Cuba vs Ireland: In the ring

Nicolas Cruz Hernandez, the man who trained Wayne McCullough at the 1992 Olympic Games, talks about the similarities and differences between boxing in his Cuban homeland and his adopted country of Ireland.

Unsurprisingly, he suspects that many of the differences are down to the superior rhythmn of the Cubans, but he also has the good grace to blame that on the weather.

But what the Irish may lack in rhythmn, they more than make up for in fighting spirit. None more so than Wayne McCullough, the 'Pocket Rocket', who Cruz pays glowing tribute to.
