Perhaps the most polished southpaw fighter in the world, Yasnier Toledo topped the Light welterweight (64 kg) rankings in the Regular Season of WSB, and earned himself a Rio 2016 Olympic Games quota in the process. Toledo’s remarkable 6-0 record in the group stages was especially impressive as four of his matches took place in away matches.
The calibre of opponents that Toledo has defeated this season includes Mexico’s second ranked Raúl Curiel García, while the Cuban also beat Roberto Sariñana in the semi-finals. Already well known for his impenetrable defence and fast hands, Toledo has taken his skills to a completely new level in Season V, which has attracted acclaim from fans across the globe.
Toledo lost in the Finals of Season IV, and though Cuba Domadores eventually emerged victorious over Azerbaijan Baku Fires, he will be keen to dazzle against Astana Arlans Kazakhstan in the Finals of this campaign.
With two-time AIBA World Championships silver medals, a London 2012 Olympic Games bronze, plus gold medals from the 2011 Pan American Games and the 2014 Central American and Caribbean Games, Toledo is fully formed as a world class fighter, and is ready to share his talents on the grandest stage of all.
