‘Pitbull’ Cruz ready to move up in weight for Prograis fight


Mexican “Pitbull” Isaac Cruz (24-2-1, 17 KOs) from lightweight (up to 61.2 kg) is ready to fill the empty vacancy of a contender for the WBC world champion in the super lightweight category (up to 63.5 kg) American Regis Prograis (28-1, 24 KOs). About it in an interview
Izquierdado said the father and trainer of the Mexican boxer Isaac Cruz Sr.

“If we are talking about a fight for the world title, we will consider this option. But only if it is a real fight for the world title. We are not interested in lifting 63.5 kg in any other way, except for a title fight, ”says Cruz-father.

Recall that earlier the former world champion Jose Ramirez refused to fight with Prograis, who was not satisfied with the proposed 35% of the prize fund. Now Regis is looking forward to a fight against Teofimo Lopez, but even with this option, not everything is clear yet.

Meanwhile, Papa Cruz also talks about money:

“We need them to put honest money on the table. We won’t accept a fight just because a world title is on the line, we need the reward to be appropriate. 60 to 40. And if it’s completely garlic, then even 45% for Pitbull, because now it is he who is a magnet for the public and will fill any arena where he fights. People want to see Pitbull in action, he sells tickets. If there is such a possibility, why not discuss it?

Recently, Stevenson called Cruz a “puppy” and said who else would not mind fighting.
