Dual gold medalists Vasyl Lomachenko, Guillermo Rigondeaux to meet, make history Dec. 9 in New York

Vasyl Lomachenko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux Announced for Dec. 9

But the former Cuban amateur star, who has long claimed 118 pound as his natural weight, will be moving up two weight classes to face Lomachenko, of Ukraine. Lomachenko won his first world title in just his third pro fight and became the quickest fighter to win titles at two weight divisions when he did so in just his seventh bout.

As WBN reported through Caribe Promotions earlier this week, Rigondeaux was awaiting a formal answer from Lomachenko and Top Rank to his original challenge and now gets his wish before the end of the year.

Lomachenko, 29, was 396-1 as an amateur, while Rigondeaux was 463-12 in the amateurs.

Commodities - Crude Oil Settles Higher, Best Performance in 7-Weeks
-The price drop in Asia comes following sharp gains throughout the week as USA oil facilities recover operations post hurricanes. That was followed by the International Energy Agency report in 2017 by 100,000 barrels a day (bpd) to 1.6m bpd, or 1.7%.

The meeting between the skilled fighters will pit the offensively creative Lomachenko (9-1, seven knockouts) against the defensive brilliance of Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) in a matchup that has intrigued boxing insiders for years. "He has a voracious appetite to fight the best, and to fight the guys who people think are the most hard fighters".

"So, if this fight is going to happen, it needs to take place now and at a catchweight that is fair to both of us".

After a run of obscure fights that caused many to lose interest, Rigondeaux let his hands go June 17 in what was originally ruled a first-round knockout of Mexico's Moises Flores.

There are only three men who have won three Olympic gold medals in boxing: Cubans Teofilo Stevenson and Felix Savon and Hungary's Laszlo Papp. Four of the multiple gold-medal winners are active: Shields, Rigondeaux, Lomachenko and Zou Shiming.

Cuba's Rigondeaux, 36, won Olympic gold medals in 2000 and 2004 and has dominated foes with his elusiveness and speed. "That's a landmark. I'm being honest". I asked for this fight and I got it!

I have to side with Lomachenko to win this fight. That's a landmark and those are historic things to have under your belt.
