The best boxer ever, to my mind, was a Cuban Olympian,Teofilio Stevenson . I have no doubt that they continue that tradition to his day.

Great image.

Excellent portrait with that textured wall which can only be Cuba! Love the seat on the left too. It's another wonderful image from you Si!

This photo is simply perfect in so many ways...colour, tone, light, pose of subject, the texture of the environment, it is such a rich image.........I'm very curious about the Dasani water bottle in his hands....that water company belongs to either Pepsi or the Coca Cola company...so that is clearly allowed in Cuba? - Jonathan

Hi Jonathan , think the relations between Cuba and US are less strained now with Obama in the white house.
