Hyde/McCrory et al wanted Rigondeux as the front man for a push on the U.S.

Well Cuba after the UK has the most Glass Jawed fighters per capita.

It is not my fault.

Lara is an exciting fighter to watch and I am a fan.

In almost every thread your on here saying "(Country) has so many Glass Jawed fighters...Can you tell me your defintion of "Glass Jaw" and maybe name some "Glass Jawed" Cubans?

Depends on how long the fights go. ESPN needs to fill a 2 hour time slot. Sometimes they'll play 4 or 5 of the fights if there are a bunch of quick knockouts, and they don't always play the fights they say they'll play in advance.

The plan was to get them over by the end of the year but unfortunately Big Mike has injured his shoulder so it looks like he wont be back until september. I would hazzard a guess that they will be over early next year.

Now ARENA-Box has him I'm not sure
Rignodeaux is making his pro debut on US TV in Miami on ESPN2, if that answers your question.

Unlike Hyde, Arena Box actually has resources in the US and regularly puts on fights in the US. If US exposure is what he wants, Arena is in a much better position to get him that than Gary Hyde.

Out until September? That's bad news. Hopefully he'll get better sooner!
