Guillermo Rigondeaux looking in incredible shape and displays ferocious work here on the pads before the biggest fight of his career.
The Cuban boxer looks to be in the best condition of his career and has been displaying razor sharpness all week from fight footage out there so far.
Moving up two weight classes to take on a technical master in Lomachenko is always going to be a big challenge, but by the looks of his preparation, “Rigo” certainly has the belief he can do it.
At present bookmakers have Lomachenko as a warm favorite and feel that if Rigondeaux is to have any chance of getting the win, that it will be done so over the distance.
Ahead of the fight this video from the folks at Fight Hub TV YouTube (hat tip) shows just how deadly serious Rigondeaux is taking things:
The bout has been in the making for a while now, essentially made due to public demand for it to happen.
The last time Rigondeaux fought on an occasion of this scale would have been a little over four years ago, when he defeated Nonito Donaire who was then rated one of the best fighters in the world.
