Havana.- Cuban boxers will meet a difficult challenge at the 12th World Championship, scheduled for this month in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand.

According to Cuban experts, the largest Antillean Island will defend its world title by teams, won in the previous championship.

In order to achieve that goal, the Cuban team includes six world champions, although the other federations will take their best boxers to Bangkok.

The world champions in Belfast’2001 who made the Cuban team are Yan Bartelemí (48 kg), Guillermo Rigondeaux (54), Mario Kindelán (60), Diogenes Luna (64), Lorenzo Aragon (69) and Odlanier Solís (91).
Cuba’s expectations to win gold medals lie on those boxers, although other team members, such as Johanson Martínez (81), Yordanis Despaigne (75), Yuriolquis Gamboa (51), Yudenis González (57) and Pedro Carrion ( 91), are expected to give excellent performances as well.
