Guillermo Rigondeaux are set to take center stage on Saturday night in a match pitting two fighters who have each won multiple Olympic gold medals — the first such match ever seen in the sport. Legend Roy Jones Jr. went so far as to say it’s the best fight on paper in the history of boxing. It’s also dripping with storylines.
Lomachenko (9-1, 7 KOs) has yet to find any real competition in his current weight class, and the same can be said of Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs), who is moving up two weight classes to take this fight. Rigondeaux was also represented by promoter Bob Arum for the early stages of his career before Arum dropped him. Now, it all comes to a head when Lomachenko and Rigondeaux square off at the “World’s most famous arena.” Here’s everything you need to know about the fight.
Lomachenko out of Ukraine in 2013, the outspoken promoter did not mince words, calling Lomachenko the best fighter he’s seen since a young Muhammad Ali, who Arum promoted to start his career 51 years ago.
That’s about as tough a comparison to live up to as imaginable in this sport. But Lomachenko, a southpaw who compiled an incomparable 396-1 record as an amateur, did not attempt to downplay his arrival on the professional scene. “I am not like most fighters. I want to be on the list of the greatest, best boxers in history,” he said, shrugging off the pressure of otherworldly expectations.
