To Foguear the Honduran boxers, five members of the Nicaraguan “B” team spent five days in Tegucigalpa, carrying out fights that would allow them to arrive with the best preparation for the elimination contest.
For five days the boxers from the neighboring country were the rivals of the catrachos. The delegation is made up of Bayron Molina at 49 kilos, Jesús Salazar (60), Teófilo Amaya (64) and Ángela Miranda (60), Yobanni Hernández travels as coach and Dhany Alexander Reyes delegate.

The Nicaraguan delegation was made up of coach Luis Videa and athletes Irene Aguirre, Claudia Parrale, Reiniery Gutiérrez, Yader Hernández and Exequiel Martínez.
Videa said that during the days of stay in the country, he was able to observe that the catrachos athletes had a good improvement, since in the first sparring sessions he did not see the necessary level, but halfway through the training the change was noticed.
