On July 22, 2007, Rigondeaux and teammate [[Erislandy Lara]] failed to appear for their scheduled bouts at the Pan American Games in Brazil. The no-show raises speculation that both boxers have fled Cuban delegation with the hopes of turning professional. Rigondeaux is to turn professional,and will join fellow 2004 Cuban Olympians [[Odlanier Solis]], [[Yuriorkis Gamboa]] and [[Yan Barthelemy]], who defected earlier in 2007. As with the other Cuban defectors, Rigondeaux has signed a promotional deal with [[Ahmet Öner]] and Arena-Box Promotion.[http://www.boxingconfidential.com/articles.php?id=2217]
