WBA/WBC junior featherweight champ Guillermo Rigondeaux (14-0, 9 KOs) is still looking for a serious co-promoter, but will return to the ring, anyway, on a December 31 card in Tokyo, Japan.
The Cuban Olympic gold medalist will face Japanese featherweight contender, Hisashi Amagasa (28-4-2, 19 KO), on a card that also features WBA super featherweight world titlist, Takashi Uchiyama and WBA super flyweight champ, Kohei Kono.
Amagasa is a moderately well-regarded fighter, who has never really ventured beyond the regional/Japanese level. His career high-water mark has been a 1-1 set against former world titlist Ryol Li Lee.
Rigondeaux, who is promoted by Caribe Promotions, is still looking for a qualified co-promoter who can better acquire the big fights he craves. Boxingscene is reporting that Rigondeaux will make $500,000 for this upcoming fight, so there is obviously still money to be found away from the fickle U.S. fight market.
