unanimous points win over Horacio Garcia that Frampton hopes will set up a big fight for him in 2018.
With Rigondeaux now also competing at a higher weight against super-featherweight against Lomachenko next month, win or lose, a fight against Frampton at featherweight in 2018 could make an awful lot of sense.
