Rigo opens up on what he expects from “Hi-Tech” in their showdown and touches on weight being made a subject by some ahead of the fight.

Not long to go now until December 9th’s showdown between Guillermo Rigondeaux and Vasyl Lomachenko on December 9th at Madison Square Garden.

New York can expect to see perhaps one of the best tactical battles of the modern sweet science era between two fighters who embody the term “sweet science” as well as any.

A lot has been made about the size advantage Lomachenko has going into the fight – but it’s something “Rigo” is not worried about in the slightest.

Speaking on Twitter this evening, the Cuban said:

“I will never use the excuse of my size to justified anything. I would have fought Loma at 122, 126 or 130 as I am. Worry about him running from me inside Dring. Worry about that! Don’t call me boring on Sunday all he does is run all nite. I am expecting him “try” to run me down.”

Typically Lomachenko is always involved in exciting fights so if there is to be an aggressor of the two, style-wise you’d have to think it would be him in the bout – with Rigondeaux perhaps looking to counter punch his way to success.

The early rounds could tell a lot how the bout goes in terms of who establishes their game plan and momentum the quickest.

The fight will be contested for Lomachenko’s WBO world super-featherweight title.
