Kennedy then challenged the highly respected Guillermo Rigondeaux for the WBA Super Bantamweight crown on June 9, 2012 as part of the Manny Pacquiao – Timothy Bradley Pay Per View undercard.
Although Kennedy came up short, he showed heart by continuing to get off the canvas until the bout was stopped in 5th round.
Since that defeat, Kennedy has fought very well as he moved up to Jr. Lightweight and has scored wins over Carlos Vinan and in his last bout when he fought through a broken jaw but still was able to win a 10 round unanimous decision over Joselito Collado (13-2) on August 24, 2013 in Atlantic City.
“I decided to sign with Mark after what I have seen what he has done with his other fighters”, said Kennedy.
“He takes good care of his fighters and I don’t mean with money.  He gives great advice about life and he has already provided me with a good strength and conditioning program.”
“I feel I need two more fights and I will be in a good spot.  I know that Mark and my promoter Russell Peltz are on the same page and have a good plan going forward.”, finished Kennedy.
“We are very happy to have Teon in the fold and part of our team”, said Cipparone.
“He is a proven fighter who is just a couple fights removed from fighting for a world championship.  He is a great talent and we look forward to getting him back to that title fight and we have the confidence that he will be a world champion.”
Kennedy is promoted by Peltz Boxing and is trained by Wade and Randy Hinnant.
