There is probably no sporting event with a tradition and history as rich as the Olympics. For over a century, millions have thronged to see men and women represent their country, and battle it out for pride, passion and glory across a variety of sporting events.
Boxing has been a part of the Olympics from as far back as 1904. 112 years later, as we count down to the Rio Olympics in 2016, we count down the greatest boxers in Olympic history. These men from across the world fought for a place in history, and today we recognize their achievements with this list.

Born in Cuba, Ringondeaux is already a legend in the world of boxing as the WBA (Super) and lineal super bantamweight champion. But he is considered one of the greatest amateur boxers of all time too, having won consecutive gold medals in the 2000 and 2004 Summer Olympics in the bantamweight division.
A documentary on Guillermo is already in the works and promises to be a treat for boxing fans.
