The World Championship of Boxing, convened from October 5 to 18 in the capital of Qatar, will bring together 260 contestants; including 50 emerged from the qualifying tournament of the American continent.
The competition for this region will take place from May 15 to 22 in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela, and will grant five tickets for each of the 10 divisions, ratified the international association.
The entity will also grant another 90 berths to Europe, 66 to Asia, 30 to Africa, 18 to Oceania and six to a system of “wild card” seeking to ensure the level of the contest that will be qualifier for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro’16.
Cuba aims to guarantee its presence in all categories and conquer a title they do not win since Mianyag’05.
