Default Re: Andres Aldama 'The Cuban Assassin'

Flea Man,

When he hit you,,,,,,,you went to sleep.

Actually, in 1975 and early-1976 - Andres Aldama was campaigning at (67 Kg)
Welterweight Division. At 6' 0", his frame could handle the extra 7 lbs. at 19 years-old.

He lost in 'semi-finals' at the (January 1976) 1976 Cuban National Tournament of the (67 Kg) division.

The Cuban Boxing Team dropped him down 7 lbs., to the Light-Welterweight Divsion, and he impressed
by winning the April 1976 Minsk Tournament in Moscow.

In June 1976, he then won the Cuban '1976' Olympic Box-Offs, by defeating the #1 Cuban Light-Welterweight -
Duque Stable 'twice' - and the #2 Cuban Light-Welterweight - Victor Corona 'twice'.

Andres Aldama was so impressive, that he was the #1 Ranked (63.5 Kg) Light-Welterweight at
the 1976 Summer Olympics, above #2 Ranked - Ray Leonard.
