Guillermo Rigondeaux has labeled Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton ‘cowards’.
The Cuban, who was added to the Terry Flanagan v Derry Mathews show yesterday, claims both fighters are running scared of him.
‘Rigo’ who was formerly managed by Cork’s Gary Hyde was stripped of both his WBO and WBA super bantamweight titles due to inactivty but is mandated to fight the winner of the pairs February 27 Manchester clash, although so is IBF #1 contender Shingo Wake.
The two time olympic gold medal winner is certainly keen to face the winner, a point proven by the fact he agreed to fight Jazza Dickons in England, but suggests both will avoid him.
“Frampton and Quigg are both cowards for finding ways to avoid the best in their division. We wait in anticipation to see if the winner would step up and step in the ring with me, so the whole world can see who the best 122 pound fighter is.”
“Fans should come see the real super world champion in Liverpool, as I¹ll be ready to put on a show and be in a position to happily knock out the winner of Frampton Quigg, if either would even fathom the idea of stepping in the same ring with me,” explained the 35 year old through a Queensbury Promotions press release.
