It wasn’t long ago that one could call him a genuine cult favorite.
Lineal Jr. featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KO) has never been everyone’s cup of tea. He’s not an offensive minded fighter. His personality comes across to some as stoic, to others stodgy.
It didn’t matter to the Cult of Rigo. They admired the skill and they had a target. As Nonito Donaire rose to 122 lbs. and started winning belts in the class, the Rigondeaux corner got louder. They wanted a showdown.
They got it.
It remains his finest hour. Ignore the final scorecards, two of which were closer than reality. Rigondeaux thoroughly outclassed Donaire, adding the WBO belt to his WBA title. One could make a case for him winning eleven of the twelve rounds. The Cult of Rigo had their moment. The fighter had earned the right to call himself the genuine champion of his class.
Without another immediate target of similar stature, what was next? It turned out the answer was ‘not much.’ Rigondeaux next bout, a defense against former bantamweight titlist Joseph Agbeko, was so dull fans could be seen walking out on the fight. It left HBO uninterested in future Rigondeaux business.
That might not seem fair to some. In a competitive sense, it’s not. Winning should have its rewards. In a business sense, fair has nothing to do with it. Rigondeaux has no natural fan base and isn’t a ticket draw. That leaves meeting his monetary wants to the feeling of others.
Rigondeaux wound up on the road twice in 2014. A first round knockout win and an off the floor stoppage victory might have impressed where Agbeko had not. They were largely unseen. In part due to outside the ring issues, he spent most of 2015 on the shelf. He lost both his WBO and WBA belts outside the ring. Ring Magazine stripped him of their recognition (though no one can remove his place as the lineal king of the class).
Some opportunity knocked finally late last year.
 
A late addition to the Canelo Alvarez-Miguel Cotto card, Rigondeaux made his debut as part of the Roc Nation team. Matched with veteran Drian Francisco, he had his first chance in almost two years to impress a live US audience.
Rigondeaux laid an egg.
Sure, he won every round. It was a terrible viewing experience. He had an opponent who wasn’t in his league and did the minimum amount over ten rounds. Mitigating circumstances could be argued. The fight was taken on short notice by both parties. Rigondeaux was coming off a long layoff. He’s into his mid-30s and has a ton of miles on him from a long amateur career.
None of that matters when one is sitting around waiting for Alvarez-Cotto. What boxing fans saw was the same thing that had the crowd for Agbeko hitting the exits. For the first time, even avowed lovers of Rigondeuax had little to say in his defense. It’s clear how good he is at what he does. The Francisco fight made it very hard to argue against those who don’t give a damn or want to watch it.
And yes, this is a case where size matters. There are some who argue that Rigondeaux is no less exciting than someone like Floyd Mayweather. First of all, that’s not true. Floyd had some fights that could be dull. He even had some fans walk out on his win over Carlos Baldomir. But Floyd had lots of personality, plenty of fights that were good to very good viewing, and could put asses in seats.
And Floyd is a welterweight.
Rigondeaux weighs 122 lbs. In the US market at least, it takes more to get fans invested as the scale gets lighter. A low volume, defensive style in the class of Gomez, Morales, and Barrera just doesn’t put pack them in without a strong dance partner.
So here we are again. Rigondeaux is back off US TV, scheduled to fight this weekend against Liverpool’s James Dickens (21-1, 6 KO) in Liverpool. For the first time since Donaire, Rigondeuax and his most ardent followers have a target again. Now they have to get other people interested.
Carl Frampton says he’d take the fight. The team around the newly unified WBA and IBF titlist doesn’t appear to be interested. If the WBA insists on Rigondeaux as a mandatory challenger, Frampton has another belt to keep his warm and the possibility of a move to featherweight.
That alone might be enough to get the Rigondeaux faithful fired up again. The feeling Donaire was avoiding Rigondeaux (which was a bit absurd considering he fought him a little over a year after entering the class) helped build that into a fight more people wanted to see. Over a million viewers tuned into HBO that night, a good number relative to boxing.
Frampton-Rigondeaux wouldn’t do similar numbers on US TV, but it would attract plenty of fight fans. Love him or hate him, Rigondeaux against a top tier foe is going to get eyes.
That’s what makes this weekend critical. Let’s assume, for now, Rigondeaux works out the visa issues that could, with days to go, postpone or cancel this fight. 
US fans might not have live TV to view it but a Rigondeaux result will garner attention. If it sounds watchable, it’s going to bring clicks on YouTube. If it sounds like Francisco…
…people are going to be chatting about how soon a possible Frampton-Leo Santa Cruz at featherweight could be coming. More people than not will probably be talking about that anyways.
But if Rigondeaux can pull off the sort of electric walk through of Dickens that he once did of Willie Casey in Ireland, he at least creates a reminder that he’s out there, that it can be intriguing. Before Francisco, Rigondeaux fans pointed to the battle with Hisashi Amagasa to fight the narrative that their man was boring.
They need another piece of ammo and he needs what fan base he has to beat the drums. It can be fun to be part of a cult following. It’s not fun when the object of that cult isn’t making their case stronger.
Eventually, someone of note is going to take on Rigondeaux again. The impressions he makes each time he steps in the ring could determine how soon that happens.
And how much louder, or quieter, his following will be while he waits.

Por Cliff Rold
No fue hace mucho tiempo que nadie le podría llamar una auténtica película de culto.
Lineal Jr. campeón pluma de Guillermo Rigondeaux (16-0, 10 KO) nunca ha sido del agrado de todos. Él no es un luchador de mentalidad ofensiva. Su personalidad viene a través de algunos como estoico, a los demás bastante pesado.
No importaba que el Culto de Rigo. Ellos admirado la habilidad y tenían un objetivo. Como Nonito Donaire se elevó a 122 libras. y comenzó a ganar cinturones en la clase, la esquina Rigondeaux se hizo más fuerte. Ellos querían un enfrentamiento.
Lo consiguieron.
Queda por su mejor momento. No haga caso de las tarjetas finales, dos de los cuales estaban más cerca de la realidad. Rigondeaux superó a fondo Donaire, añadiendo el cinturón de la OMB a su título de la AMB. Se podría hacer un caso para él ganar once de los doce asaltos. El culto de Rigo tuvo su momento. El luchador se había ganado el derecho a llamarse a sí mismo el verdadero campeón de su clase.
Sin otro objetivo inmediato de similar estatura, lo que fue después? Resultó que la respuesta fue "no mucho". Rigondeaux próximo combate, una defensa ante el ex campeón de peso gallo Joseph Agbeko, era tan aburrido aficionados podían verse caminar hacia fuera en la lucha. Se dejó HBO poco interesado en el negocio futuro Rigondeaux.
Esto puede no parecer justo para algunos. En un sentido competitivo, no lo es. Ganadora debe tener su recompensa. En un sentido comercial, justo no tiene nada que ver con ello. Rigondeaux no tiene ninguna base de fans natural y no es un sorteo de entradas. Eso deja a satisfacer sus necesidades monetarias a la sensación de los demás.
Rigondeaux terminó en el camino dos veces en el año 2014. Una primera victoria de octavos de final y un fuera de la victoria de paro baja podría haber impresionado cuando Agbeko no tenía. Ellos fueron en gran parte invisible. En parte debido a problemas fuera de los anillos, pasó la mayor parte de 2015 en el estante. Él perdió sus dos cinturones de la OMB y la AMB fuera del cuadrilátero. Ring Magazine lo despojó de su reconocimiento (aunque nadie puede quitar su lugar como el rey lineal de la clase).
Algunos oportunidad llamó finalmente a finales del año pasado.

Una adición tardía a la tarjeta Canelo Alvarez y Miguel Cotto, Rigondeaux hizo su debut como parte del equipo de Roc Nation. Emparejado con el veterano Drian Francisco, tuvo su primera oportunidad en casi dos años para impresionar a una audiencia en vivo de Estados Unidos.
Rigondeaux puso un huevo.
Claro, él ganó todos los asaltos. Fue una experiencia de visualización terrible. Tenía un oponente que no estaba en su liga y lo hizo la cantidad mínima de más de diez rondas. Las circunstancias atenuantes podría argumentar. La lucha fue tomada en un corto plazo por ambas partes. Rigondeaux venía de una larga ausencia. Él está en su mediados de los años 30 y tiene un montón de millas en él a partir de una larga carrera amateur.
Nada de eso importa cuando uno está sentado a esperar a que Álvarez-Cotto. Lo que los fanáticos del boxeo vio fue el mismo que tenía la multitud de Agbeko golpear las salidas. Por primera vez, incluso los amantes declarados de Rigondeuax tenían poco que decir en su defensa. Está claro lo bueno que es en lo que hace. La lucha Francisco hizo muy difícil argumentar en contra de aquellos que no le importa un comino o quiere verlo.
Y sí, este es un caso en el que el tamaño importa. Hay algunos que argumentan que Rigondeaux no es menos emocionante que alguien como Floyd Mayweather. En primer lugar, eso no es cierto. Floyd tuvo algunas peleas que podrían ser aburrido. Incluso tenía algunos aficionados a pie hacia fuera en su victoria sobre Carlos Baldomir. Pero Floyd tenía mucha personalidad, un montón de peleas que eran de buena a muy buena visión, y podría poner culos en los asientos.
Y Floyd es un peso welter.
Rigondeaux pesa 122 libras. En el mercado estadounidense, al menos, se necesita algo más para conseguir seguidores de Inversión a la escala se vuelve más clara. Un volumen bajo, estilo defensivo en la clase de Gómez, Morales y Barrera simplemente no pone en el paquete de ellos sin una fuerte pareja de baile.
Así que aquí estamos de nuevo. Rigondeaux está de vuelta fuera de televisión de Estados Unidos, programado para pelear este fin de semana contra el Liverpool James Dickens (21-1, 6 KO) en Liverpool. Por primera vez desde Donaire, Rigondeuax y sus más ardientes seguidores tienen un objetivo nuevo. Ahora tienen que los demás se interesen.
Carl Frampton dice que aceptaría la pelea. El equipo en torno al campeón de la AMB y la FIB recién unificada no parece estar interesado. Si la AMB insiste en Rigondeaux como retador obligatorio, Frampton tiene otro cinturón para mantener su cálido y la posibilidad de un movimiento al peso pluma.
Eso por sí solo puede ser suficiente para que los fieles Rigondeaux disparado de nuevo. La sensación Donaire estaba evitando Rigondeaux (que era un poco absurdo teniendo en cuenta que él luchó un poco más de un año después de entrar en la clase) que ayudó a construir en una pelea más personas querían ver. Más de un millón de espectadores vieron en HBO esa noche, un buen número relativo al boxeo.
Frampton-Rigondeaux no haría un número similar en la televisión de Estados Unidos, pero sería atraer a un montón de aficionados. Amarlo u odiarlo, Rigondeaux contra un enemigo de nivel superior se va a poner los ojos.
Eso es lo que hace que este fin de semana crítico. Asumamos, por ahora, Rigondeaux resuelve los problemas de visado que podría, con días para ir, posponer o cancelar esta pelea.
los aficionados de Estados Unidos podrían no tener la televisión en directo para visualizarla sino el resultado Rigondeaux serán atraer la atención. Si suena deja ver, que va a traer clics en YouTube. Si suena como Francisco ...
... La gente va a estar hablando sobre qué tan pronto un posible Frampton-Leo Santa Cruz en el peso pluma podría estar llegando. Más gente que no es probable que se habla de que de todos modos.
Pero si Rigondeaux puede salirse de la clase de pie eléctrica a través de Dickens que lo hacía antes de Willie Casey en Irlanda, que crea al menos un recordatorio de que está ahí fuera, que puede ser intrigante. Antes Francisco, ventiladores Rigondeaux señalaron la batalla con Hisashi Amagasa para combatir la narrativa que su hombre era aburrido.
Necesitan otra pieza de munición y necesita lo base de fans que tiene que vencer a los tambores. Puede ser divertido ser parte de un culto. No es divertido cuando el objeto de culto que no está haciendo su caso más fuerte.
Eventualmente, alguien de la nota se va a tomar en Rigondeaux nuevo. Las impresiones que hace que cada vez que entra en el anillo podría determinar qué tan pronto que eso ocurra.
Y cuánto más fuerte, o más bajo, el siguiente será mientras espera.
