Castro eases up Cuban defectors: no jail time for run away boxers

Monday, August 6, 2007

In news from Cuba, recuperating Comandante Fidel Castro has pledged not to jail two star boxers who were deported back to Cuba after abandoning their team during the Pan-American Games. Guillermo Rigondeaux, two-time bantamweight Olympic champion, and welterweight world champion Erislandy Lara were arrested by Brazilian authorities and sent back to Cuba after they were discovered in small town near Rio De Janeiro.The fighters claimed that they were kidnapped, drugged and duped by individuals working for a German boxing promoter Arena. An Arena representative has since denied the allegations and stated that the fighters had signed contracts and then changed their minds out of fear for their families in Cuba. Meanwhile, Castro has said that the two boxers would be offered employment back in Cuba in line with their boxing skills. He did not, however, mention any possibility of them fighting in the ring, ever again.
