Before entering the professional world of boxing, Guillermo Rigondeaux first dominated
the Olympic Games during his younger years where he won two Olympic gold medal for
Cuba.
And now that the Tokyo Games 2020 have been concluded, Rigondeaux looked back to
his old days and drew motivation from it.
“It has been a very focused camp, and I have found inspiration watching the Olympics,
and it has lit a spark in me. Winning two gold medals in my early years gives me added
incentive to win this fight,” he said as reported by Manila Bulletin.
Just like Manny Pacquiao, Rigondeaux wants to prove that he still has it more than the
belt at stake.
“I want to prove to the world that I am one of the best boxers ever, and that I have a lot
left to give in this sport. I am confident that I am going to do that against the most
avoided fighter in my weight class. Casimero is a dangerous fighter and a very powerful
puncher, but I’m going to tame him with great boxing skills.”
“I am motivated to work hard, not just to reach my own goals, but by all the young
fighters in the gym who are driven and focused. The atmosphere has brought
something new out of me. I’m revived and feeling young again,”
