Cuba Domadores cruise to eighth successive win against Morocco Atlas Lions

Another week, another victory for Cuba Domadores who have now won all eight of their World Series of Boxing (WSB) matches this season after defeating Morocco Atlas Lions 4-1 in Casablanca.

Although the Moroccan Franchise lost their first home match of the campaign, they pushed the Cubans hard and will take confidence from a spirited display.

The night almost began with a major upset as 4-0 number one ranked Flyweight (52 kg) Yosbany Veitia earned a split decision win over 2-2 Morocco’s Achraf Kharroubi.

Cuban Lightweight (60 kg) Lazaro Alvarez also enjoyed his fourth win of the season with a routine victory against Abdellah Boudrar.

Number two ranked Welterweight (69 kg) Mohammed Rabii enjoyed the biggest win of his career so far after taking his WSB record to 4-0 with an outstanding points win over Olympic gold medalist Roniel Iglesias Sotolongo.

Domadore Julio Cesar De La Cruz has dominated the Light heavyweight (81 kg) division this season, and maintained his undefeated start to the campaign by dropping just one round against Peter Mullenberg.

At Super heavyweight (91+ kg), Cuban Lenier Eunice Pero returned to winning ways with a crushing points win over a disappointing Thierry Adolphe Ngueharoum.

Morocco Atlas Lions host Mexico Guerreros next week, while Cuba Domadores welcome Algeria Desert Hawks to Havana.
