On Saturday night, Dec. 7, Cuba’s Guillermo Rigondeaux again put on another clinic in outclassing former bantamweight titlist Joseph Agbeko inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Rigondeaux, the sport’s reigning WBA and WBO junior featherweight champion, had his Ghanaian foe completely befuddled on his way to the shutout victory.

And while pure boxing enthusiasts will always be able to appreciate the kind of displays that Rigondeaux is able to produce, former HBO analyst Larry Merchant, who was ringside calling the bout for Top Rank’s international feed, seemed less then enthused.

On Saturday night, WBA/WBO junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux produced another sterling performance in shutting down former bantamweight titlist Joseph Agbeko over twelve one-sided rounds.

So dominant was Rigondeaux that Agbeko appeared to be lost at times, as he simply couldn’t figure out a way to crack through the defensive wizardry that the Cuban marvel possesses.

In the wake of another virtuoso dispay, Rigondeaux spoke with HBO’s Max Kellerman and confirmed that he has been listening to the critics who claim his lack of excitement hinders his overall marketability as a prizefighter.
