“I do not like to lower the self-esteem or belittle my opponent, but this boxer from China demanded me a bit in the fight and I have to keep preparing myself better.”
Cuba wins all the five games.

“The opponent is an experienced one. I felt nervous in the first round, but I became calm after the first round. I found my rhythm for the next four rounds. I wanted to win, but unfortunately I lost.”
