The Domadores (Tamers) of Cuba is now working to get included at the finals of the 8th edition of the World Series of Boxing (WSB), said Cuban National Boxing Federation president Alberto Puig.
'The priority will be to contribute to the preparation of the fighters that will represent Cuba in the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia, and we will try to give some more action to the second-ranked fighters of the national pre-team,' Puig stated to reporters from Prensa Latina.
Puig also said that a strategy has been devised, to let some young fighters earn some more experience.
'There is the chance that some of the fighetrs will fight in Europe against more demanding rivals, that is the intention of the coaches,' he added.
The executive said that although the priority of Cuban boxing will be to provide the greatest number of titles in the Central-Caribbean event, the World Series is of vital importance.
'Our main challenge will be the Barranquilla games, but in the WSB, we could face teams from Uzbekistan, Great Britain, Russia, Kazakhstan and Italy, all of them with quality,' he said.
He also reminded that the Junior Olympiads and the Junior World Championship will also be important competitions.
