HAVANA - Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro predicted on Sunday that his leftist ally Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez would win his battle against cancer, for which he is being treated in a Cuban hospital.

Castro, in one of his written "reflections" posted on a Cuban government website, said Chavez, 56, had had "impressive" results from treatment for the cancer that was diagnosed after Cuban doctors removed what was called a "pelvic abscess" from the Venezuelan leader three weeks ago.
