Court enjoins Guillermo Rigondeaux from Participating in Sept. 15 bout vs. Robert Marroquin

MIAMI, FL - A Circuit Court hearing was held this morning in Miami and the Court enjoined World Boxing Association World Super Bantamweight Champion Guillermo “El Chacal” Rigondeaux (10-0, 8 KOs) from engaging in any bout not approved by his manager, Gary Hyde, and also enjoined Rigondeaux from participating in a September 15 fight previously announced by Top Rank.

Top Rank had scheduled Rigondeaux to defend his WBA title on Sept. 15 against Robert Marroquin (22-1, 15 KOs) on the Sergio Martinez-Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. HBO Pay-Per-View event, live from the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, the Rigondeaux-Top Rank contract expired prior to that date and Mr. Hyde had not approved the September 15 date and had, in fact, obtained lucrative offers from other promoters. At that point Top Rank sought to schedule Mr. Rigondeaux without Mr. Hyde’s permission.
Hyde has been Rigondeaux’s manager since the two-time Olympic gold medalist defected from Cuba in 2007.
