Today at the popular Cuban Restaurant Versalles in Miami, FL a press conference was held where newly crowned WBO jr. featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux officially recieved the belt he took from Nonito Donaire on April 13 from the hands of WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel.

It was a full house with lots of emotions where Rigondeaux was accompanied by his co-promoter Boris Arencibia and Luis Fonseca of Caribe Promotions, Major League pitcher Livan Hernandez, former Olympic and world champion Joel Casayamor, trainer Pedro Luis Diaz, former amateur world champion Ramon Garbey and WBO Vice President Joe Hernandez amongst others.
