Arena CEO Ahmet Öner confirms that two-times Olympic Gold Medallist Guillermo Rigondeaux has finally defected from Cuba , has arrived in Miami, Florida, and signing with Arena Box-Promotion.
“It’s true”, says Öner. “Our director of boxing operations in the USA, Luis DeCubas, has met Rigondeaux in Miami.
"Obviously, we are excited that this extraordinarily gifted athlete joins our team of Cuban world class boxers like Yuriorkis Gamboa, Erislandy Lara and Odlanier Solis.
"They will train together at our gym in Miami. We will announce everything else and answer questions on a press conference in Miami next week.”
