Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux, who defected from Cuba in February wins pro debut
Rigondeaux, who defected from Cuba in February, was not as busy with his punches but still wore down Noriega in their junior featherweight bout.

Rigondeaux, 28, scored a knockdown earlier in the bout but seemed content to casually feel his way through his debut.
An Olympic gold medalist in 2000 and 2004, Rigondeaux defected from Cuba with Yudel Johnson and Yordanis Despaigne, teammates on the country's amateur team. Johnson and Despaigne also won their debuts.

A fourth Cuban, Erislandy Lara, improved to 6-0 with a knockout on the same card.
