Guillermo Rigondeaux was born 1980 in Santiago de Cuba. He is decided as the best bantamweight fighter ever seen on the ring. As amateur he had 400 fights in which he lost only 12! He has won all the most prestigious amateur tournaments repeatedly. Rigondeaux won seven straight Cuban Nationals, has been two times Olympic Champion- in Sydney'2000 and Athens'2004, twice won World Championships- in Belfast'2001 and Myangyang'2005, had two World Cups- in Astana'2002 and Moscow'2005, and once captured PanAmerican Games in Santo-Domingo'2003.
In February, 2009, Rigondeaux with the fellow-boxer defected from the Cuban delegation and later travelled to Miami, Florida, where he sign his professional contract.
As the pro, Rigondeaux earned the nickname El Chacal (The Jackal), the famous coach Freddie Roach said, that Guillermo is, probably, the biggest talent he had ever seen.
