Cuba’s Guillermo Rigondeaux makes his return to the ring Saturday for the first time since his dominating victory earlier this year over Nonito Donaire.
Seven months after his career-best victory, the undefeated Rigondeaux will be defending his World Boxing Association super bantamweight title against former two-time champ Joseph Agbeko Saturday at the Boardwalk Hall venue.
The 33-year-old Rigondeaux (12-0, eight knockouts) easily defeated Donaire by a unanimous decision in April and will be looking for another strong performance against veteran Agbeko.
“I am very pleased to have the opportunity to end 2013 the way I opened it up, with surprise and pure boxing class for the world to see,” said Rigondeaux.
“Joseph Agbeko is a great champion, and I believe all fans will be pleased with the type of performance we will both exhibit to end a great year of boxing. I believe Agbeko will come prepared, ready to engage and be very aggressive.”
Rigondeaux fashioned a superb amateur career that included 400 wins and just 12 losses. As a professional, he compiled an undefeated record with the help of his superb counter-punching and defensive skills. He is also considered one of the top pound-for-pound fighters in the sport.
Ghana’s Agbeko comes into the fight after a long layoff as he has won just once since 2010. He is also fighting for the second time since December 2011 when he lost a decision to Abner Mares.
“This is going to be a great fight. I’m extremely motivated. I plan to make my country proud by becoming world champion again after I defeat Rigondeaux,” said Agbeko, who has 29 wins and four losses.
Agbeko’s resume includes previous victories over Vic Darchinyan and Luis Perez.
