Professional Boxing Returning To Cuba After 50-Year Ban
It’s easy to see how the professional world of boxing – with promoters and big pay days – wouldn’t really mesh with communism.
Once the 1959 revolution came, the communist regime deemed pro boxing corrupt and exploitative, and the big purses not in line with socialist egalitarian ideals.
Now the island is on verge of relaxing the monopoly of amateur boxing by joining a semi-pro league in which athletes are paid by sponsors and fight pro-style bouts, but still retain the Olympic eligibility that's all-important to Cuban sports authorities. Boxers also would fight without the headgear they have grown accustomed to.
