His fight is due to licencing issues with his opponent. It’s an awful shame for him but hopefully we’ll be hearing much more about him in the near future. A huge disappointment also to the big band of ones from Monaghan and beyond who had travelled out to see him..

He is fighting this weekend

Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux this weekend, could potentially be one of the greatest fights ever.

Glad Rigo is getting a big fight at last but unfortunately its far from on his terms, he's he's well past it now plus he is giving up 2 (or is 3?) weight divisions for this fight.

I think he can still cause Lomo a few issues tho,  but the weight difference will probably mean he could bully Rigo if its not going his way still should be good tho.

Rigondeaux at 3/1 for this one, bookies seem fairly confident.

Lomachenko hot hot favourite though. 1/5 on. Rig 7/2. Doesn’t suggest a tight scrap.

Has Rigo more power though and if so will that transfer to the new weight class? Should be a very interesting fight

Certainly worth watching or even getting the next morning compared to some bigger publicity fights this year though.

Does anyone know if this is on the normal Boxnation subscription that you get with BT sports?

I think Lomachenko wins this with ease. Too big and just too good. Although I'm a fan of Rigo, I think he may just be on the slide. Well worth watching though.
That was never a square ball!!

You'll pick it up if you subscribe to Box Nation, think you can stream it - I am nearly sure I read somewhere if you have BT Sports you'll get it through their app or something too.

Rigo doesn't have punching power anyway so it's definitely not going to carry up!
