Cuba exploded onto the pro-style boxing scene with an emphatic win in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) over the Mexico Guerreros in Mexico City. In a highly anticipated exhibition match, the Cuban boxers competed in their first officially sanctioned pro-style match in more than fifty years on Thursday and Friday this week against fellow Latin American powerhouse team, the Mexico Guerreros.
Having adopted a team name of the "Domadores" (Tamers) the Cubans certainly proved themselves worthy of the moniker. Their rivals, the Mexico Guerreros are no push-over team. Semi-finalists in the last season of the WSB, with three years of experience in the tournament and an outstanding home record this should have been a tighter affair than it actually was.
