HBO done with Rigondeaux?

Three months after his domination of Nonito Donaire, newly crowned undefeated super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux may be on the verge of losing his first match, and it isn't against any opponent. HBO has stated that they do not wish to have Rigondeaux on their network again. Rigondeaux's promoter Bob Arum doesn't think that HBO will go through with the threat. Arum has stated that he just needs to find an opponent for him that will interest HBO. Because Arum doesn't have a relationship with Showtime, HBO may be the only way that Rigondeaux would be able to fight on national television. Rigondeaux dominated Nonito Donaire in April, and HBO may have not liked the way it was done but to beat one of the world's top pound for pound fighter's of the last few years as easily as Rigondeaux did should have earned him way more credit than what he has gotten. It remains to be seen what Rigondeaux's future hold but if anyone knows how to get a fighter's name out there it's Bob Arum
