Cool event here. 
The Cuban amateurs squad is taking on a bunch of Mexican professionals, some decent, 1 former World Champion.
But these Cubans are all Olympic medalists, some multiple and top 5 ranked in the world.

Prediction Comments

Predictions: 4 of 5 Winners, 2 Perfect, 250 Points   |   Tied for 3rd with 2 others

Vazquez vs. Cruz
Andy Cruz, DEC
Andy Cruz has a great amateur career behind him, he could go on to great things in the professional ranks.

Iglesias vs. Borrego
Roniel Iglesias, DEC
Again, picking the one who's won tons of medals in amateur competitions.

Veitia vs. Dominguez
Yosbany Veitia, DEC
Same reasoning again for this fight though Yosbany Veitia's Wikipedia page could do with a bit of work!

Riojas vs. Lopez
Arlen Lopez, DEC
"If in doubt, pick the Cuban" seems to be a recurring theme here.

Fernandez vs. La Cruz
Julio Cesar La Cruz, TKO, R2
Julio Cesar La Cruz has the same issue with his Wikipedia page as well.

Fixed those links. 
For some reason when I copy a Wikipedia link, sometimes it changes when I save it? It adds a bunch of characters to the link? I don't know why but It's a pain in the arse!

I’m just guessing this is a showcase card for Cuban Olympic boxers

Thanks for fixing them @Mikey1903! It's good to have a bit more background info on them. Plus, you get the pleasure of knowing that somewhere there is a nerd who just keeps clicking the "random page" button on Wikipedia (turns out there's quite a lot of people who do that and read the page it lands on to build up their general knowledge) and ends up on one of their pages and now knows just a bit about someone they probably wouldn't have heard of and maybe even become fans!

No worries mate.
I try and add as much info as possible. Like I already told you I'd like to have Tapology as a 1 stop for all your info. 

Another thing, you probably noticed, I have stopped adding BoxRec links for debuting fighters. Couple of reasons, I was ****** sick of seeing *this person doesn't exist "!!!  Sometimes BoxRec create a new profile for debut guys, especially if they are booked but don't end up fighting.
Another thing is it they have an amateur record Tapology will take that and show it as their fight record.  I'm not going to write a massive message explaining how the boxer records appear but it's linked to the BoxRec.
So I have to make sure that is all correct. 
Anyway, I now wait until the boxer actually completes their 1st fight until adding the link.
Just incase you were wondering

@Mikey1903

I just assumed they didn't have a BoxRec page but that makes sense!

No, I have been doing this for the last few weeks. 
It saves records getting messed up. I have to try keep on top of them, along with other things I am becoming a decent plate spinner!!!

@Mikey1903

You should really ask @Gregory to pay you full time for the work you do on here! I honestly don't know how you find the time to do all the event updating, record keeping ect while still having any form of social or personal life! I don't envy your workload but I sure do appreciate it!
