Default If Cuba wasn't communist, would PR still dominate Latino Carribean boxing?

Puerto Rico has produced some of the finest fighters and world champions the world has ever seen.

But I want to know how different do you think it would have been if Cuban fighters were allowed to turn professional. Would Puerto Ricans still be the kings of Latino-Carribean boxing.

I guess that is hard to say since Cuban trains all of it's fighters to fight like Amateurs and Puerto Rico trains all of it's fighter to fight like pros

Cuba is still larger by some wide margin
Population Cuba 11 Mil
Puerto Rico not even 4 Mil

No doubt that Cuba would be a competitive force. We already have a few defectors on ESPN who are gradually making the transition from their long extesive amateur careers over to pro.

There's no telling, but Cuba has some potential superstars in the making.

If Cuba wasn't communist...both countries would form a huge boxing rivalry.
