Rigondeaux slams Frampton and Quigg
Former RING, WBA and WBO junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux has taken to his Twitter page to vent his disgust at Carl Frampton’s split decision victory over rival Scott Quigg.
The hard-hitting Cuban was far from impressed and reiterated his desire to take on Frampton following his own bout against England’s James Dickens, who he takes on in Liverpool on March 12.
The two-time Olympic gold medalist ran a poll on Friday asking his followers if they thought the winner of Frampton versus Quigg would be “man enough” to fight him. Out of 1477 fight fans, 62 percent predicted that the winner would carry on avoiding Rigondeaux.
“El Chacal” once again branded his rivals as cowards, stating, “After I fight @JazzaDickens10 the loser of #FramptonQuigg should fight him and the winner should stop running and fight me.”
Rigondeaux, now 35 years old, is determined to regain his world titles and on the morning of Frampton-Quigg told followers, “I don’t care who wins 2nite. I only want for the winner to know I fight him anywhere anytime.”
He also took a swipe at the victor’s boxing ability, “No wonder (Frampton) has been running away from me 4 years. He can’t even box. Do you guys remember what happen 2 Nonito (Donaire)? Wait until I get his guy!”
