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."
Karceno: What would it take for you to fight Nonito Donaire again?
Rigondeaux: "Donaire doesn't want to fight him and his team just want to cry like a baby, after the beating I gave him, If he wants another one, ok let's fight in Miami at 122, but they don't want to fight they want to make excuses, he can't make weight, he had a baby, he's the baby. I tell the world I would expose him, and the Cuban style would destroy him. They said I couldn't beat him because I was an amateur, well what am I now?"
Karceno: Well you dominated Agbeko and critics like Larry Merchant said he was about to fall asleep after the second round of the fight, when it was one of your best performances, does that bother you?
Rigondeaux: "No I don't care what they say, just as long as I win, but it shows he knows nothing. they said I can't fight 12 rounds. They said I can't take Nonito power. I can't fight pros, I am amateur, well the amateur is beating up the pros, so what am I now. I will beat anyone that face me in the ring, they can say what they want, I cannot lose."
Karceno: Where do you rank yourself in the sport of boxing today?
RIgondeaux: "I am the best fighter in the world, Hall of Fame. Guillermo Rigondeaux."
Thank to my main man Manny for the translation hope you enjoy.
