Guillermo Rigondeaux is heading to UK next month to publicly confront Scott Quigg

Unified super bantamweight world champion Guillermo "The Jackal" Rigondeaux (15-0, 10 KOs), arguably the most avoided reigning world title holder in modern boxing history, will travel to London next month in order to publicly confront his mandatory challenger, Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs), the World Boxing Association (WBA) "regular" 122-pound division titlist.

A month ago in an unusual move, Rigondeaux' manager Gary Hyde formally petitioned the WBA to enforce a mandatory title fight between his WBA Super champion and Quigg. Hyde is awaiting the WBA's decision. Rigondeaux is also the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and The Ring magazine's super bantamweight champion.
