Guillermo Rigondeaux and Carl Frampton are by general consensus the two best super-bantamweights in the world and a buzz is slowly building around a potential unification bout. Rigondeaux’s manager Gary Hyde has made it clear that he wants either Frampton or Scott Quigg now that a potential Leo Santa Cruz fight has been scuppered by the WBC champion’s loyalty to Al Haymon’s career plan. Frampton’s team are averting their gaze towards Quigg but the Rigondeaux fight must surely be on the radar at some point.
Shane McGuigan reckons that Carl Frampton can dispatch any of the title holders at the 122lb weight class. In fact, Frampton’s trainer, who has adapted seamlessly to training at world level, has been saying this for a while and now will be the perfect time to prove it.
