The boxers from Cienfuegos carried out an excellent performance in the Playa Girón National Tournament, where with a small delegation of six athletes, they won three medals and played the same number of finals, to greatly improve their previous performance, which occurred in 2019.

Without a doubt, the revelation of Cienfuegos was the 63-kilogram Erislandy Álvarez Borges, who managed to proclaim himself monarch of the division, in addition to winning the award for Most Combative Athlete of the event.

Deivis Abreu Triana and Saidel Horta Rodríguez del Rey finished in silver, runners-up in 48 and 57, respectively, where the more experienced Billy Rodríguez and Osvel Caballero fell.

In the end, Cienfuegos far improved from the eleventh place of 2019, and now concluded in sixth place with 18 units. Camagüey, Guantánamo and Sancti Spiritus ranked from one to three in that order.
