He was also defeated nationally by compatriot superstar Odlanier Solis twice in 2004 at 201 lbs and later went up to super heavy.
He became the Cuban #1 only after Solis (who had gone up in weight, too) defected and he beat veteran Michel López Núñez in the National Championships 2007 and 2008.
He qualified for the 2008 Olympics by beating young American Michael Hunter jr. in the final of their qualifier 9:1.
He lost his first Olympic bout 3:5 to Ukrainian Vyacheslav Glazkov.
He immigrated to the United States in 2012 to begin his professional career. He fought out of Miami, Florida for three years achieving a professional record of 6-0 (2 KO). After his late manager Si Stern's passing in 2015, Robert went a full year without a fight.
He made a strong comeback on June 25, 2016 with a knockout against Charles Daughtry 0:24 seconds into the first round.
He went on to win 3 additional fights from July to September 2016, all by way of unanimous decision.
His winning continued into 2017 with a first-round TKO over Keith Thompson at the BJCC in Birmingham, Alabama on the undercard of Deontay Wilder vs. Gerald Washington on February 25.
His next win came on May 12, 2017 at the inaugural Alabama Boxing Hall of Fame show in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He landed several big hits against opponent Roberto Santos (12-4) throughout the first and second rounds, causing Santos to forfeit at the end of the second round. This was the first stoppage of Santos's career as his four losses up to that point had come by unanimous decision.
Alfonso earned a shot at his first title fight on August 11, 2017. The planned opponent was Devon Vargas, the heavyweight that represented the U.S in the 2004 Summer Olympics. A few weeks out, Vargas broke his jaw, and Birmingham's Jason Bergman stepped in as the new opponent. The fight took place in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and the winner was to take home the vacant USBA Southern Region Heavyweight Title sanctioned by the IBF. Robert emerged victorious by unanimous decision after a tough ten-round battle.
He finished the year with a six-round unanimous decision victory over opponent Ronny Hale in Alexandria, Louisiana.
He currently splits his training time between Dallas, TX, and Tuscaloosa, AL.
