I watched a couple amateur fights (he never turned pro) of Cuban Enrique Carrion. Interesting is that Casamayor replaced him at the Olympics because he injured himself.

8-time Cuban champion, 1 gold 2 silver at the WC's.

Look. at. the. skills!

He's good at bouncing around on his toes, I'll give him that.

Yeah? That's about all I noticed, apart from the size and age difference between he and his opponent.
Bummer for you man that that's all you noticed. If only you knew. Pure boxing does not get any better than that. What you see there is the cream of the crop Cuban boxing has produced. No true boxing fan would not love it and feast their eyes on it..

You're just blinded by butt-hurt. Or you DKSAB.

Was he older with more experience? Yes.
Is someone with more experience necessarily better? Of course not.
Does the age difference makes him less skillful? Hell no.
He was just infinitely more talented. A 5-year younger version would've beat him just as handily.

Good luck sourpuss. :hi:

Why would I be butt-hurt? I watched expecting to be impressed by a fighter I've never heard of and pretty much immediately realized why I'd never heard of him. I just saw a guy dancing around rather crudely and pot shotting against a smaller, far less experienced opponent.

That's about as rudimentary as "pure boxing" gets. Shows what you know about technique if you're impressed by that. There were probably hundreds of better Cuban amateurs.
