    Next to Mayweather he is the most talented boxer in boxing yet he's not even fighting multiple times this year? What is going on?

    Nobody willing to fight him plus he's having issues with his promoter rumors are he will sign with Haymon.

    I don't believe no one is willing to fight him. Doesn't he have two belts? Isn't he a ranked fighter? People are willing to fight him but whether or not they'll air on HBO/Sho is another matter.

    Why doesn't he keep fighting in Asia? China and Japan?

    I want to see him fight. Also he could make fights in Asia. Chris John was a champion for a long time and rarely ever fought in the USA. Roy Jones Jr isn't fighting in the USA and still is making fights.

    All Rigondeaux has to do is beat people up. Eventually another champion will be forced to take a risk and fight him.

    Bernard Hopkins had 20 title defenses as a middle weight during a time when no one wanted to see him win.

    news from his manager gary hyde is that some negative infuences are in rigos ear and his looking to get out of contract with who ever his with and sign with someone else even though its breaking the law.

    Its a stupid move at his advancing years as he cant afford to waste time and could spend a long time in legal battles before we see him in the ring again

    Yeah but you don't make up the majority of fans, and in his previous TV outings the majority voted with their remotes and changed the channel while he was on.

    If nobody is watching him fight no company will pay big money for the advertising/ sponsorships and TV companies won't want to show him.

    He's a great fighter but unfortunately people think he's boring.

    He needs another Donaire type opponent and will get back on the map. Lomachenko or Walters
