WBA super bantamweight titlist Guillermo Rigondeaux has reached a “resolution” with promoter Top Rank and manager Gary Hyde that has reversed an August 21 court ruling that blocked him from a scheduled September 15 title defense.
The Miami Circuit Court previously ruled that Rigondeaux could not defend his title without the approval of Hyde, who’s managed Rigondeaux since 2007. Last night, all parties reached an agreement that will allow Rigondeaux to face Robert Marroquin as planned on the Martinez-Chavez Jr. undercard.
“Thanks to my attorneys, Patrick English and Bill Brown, we have negotiated a far superior deal to fight Robert Marroquin on September 15th,” said Hyde. “‘Rigo doesn’t get involved or side tracked by legal dramas. He has promised me that he is at his all-time best and that he will KO Marroquin.”
The fight will be Rigondeaux’s second title defense since winning the strap via a sixth round TKO over Rico Ramos in January.
