Three Cuban fighters climbed the ball on Saturday night in the United States and the results were positive. Balance of two victories and a draw left for our navy this March 2, which presaged important for the future of the island's shakers.
In the most promoted duel, Guantanamo boxer Erislandy Lara tied with Argentine defending champion Brian Castaño in a match at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
After 12 rounds, the judges left 115-113 for Castaño, 115-113 for Lara and a third for 114-114. Thus, the South American maintained the universal belt of 154 pounds of the World Boxing Association.
The fight was quite even; however, Lara, known for his excellent boxing fencing and elegant riposta boxing, looked a bit slow on hands and legs and could not contain the attacks in the short distance of a brave and powerful chestnut.
In the own installation, the super heavy Luis Ortiz surpassed by unanimous vote to Christian Hammer in a fight agreed to 10 rounds. The Camagüeyan showed once again that he is ready to go again for a crown of the orb.
Also, after a year and five months of official inactivity, the minor of the Barthelemy Clan, Leduán, unanimously defeated the Mexican Miguel Angel Aispuro. This excellent demonstration can give the Havana good opportunities in the future.
