Pinales, visited the prestigious program with his partner Alexy De La Cruz, champion in the 63.5 kilos category of the San Salvador Games and both assured that the boxers should receive care that is consistent with their results.

“I see little attention paid to boxers, they don’t give us the attention we deserve. Here they only care about the medals, but they don’t get close to the athletes,” said Pinales, who qualified for the 2023 Pan American Games in Chile after his gold medal in San Salvador.

For his part, Alexy De La Cruz, the oldest boxer in the national team who earns 25,000 pesos a month from PARNI, confessed that sometimes he has to borrow to meet his family responsibilities, as the father of 2 children and that he has often wondered if all the effort he has made representing the country is worth it.
