Just two days ago, last November 14, we report on this website on the international boxing top held in the Dutch city of Rotterdam, in which four of the Cuban boxers who participated in the World Cup in Belgrade, capital of Serbia, entered the ring, including the three gold medalists who catapulted the Antillean cast to the leadership by countries,

The holders of the world Yoenlis Hernández (75 kg) and Julio César La Cruz (92 kg), both from Camagüey, as well as the Olympic monarch of Tokyo and eliminated in the first round in Belgrade, the Pinar del Río Roniel Iglesias (71 kg), fell from the ring with victory in their hands, by unanimous decision of the judges of 5-0.

However, to the surprise of the followers of the Cuban boxing, Andy Cruz, multi-Olympic and world champion from Matanzas, gold in Tokyo and Serbia (selected as the best fighter of the contest), lost his fight, by split decision, against local idol Delano James, in a fight agreed at 67 kg , higher than the weight of the Cuban, but according to Alberto Puig de la Barca, Andy deserved the victory for his work on the ring. And apparently, the Cuban delegation was right (see the fight here)

As reported today on his Twitter profile by the journalist Hernández Luján, the Cuban boxing authorities present at the venue complained to the organizers of the event and after reviewing the video of the fight, Andy Cruz was declared the winner against his Dutch opponent.

In this way, Andy Cruz, for many the best Cuban boxer of today and among the most outstanding, pound for pound, in the world, he remains undefeated in the ring since April 20, 2019, when he lost against the French Sofiane Oumiha, also in a friendly cap held in Gallic lands. Since that date, the man from Matanzas has accumulated 34 online successes without the shadow of the reverse, including this last “rectified” victory.
