A fighter's reputation can be tarnished for many reasons, but in a world where blatant cheaters such as, Antonio Margarito, are easily reinstated, Guillermo Rigondeaux has no reason to bow his head in shame. The master boxer and greatest amateur boxer ever, gave up in his last outing against Lomachenko; who campaigned at 2 weight divisions above Rigondeaux. The 37 yr old Cuban fighter began his career in 2009 at 122lbs. Now for some boxers moving up in weight is inevitable, but in Guillermo's case he's was already an older fighter at 29 yrs of age and settled into this weight class. So the move to 130 lbs was a brave one, on top of moving up to fight one of the best fighters in the world today. Another amateur phenomenon, winning 2 Olympic gold medals. Everyone wants to see a fighter go out on his shield, but there are times when an injured fighter feels defeated and then it is pointeless to continue. He sustained an injury to one of his hands and bowed out hopefully to fight healthy another day. It wasn't my favorite performance but it disnt negate all he has done prior to that fight and he gets credit for moving up 2 divisions and challenging the best. Others such as Oscar De La Hoya were forgiven and still called great after quitting on the stool vs. Pacquiao at the age of 35. I believe if he returns to his natural weight class, he may still have a couple more fights in him. If not, then I commend @rigoelchacal305 on all his achievements. Dios te bendiga campeón
