Without fear, I assure you that all the delegations are today with their eyes wide open before the debut of the Cuban team during the third round of the World Boxing Championships, based in Doha, Qatar.
The well endorsed Domadores of the World Series of Boxing have now been "seeded" in the draw for their respective divisions and had a bye in the first round. But from now on begins their performance in the demanding tournament, which will provide 23 tickets for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro 2016. Cuba wants to go to that appointment with a full team, for which it has already "resolved" five seats.
So, according to the results of the first round in the Qatar ring, the five Caribbeans debuting have already had the opportunity to observe their respective rivals. And so the process becomes more transparent.
Namely, the young flyweight Joahnys Argilagos will face the Spaniard Samuel Carmona, and the Pan American holder Andy Cruz (56) will be against the Russian Bakhtovar Nazirov.
Meanwhile, twice world runner up Yasnier Toledo (64) will have a mere formality against unknown Moroccan Abdelhak Aatakni, and the fourth will be up to the Pan American champion Arlen Lopez (75), who will rival the Slovenian Ailaj Venko. The list will close with Erislandy Savon (91), in front of a well-known older fighter, the Ecuadorian Julio Castillo, who he has already defeated in the last World Series, in which the South American competed as a strengthener for the Mexico Warriors.
Certainly, the ring has the last word. But my prediction is for five Cuban victories.
