WSBV Cuba

Since entering the World Series of Boxing (WSB) at the beginning of Season IV, Cuba Domadores have been virtually unbeatable in the competition, with just one defeat in their history.

After becoming WSB Champions in their debut WSB season with a narrow victory over Azerbaijan Baku Fires, the Domadores began Season V in similarly exceptional form.

Cuba won all 14 matches in the Regular Season, and eight 5-0 whitewashes further bolstered that staggering record.

With just seven individual losses against 43 wins, Cuba rarely looked in danger across the group stages this season, and are able to deploy world class boxers in every weight class.

A Cuban fighter placed at least fifth in the rankings of each WSB division, with five of their competitors finishing in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games quota positions.

In a squad that boasts multiple Olympic and AIBA World Championships gold medalists, 7-0 Flyweight (52 kg) Yosbany Veitia has been an exceptional performer this season, with each of his performances better than the last.

His teammate Lazaro Alvarez also became the top ranked Lightweight (60 kg) in the Regular Season, as he achieved an identical 7-0 perfect record.

Also impressive in the group stages was Bantamweight (56 kg) Andy Cruz Gomez, who  stepped into the talented shoes of Olympic gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez to win five consecutive matches in the competition.

Ahead of their important semi-final battle with Mexico Guerreros, Cuba will be relying on their experienced boxers to lead them victory, which includes 7-0 Heavyweight (91 kg) sensation Erislandy Savon, and 6-0 Light welterweight (64 kg) Yasniel Toledo.

If Cuba Domadores become the first Franchise to earn back-to-back WSB Championships, it will be hard to pick against them achieving a third title next season.
