Guillermo Rigondeaux will return to the ring next month.

The former WBO world champion, from Cuba, is set to challenge for a new belt on December 4.

Rigondeaux was stripped of his WBO crown due to inactivity and placed as the champion in recess by the WBA in order for the Carl Frampton-Scott Quigg unification clash.

He will turn up at the EY Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and will face Mario Briones (26-4-2, 19KOs) for the vacant WBC Latino super bantamweight title.

A win against the 29-year-old Mexican will lead to a final eliminator shot with the Boxing Council.

Negotiations have begun for Rigondeaux to face undefeated Mexican Rey Vargas (25-0, 20KOs) in that aforementioned clash to determine the mandatory challenger for newly crowned champion Julio Ceja.
