No bumps in the Cuban corner


The Cuban boxing team lived another wonderful day in the continuation of the world championship in this discipline, which will last until May 14 in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

This Friday, Cienfuegos’ Saidel Horta (57kg) showed his agility on the pavement to easily get rid of Trinidad’s Anthony Joseph 5-0. The young man from the “Pearl of the South” showed confidence in his fight, as we had the opportunity to enjoy a television broadcast of the confrontation, which suggests that the third presentation of the Antilleans, scheduled for next Sunday, will be quite spectacular. , as he will be compared with Dominican Leonel de los Santos, silver medalist at the Pan American Games in Lima in 2019.

One of those who really caused concern in his debut in this event was two-time Olympian Arlen Lopez (80kg), who had to go overboard to defeat India’s Chaudhary Ashish. The Guantanamo man’s victory came with a 5-2 split vote.

The closing of the day was held by Tamers captain Julio Cesar La Cruz (92 kg), who without fear passed the Bosnian Jemal Bosniak (5-0).

On Saturday we will see another of our Olympic champions in action, Roniel Iglesias (67 kg) from Pinar del Rio, who will make his debut in this world tournament with Johnny Fernandez from the Dominican Republic.

His compatriot Lazaro Alvarez (63.5 kg) will enter the ring of the Uzbek Humo Arena for the third time, and Jorge Cuellar (71 kg) will perform for the second time. Yuri Dosreis of Brazil and Simnikiwe Bongko of South Africa will compete for both Cuban fighters.
