Leinier Pero took up boxing in 2004, but it wasn’t until 2010 that the then 17 year-old won his first World title at the AIBA Youth Championships. Gold as part of Cuba’s phenomenally successful 2011 Pan-American Games team followed, and Pero joined the WSB side as super heavyweight in 2015. With a 10-3 record in the competition  and unbeaten in Season VI , Pero will be looking to end with a flourish in Tashkent.
