Tamaño letra:

HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 22 (acn) Christian Pinder (81 kg) will be in charge today of Cuba´s debut in the AIBA Youth Women´s Men´s World Championships which started yesterday in Budapest, capital of Hungary.

Pinder will face Azeri Zaur Musaev in one of the six bouts scheduled for his division, which will enroll 22 of the 218 contestants gathered in that European city.

Middleweight Edel Acosta will debut on Thursday against Spanish Pablo Coy, while on Friday; light-welterweight Idalberto Umara will have as opponent the local Daniel Dayi.

The competition will run until August 31st and Cuban could only register those three boxers due to the impossibility of getting visas in Havana to attend the Pan-American tournament, held in the United States, which granted tickets to this major event.

Faced with this reality, the only alternative was to wait for the berths assigned by the organizers, who defined the divisions to be covered.
