THE Pan American Games concluded at the Coliseo Miguel Grau in Lima, Peru on Friday (August 2).
The Cubans dominated the men’s event, with virtually an all star team winning eight gold medals, as well as a silver and a bronze to complete their haul.
Their squad was led by victorious Olympic and World champions. Light-heavyweight Julio La Cruz, almost a perennial World champion at this point as well as being the 2016 Olympic gold medallist, won gold in Lima. On Thursday (August 1) he unanimously outpointed Brazil’s Keno Machado in their final without dropping a round.
