I dont think thats true, Balado, savon, ariel hernandez, juan carlos lemus, hector vinent, maikro romero, kindelan, jorg gutierrez, are all olympic gold medalists several of which are multiple gold medal winners from the last 20 years who never went pro, plus there are loads of silver and bronze medal winners and world amateur championship winners that never went pro.
The vast majority of cuban pros arent actually the top amateurs, although this is starting to change with solis gamboa and bartelemi going pro
