He's for real.
Santana is 24; he turns 25 in April. Baseball players from Latin countries (not just Cubans) lie about their age all the time, but it makes more sense for them to do so in that sport. They can sign lucrative long-term contracts that rely, in part, on their projected longevity. Boxers, on the other hand, don't benefit the same way from downplaying their ages. The contract structures and expectations are different.

Angelo was twice Cuban national champion. That alone speaks favorably for his experience and skills. If Santana looks polished, it's due to that and his natural talent. You can't teach a lot of what "La Cobra" had on display last night.
