Cuban Olympians Finally in Miami!

By Karl Freitag

The three Cuban Olympic gold medalists who defected late last year from their national team in Venezuela, have finally arrived in the United States after at first being denied entry to the country. Heavyweight Odlanier SolĂ­s, light flyweight Yan BartelemĂ­ and flyweight Yuriorquis Gamboa Toledano will make their pro debuts in Miami on a card promoted by Tuto Zabala Jr.'s All Star Boxing, then head to Hamburg, Germany, where they will establish their careers under the Arena Box-Promotion banner.
