Cuba’s Andy Cruz opens with victory in Olympic boxing contest

Cuba’s Andy Cruz opens with victory in Olympic boxing contest

Tokyo, Jul 31 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Andy Cruz beat Luke McCormack, from the United Kingdom, 5-0, and advanced to the boxing quarterfinals in the 63- kilogram division at the 32nd Olympic Games.

Cruz, two-time world champion, dominated the three rounds with accurate combinations that lacerated the anatomy of his opponent, who was unable to crack the Cuban defense.

With Cruz’s victory, the Cuban team reaches 10 consecutive wins in the summer event after a little earlier his compatriot Yosbany Veitía beat Ghanaian boxer Tetteh Sulemanu 5-0.

In their participation in Olympic Games, the Cuban boxers have 37 titles, 19 subtitles and 17 bronze medals, with two three-time Olympic champions, Teófilo Stevenson and Félix Savón.
