Cuba To Create Their Own World Series of Boxing

Cuba will set up the National Series of Boxing (NSB), an adaptation of the world contest, in which current edition the island's "Domadores" are intervening successfully, the local federation of the discipline said in Havana Tuesday.

This new tournament will allow enlarging the number of athletes familiarized with "certain competitive peculiarities", while maintaining the collective matches and the essence of the classificatory schedule, said Cuba's sports official site Jit.

Its preliminary stages will be distributed in the western, central and oriental regions, though the fights will contain four rounds, and providing a single ticket per area to the final event.

The first stage will be held in Matanzas city from April 4-9, as well as in Camagey and Holguin from April 4-8, with action in the categories of 49, 56, 64, 75 and 91 kilograms (C-1).

Another segment will fight in 52, 60, 69, 81 and over 91 kilograms (C-2) in the cities of Pinar del Rio, Villa Clara and Las Tunas, starting on April 30.

In both stages the teams will be allowed to prepare up to 16 contestants, two as minimum for weight, because each presentation demands to rest during the following days. The conclusive phase, with five-round combats, will take place from June 24-29 in the Havana Sport City, receiving the three regional pointers, reinforced with members of the pre-selection elite, non acting before, the source said.

Cuba participated at the 4th World Series of Boxing, a semi- professional competition sponsored by the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA).
