Why is Guillermo Rigondeaux No Longer a Champion?


WBA Strips Guillermo Rigondeaux of his 122-pound title for reason unknown by his team. 

The Jackal is one of the most decorated boxers in modern boxing especially when he was an amateur, capturing two gold medals in the Olympics and a few others in other competitions. Guillermo carried on his exemplary performance to the pros having to defeat everyone that he faced until recently when he fought another amateur standout in Vasyl Lomachenko. The fight was one that boxing hardcore fans could call mythical as Guillermo needed to go up two weight classes in order to face Vasyl. But the fight was a let down as Guillermo was visibly outclassed by a bigger Vasyl who forced Guillermo to quit in round 6 of their fight.

The contest was for Vasyl Lomachenko's WBO Junior Lightweight title (130 lbs).



WBA decided to remove Guillermo from the ranking and take his 122 titles away. 


Roc Nation the promoter of Guillermo and his manager were not pleased about the decision of WBA and felt that it was unfair.  According to them, they should have been given an opportunity to at least inform the WBA if they will continue to fight at 130 or go back to 122 lbs, a decision however that Guillermo and his team has not decided yet.


What's next for Guillermo Rigondeaux?

Deciding if they want to keep fighting for the 122 or 126 would be their next step even if he is naturally a 118 pounder fighter.  At this stage, Rigondeaux who as a champion was having a hard time looking for opponent may have a tougher time this year as a challenger.
