Now I'll focus my concentration for the Pre-Olympics which will be held in Manchester, England, on September."

Moontasri, who is only 19, said he was happy to have the chance competing at the Pan American Games: "I'm only 19 and I thought it was excellent to compete against the Cubans, since they have the best technique. I'm very happy to fight in Brazil."
