Rigondeaux vs Casimero

The fact that the "lighter" weight classes in particular produce high-quality and exciting battles should not only be known to die-hard boxing fans!  And just such a duel could now be imminent when it comes to the WBO bantamweight championship in Carson, California.

For the Filipino defending champion John Riel Casimero (30-4-0, 21 Ko’s), who is entitled to own the World Cup belt according to the WBO version, this competition means much more than just defending his title.  Because the 32-year-old Casimero will face none other than Guillermo Rigondeaux (20-1-0, 13 Ko’s)!  At the age of 40, the Cuban wants to know again.

Even if some experts see the role of favorite with John Casimero, who is eight years his junior, the former Olympic champion and two-time professional world champion, Guillermo Rigondeaux, still magically attracts many boxing enthusiasts.  It remains to be seen whether boxing artist Rigondeaux, who will celebrate his 41st birthday in September, will be able to build on his old successes.  About a year and a half ago, "Rigo" was in the ring for the last time.

In any case, the boxing veteran shouldn't afford too much ring rust!  John Riel Casimero was able to convince even stubborn critics of his class in his last two fights after he was able to stop Zolani Tete and Duke Mikah both clearly and prematurely.  Should Casimero succeed in an equally impressive performance against Rigondeaux, that should mean the final breakthrough for the reigning WBO world champion.
