did rigondeaux sign with roc? 

 

these fools think they can throw money at stuff and things will happen? this is boxing. waaaaay different beast. u don't step on toes the way they have out the gate and make progress. these cats like 50 and jayz are not gonna last. i feel bad for the fighters that signed with them. they're the ones that have the most to lose. 

That's been my reservation from the start....you can't just throw money at guys and expect them to bend. Whether these guys are with Haymon, GBP, TR, or whatever....they know their situation and there's no need to tamper with it. Consistency is key, and I don't believe RN has that in place.

Rigondeaux is not signed with them, they were trying to sign him but nothing has happened thus far

Technically, RN making the same mistakes as 50 did. Boxing isn't a bottomless pit like rap music has become, it maybe a cut throat business but it's definitely not accepting of those who just come in and attempt to play by a different set of rules

i cannot help but think that ward is going to be the casualty in this roc nation expiriment. 

 

ward/kessler 2??? really? 

 

i wish he would have thought that through better. 

 

as for rigondeaux....he has too many cooks in the kitchen. caribe promotions....his manager....i heard that haymon was willing to sign him if he dropped caribe. i'm wondering what any of these guys are doing for him. the smart move would have been with haymon.

Link?

Because I read something from Steve Kim and they can't find any network to take him on because he wants an expensive tuneup fight

I hope this Ward/Roc Nation deal doesn't fold. If so, then hopefully Ward's smart enough to find Haymon and get some real guidance.

imo, that's exactly where he should have went.

I'd love to see the plans on AW, because right now RN sinking. I think we'll be lucky to see him fight even once this year
