Live from the MIA, Miami. Guillermo Rigondeaux is the best fighter at 122lbs, and wants the respect that the other champions before him have gotten.
Karceno: Now I'm one of you're biggest critics in the past but this last fight, I saw a different Rigondeaux, one that uses more of a pro style, than amateur, was that your goal?
Rigondeaux: "I fight the same way I always have but yes, I do better in each fight that I have. and the critics can say what they want but I don't understand why they have a problem with Cuban fighters, as you see we keep winning. What's wrong with winning. They want me to fight like a Mexican and stand there and get hit, why do that if I don't have to."

The truth is, everyone fighting on Saturday night has something to prove, which means the action in the ring promises to be heated and intense. Former two-time cruiserweight champion Steve “USS” Cunningham, 25-6, 12 KOs, of West Philly, continues his heavyweight campaign against Bakersfield, CA’s rugged Manuel Quezada, 29-7, 18 KOs, in an 8-rounder that tops the preliminary schedule. Both heavyweights badly need a win to break the division’s rankings, and a loss at this point for either fighter could be disastrous. Quezada said,…Continue
