The golds of the youngster Joahnys Argilagos (48 kg) and of Julio Cesar la Cruz (81) joined to the bronze of Yasniel Toledo (64) to complete an unattainable metal trio for the nations in competition.

Fortunately, not only the Camagüeyans contributed gems to the national cause, since Arlen López (Guantanamo) and Lázaro Álvarez (Pinar del Rio, 60 kg) also bathed of gold, and Yosvani Veitía (52) and Erislandy Savón (91) stayed in silver.

Argilagos performance was the best of Qatar. The boy, with only 18 years, was so sure on the ring that had time even to dance a "wachineo" and to accommodate his showy hairstyle in full combat. At the habitual speed of legs and the sharp beating, “the pepillo” incorporated a solid defense and a more serious tactical planning, which reach its highest point in the final fight against the Russian Vasilii Egorov.

That thing about “the shade” La Cruz was not rare. Again the most extravagant of our boxers wasted mastery in the art of sticking without anyone touching him, and covered without complications the route towards his third world crown. Only a scrape on the eyebrow in the last round of the combat for the gold before the Irish Joseph Ward put the suspense to the history. With this title La Cruz is reaffirmed like the best boxer of the world in 2015, title granted by the AIBA in its annual gala.

The propulsion of the Camagüeyans fighters was crucial so that Cuba was reconquering the first place for countries that was lost in the last decade. Qatar 2015 put “the universal order” in its place, the westernmost island of the Caribbean is reaffirmed like the big potency of the amateur boxing and Camagüey helped with its best children.
