Cuba is breaking a five-decade ban on professional boxing by joining an international semi-pro league where fighters compete for sponsored teams, earn $1,000 to $3,000 a month and don't wear protective headgear, officials said Friday. Cuba will begin participating in the WSB in November. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes, File)
