Rigondeaux stops Dickens in 2

Rigondeaux stops Dickens in 2

By Joseph Correa


Cuban sensation Guillermo Rigondeaux didn't have to do much as he retired James Dickens on his stool after round 2 with a broken jaw. 

The opening round started out like many of Rigondeaux's fights with Rigo landing at will and making his opponent miss. Dickens looked game enough however and didn't show any signs of being intimidated. 

At the start of the second round, Rigondeaux landed a flush left hand to the jaw of Dickens which was by far the cleanest of the fight and would be the shot that ultimately left Jazza with a broken jaw and unable to continue as his corner called a halt to the bout at the end of the round. 

After the fight, Rigo said he wants big fights and wants to give the fans what they want. Time is ticking and father time has a way of stopping every fighter at some point.
