I jist read this article on espn. well itbrings an interesting issue once Castro resigned now.

ESPN - Changing Cuba may alter the face of boxing - Boxing

I personally think openning it all the way for boxers to turn pro wouldnt be so good at all, as for quality. I think they should be at least 21-22 years old and have some amateur pedigree to be able to do that, otherwise some kids would just rushing in and it will start resembling some of what we already see in the U.S.

THoughts?

Being the son of Cuban immagrants, this saddens me. I know my people are capable of so much, but are being held back by this monster.

The Great boxers that we Americans have missed out on becuase of communism in Cuba is a damn shame.

Thank God at least Yuriorkis escaped. Too bad he is already 27 though. Could you imagine what he could have accomplished by now when the guy is ranked #5 in his division in just 9 fights?

He's not the only one.

Viva Cuba Libre LOL

Yuriorkis looks amazing. I can't wait until he fights some solid competition and makes them look silly.
