Cuban boxing is not the same one it was years ago, but it still retains its world class, and is expected to maintain once more its vanguard ranking and contribute to Cuba’s results in the London 2012 Olympic Games. It has a pending debt since Beijing 2008, when it did not obtain any gold medals.
The much publicized battle between Cuban Dayron Robles and Chinese Liu Xiang for the gold medal in the 110 hurdle-race of the upcoming Olympic Games will be anthological, no doubt about it. However, does this qualify them for a title in London 2012? In my humble opinion, it does not. At this height of the season, neither one of the Olympic champions can sleep in peace, and much less consider himself the indisputable favorite, all the more after the fabulous irruption on the scene of U.S. athlete Aries Merritt.
