Havana, Oct 5 (ACN) With three cartels in Mexico, this month will bet that five of the well-named try to maintain the undefeated franchise since they debuted on the professional circuits, represented by the Golden Ring company.

The seasoned troop of head trainer Rolando Acebal has signed a whopping 13 consecutive wins, and 10 of those fights have ended before the expected round limit, which demonstrates the good work of the Cubans backed by their golden scrolls in Olympic games and World Championships.

The first to fight in October will be three-time world champion Lázaro Álvarez (135 pounds) from Pinar del Río, who already has two victories and will be seen this Friday against host Brandom Obledo, in a scheduled eight-round fight based in Hermosillo, Mexico.

Meanwhile, on the 21st, Roniel Iglesias (147 pounds), also from Pinar del Rio and two-time Olympic champion, will take the floor. In Tijuana, Mexico, he will face Venezuelan Juan Ruiz, who has fought 34 fights in rented boxing.

And for the 28th, in a planned poster at the Palenque of the San Marcos Fair, in Aguascalientes, Mexico, three other Tamers from Cuba will cross gloves with rivals yet to be defined.

There, world bronze medalist Osvel Caballero (130 pounds) and Olympic gold medalist Arlen López (175 pounds) will fight, while world champion Yosbany Veitía (118 pounds) will make his debut.

Alberto Puig de la Barca, president of the Cuban boxing federation, told ACN that all Cuban boxers will fight eight rounds, except for Veitía, who will fight six rounds as a debutant.
