Cuban Heavyweight Yazmany Consuegra Invades U.S Soil
By Brad Marchetti, Doghouse Boxing (April 2, 2010)   
Cuba’s rich boxing tradition is about to make an impact on the heavyweight division in American heavyweight boxing. Kris Lawrence’s Heavyweight factory has a deadly Cuban defector discovered by talented director of boxing Henry Rivalta that is ready to rumble. Their really is no substitute for experience in boxing and Cuban heavyweight Yasmany Consuegra has plenty of rope burns. Below is a glance at the mean 4-round undercard fighter that is already a 10-round stud ready to pounce on the opposition.

Yasmany Consuegra is a shaven skulled assassin that has a reputation for separating men from their working brain cells. The 6’2” 220 Lb. puncher compiled a 249-29 mark in the rugged Cuban amateur ranks and was the Juvenile world champion. In his pro debut the 26-year old made short work of 278 Lb. Florida Golden Gloves champion Curtis Harper via 1st round KO. I saw the fight live at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL and I must say that Yasmany has anvil fists. Consuegra was like a cold-blooded cobra against Harper. Once Consuegra saw an opening he threw laser accurate grenades that hit the bull’s-eye. Once Consuegra had his man hurt, he showed a high killer instinct that displayed his thirst for blood.

Harper was a formidable foe, but Consuegra has also busted up a well known top-30 contender in sparring sessions. Consuegra can punch with both hands and his textbook defense is also impressive. Yasmany is trained by superstar Cuban boxing trainer El Moro Fernandez who showed Yuriorkis Gamboa, Yudel Johnson and Guillermo Rigondeaux a few tricks or two on their way up the ranks. Fernandez says that Yasmany is similar in style to Evander Holyfield, with his subtle defense, warrior mentality and two-fisted offensive explosions. Only time will tell how far the deadly punching Yasmany Consuegra will go, but someday even middle America will be able to recognize this defectors unusual name quite easily.
