Cuban supremacy was confirmed as the nation secured four further gold medals on the final night of boxing competition at the Pan American Games here.
Boxers from the nation had earned four titles in yesterday’s men’s finals at the Miguel Grau Coliseum venue and their team-mates matched it today.
Reigning Olympic champion Arlen Lopez led the medal charge as the 26-year-old retained the men’s 75 kilograms middleweight title he earned four years ago in Toronto.
Lopez was awarded a unanimous points victory over his Brazilian rival Herbert Carvalho to take the title.
Beaten semi-finalists Nicaragua’s Lesther Espino and United States’ Troy Isley received bronze medals.
Lopez was one of three Cubans on the night to defend Toronto 2015 crowns, with 2017 world champion Andy Cruz winning the men’s 64kg light welterweight event for the second time.
He secured a 4-1 split decision win against America's Keyshawn Davis, with Alston Ryan from Antigua and Barbuda and Michael Alexander from Trinidad and Tobago completing the podium.
Osvel Caballero García delivered an impressive display in the men’s 56kg bantamweight final, earning a unanimous points win over America's Duke Ragan.
Each of the judges scored the contest 30-27 in the Cuban’s favour.
Erislandy Savón rubber stamped Cuba’s dominance by winning the men's 91kg heavyweight title.
The Olympic bronze medallist and reigning world champion repeated his victory from Toronto 2015, securing a 4-1 split decision win over Ecuador's Julio Castillo.
Bronze medals went to Abner Teixeira of Brazil and Peru's José Lucar.
Puerto Rico's Oscar Collazo was the only non-Cuban fighter to win a men’s event today, earning a 4-1 points verdict in his 49kg light flyweight contest with Colombia’s Yuberjen Martinez.
While Cuba scooped eight of the 10 men’s titles, they were absent from the women’s event.
Olympic and Toronto 2015 bronze medallist Ingrit Valencia of Colombia claimed the first women’s title of the evening.
The 30-year-old won via a 4-1 split decision verdict against America's Virginia Fuchs in the women’s 51kg flyweight event.
Venezuela’s Irismar Cardozo and Dominican Republic’s Miguelina Hernandez secured bronze medals.
Valencia’s team-mate Jessica Caicedo topped the standings in the middleweight competition following a close final against the United States’ Naomi Graham.
Four judges awarded the Colombian the fight 29-28, while the other judge gave Graham the decision by the same score.
Canada’s Tammara Thibeault and Brazil’s Flavia Figueiredo completed the podium.
There was a clear victory for Brazil’s Beatriz Soares in the women’s 60kg lightweight final as she eased to a unanimous points victory over Argentina’s Dayana Sanchez.

She achieved a score of 55 hits to clinch victory, with Chile's Francisca Crovetto and Rhode's team-mate Dania Vizzi completing the podium places with 47 and 40.
