After some waiting, the Cuban squad is already known for the final of the fourth edition of the World Series of Boxing the coming June 6 and 7 against the Baku Fires at their headquarters in the Azeri capital, at the Olympic Sports Center ‘ Serhedchi ‘.
The Domadores will be led by Olympic champion in Londres’12 Roniel Iglesias (69 Kg) and two-time world champions Lazaro Alvarez (60 Kg) and Julio Cesar La Cruz (81 Kg) , who together with flyweight Yosbany Veitía and heavyweight Erislandy Savon both undefeated in seven combats and occupants of first place in the ranking of its divisions, are the main trump cards of the Cuban team .
In the most favorable forecasts for the conquest of the scepter by the Cubans people put much trust in what light welter Yasnier Toledo can do. His five wins against one loss, and his first place in his division so far, presage a defining battle in the match probably against Azerbaijan Gaybatulla Gadzhialiyev , author of his only missteps . However, if that combat did happen, the good form shown by Toledo in his fights, rising date after date, will favor him in the possible rematch.
The team is completed by Gerardo Cervantes (52 Kg), Norland Yera (56 Kg), Arlen Lopez (75 Kg), José Ángel Larduet (+91 kg) and another welterweight Arisnoidys Despaigne, who will have the task of winning the tie break in If the match ends tied at five wins apiece, as many envision.
Despaigne has in the tournament as three wins without loss, which has made him the second in their division, only surpassed by his opponent at home Roniel Iglesias, but the rest of the fighters, though none will take the ring for the first time in the Series, lack of credentials or favoritism to beat potential rivals.
It is still amazing the announcement, once again, of the absence of Olympic champion Robeisy Ramirez. His inclusion will undoubtedly lead to favorable forecasts 6-4 to Cubans, but the mystery still haunts the division and either training absences, indiscipline, low shape, or other reasons, he should see the final from home.
