Cruz vows to stun Davis in Los Angeles

Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz insists beating Gervonta Davis is not mission impossible ahead of their lightweight collision tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

WBA Regular lightweight title holder Davis was initially scheduled to face Rolando Romero, who was pulled from their December 5 date due to an ongoing police investigation into a sexual assault claim against Romero.

Mexico’s Cruz stepped in to take on Davis, and says his sheer will to change his life will give the Baltimore star a hard night’s work this evening.

WBA Regular lightweight title holder Davis was initially scheduled to face Rolando Romero, who was pulled from their December 5 date due to an ongoing police investigation into a sexual assault claim against Romero.

“I’m hungrier and I’m more motivated than ever to give a great future to my wife and my son. This is my dream since I was a little kid and I am here to make that dream come true. I am going to give my all to make it happen. 

“My training camp has been all about endurance and I’m fully prepared to give a great show for the fans and everybody tuning in on Sunday night. 

“It’s simple. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. He has never faced anybody that fights like me before. My hunger and my will to win is unparalleled. He’s going to feel it on Sunday night. 

“I guarantee a great fight. I guarantee excitement. I want the fans to be excited whether they tune in on SHOWTIME PPV or are at STAPLES Center. I want them to go home happy. 

“I’m very confident in any punch that I throw. Like the Mexican saying goes, ‘whichever way it goes, it goes.’ But I’m very comfortable in my own skin and in my own style. I believe in what I can do on Sunday night. 

“Gervonta is a very strong fighter. I consider him the best in the division, but he’s human and he’s not impossible to beat. My goal will be to bring him down a notch and show who I am as well.”
