Rigondeaux, Hyde Sever Ties, Cuban Now Free Agent

By Elliot Foster (@FreelanceFoz)

Guillermo Rigondeaux may soon be back in the ring after his managerial situation was solved.

The Cuban amateur sensation, who currently holds the WBA Super and WBO super bantamweight titles, has ended his working relationship with Gary Hyde.

Rigondeaux revealed the news, via a statement, that his contract with Hyde had ended and that he will now be listening to offers from several managers before moving forward.

Having been inactive since last December, the 34-year-old now hopes he can get his career back on track again.

“I am officially a free agent,” the two-time Olympic gold medal winner said in a statement to BoxingScene.

“I will be contacting the managers of the best fighters in boxing such as Frank Espinoza, Cameron Dunkin and Al Haymon to be able to see who can negotiate me the best deals moving forward in order to remain a dominant figure in the sport and to provide the best opportunity for my family and my career.”

Elsewhere, Hassan N’Dam — a former IBF middleweight world title challenger — has had his contract with Hyde terminated.
