Lomachenko-Rigondeaux

Boxing

It turns out that Guillermo Rigondeaux’s left hand is not broken. Complaining of pain on the top of his left hand, Rigondeaux, a southpaw, simply quit after the sixth round of what had been an utterly one-sided domination by the brilliant junior lightweight world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko on Saturday night in their heavily hyped fight at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. It was the only time that two-time Olympic gold medalists had ever met in a professional boxing ring and Rigondeaux (17-1, 11 KOs) shocked many by getting outclassed and quitting. Now it looks even worse for him since the hand is not broken and he had no major injury. “No break, but severe contusion on left hand,” Dino Duva, Rigondeaux’s promoter from Roc Nation Sports, told ESPN via text message on Tuesday. Rigondeaux, a reigning junior featherweight world titleholder, moved up two weight classes for the bout and, because he lost, he is due to be stripped of the belt as part of the WBA’s pre-fight ruling.

Junior lightweight world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko and Guillermo Rigondeaux both were randomly tested by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association during the lead up to their fight on Saturday night at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York, and both had their final tests come back negative on Monday. Lomachenko toyed with Rigondeaux from start until finish – when Rigondeaux quit on his stool after the sixth round – to retain his title for the fourth time in the first-ever professional fight between two-time Olympic gold medalists.

Katie Taylor

Boxing

Showtime, which has embraced live streaming for bouts that would otherwise go unseen legally in the United States, announced Tuesday that it will deliver live coverage of Katie Taylor’s first defense of her lightweight world title, against Jessica McCaskill, on Wednesday from York Hall in London. Showtime will also stream seven undercard bouts with it for free on the Showtime YouTube channel and Showtime Facebook page beginning at 1 p.m. ET. Taylor (7-0, 4 KOs), 31, a two-time Olympian from Ireland, won the vacant belt by lopsided decision against Anahi Esther Sanchez on Oct. 28. McCaskill (5-1, 3 KOs), 31, of Chicago, has won four fights in a row. “This last-minute opportunity comes in cooperation with Matchroom Boxing and furthers this network’s industry-leading commitment to the resurgence of women’s boxing and to expanding boxing’s penetration on social media,” Showtime said in its announcement. The undercard includes many of the best prospects from the United Kingdom, including welterweight Conor Benn, cruiserweight Lawrence Okolie, welterweight Josh Kelly and lightweight Joe Cordina.
