Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Joseph Agbeko: Preview and Prediction for Title Fight

Guillermo Rigondeaux will return to the ring for the first time since dominating Nonito Donaire in April.

Guillermo Rigondeaux vs. Joseph Agbeko will take place on Saturday night at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J., and the WBA and WBO super bantamweight titles will be on the line. It will be the first fight back for Rigo since defeating Nonito Donaire in April, and for Agbeko, will represent only his second fight since 2011.

Rigondeaux didn't just beat Donaire in April, he embarrassed him. It was a brilliant tactical performance, with a strong emphasis on defense and counterpunching, but it didn't win him many fans. He'll be looking to justify his continued investment to the HBO suits on Saturday night with a big performance.

Agbeko is a former two-time bantamweight champion, but he has only won one fight since 2010. He's been relatively inactive of late—this is just his second fight since dropping a decision to Abner Mares in 2011—and will be a massive underdog when he walks into the ring.

All the knowledge you need for this fight is contained within. This is your complete preview and prediction for Rigondeaux vs. Agbeko!
