Two years ago, Deputy Chairman of the NOC, First Deputy Head of the Boxing Federation of Uzbekistan Saken Polatov met with President of the Boxing Federation of Cuba Albert Puig and discussed issues regarding bilateral cooperation. According to the agreement, in November 2019, representatives of the Uzbekistan boxing team held training camps in Cuba. Now, the Cuban team has arrived in Tashkent to hold training camps in our country.
Currently, our team is training at the Yangiabad base in the Tashkent region. Today, Cubans and boxers will join them together to prepare for the upcoming World Championship in Belgrade (Serbia). It should be noted that the Cuban national team has three Olympic champions.
The joint training camp lasts until October 22 and on the same day both teams leave for Serbia.
