This emotional video captures the moment WBO champion Robeisy Ramirez was reunited with his young daughter, who he had not seen in 5 years since defecting from communist Cuba in 2018.
In a tweet by Ramirez featuring the video, he had this to say about the reunion (my translation):
The optimist in me always knew it. There are stories with a happy ending. When I left Cuba, I left everything behind. Even a piece of my heart, which circumstances tore away from me. What I didn’t lose was hope, or the promise as a father to see each other again. After 5 years of anxiously waiting, today Renata, the promise is fulfilled, and my heart is full again. I love you, daughter!
