Mario César Kindelán Mesa
He is currently experiencing a winning streak, which started with the 1999 Pan American Games title. Since then, he's won every major event he has entered, including the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, three world championships (1999, 2001, 2003), and the 2003 Pan American Games. His most recent victory was at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, defeating Amir Khan in the final, and retaining his gold medal from four years prior.
Kindelán was named among the top ten athletes in Cuba for 1999, as well as being selected 'Best Boxer in Cuba' in the same year.
Kindelán is expected to announce his retirement soon, following his announcement in early 2004 that he wants to retire after winning his second Olympic gold medal.
