Oct 25, -- Cuban delegation will fight from today with no margin for error at the World Boxing Championship Almaty-2013 to aspire to fulfill their goal of regaining the top spot by countries of the contest.
Cuba, crowned in Mianyang-2005, has a complicated task because it only has 5 fighters while the Kazakh hosts have 8.
For that reason, Cubans can not lose again, especially the 2 Cubans that will fight this Friday against tough Kazakh opponents: the Guadalajara 2011 runner-up Yosbany Veitía (49 kg) and the World Champion in Baku-2011 Lazaro Alvarez (60).
There will also try to ensure at least the silver medal of Yasnier Toledo against the Mongolian Munkh-Erdene Uranchimeg in 64 kg., Arisnoidys Despaigne clash against the Venezuelan Gabriel Maestre in 69, and that of Julio César La Cruz vs. Joseph Ward in 81.
Latin America has also improved the color of its metals with Costa Rican David Rodriguez and Brazilians Everton Lopes (64) and Robson Conceicao (60), who will also have very hard bumps local Merey Akshalov and Italian Domenico Valentino, in that order.
The other Latin American still in competition is Argentine Yamil Peralta, who also have shown credentials in this event, and will have another acid test when facing Russian Evgeny Tishchenko.
In the fight for countries, Kazakhstan have an advantage because it still have 8 boxers in action, Cuba has 5, and Russia 4, and everything will be more clear after this semifinal's day.
