William Rigondeaux It has been everything in Olympic . Two gold medals at the Games in Sydney and Athens mark his palms. His duel as a professional against the other great dominator in the amateur field, Vasyl Lomachenkowas as expected as it was disappointing by the Cuban.

At the beginning of March, the ‘Jackal’ suffered a serious domestic accident in which an express pot exploded in his face while he was cooking at home, causing significant injuries to his eyes. His agent then stated that they thought “the worst” because of how his face looked after the incident.

Now, at 41 years old, Rigondeaux has shown a photo of his face, in which it can be seen that he suffered significant burns. “Every night when I close my eyes this is what I see, sometimes it’s hard to forget,” Rigo wrote in the publication. The one from Santiago de Cuba is still recovering and has not specified how his vision evolves, since he lost part of it in this accident.
