Mexico's Cristobal Cruz (39-12-3, 23KOs), the former world champion featherweight champion of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), has started camp for his scheduled fight against super featherweight Juan Carlos Burgos (28-1, 19KOs). The fight takes place on February 24th at the Galen Center in Los Angeles, California.

Cruz won the world featherweight championship by defeating Orlando Salido in 2008. He then made made ​​four defenses, until he was dethroned in May 2010 by Salido. After that defeat, he returned on August 5, 2011 and had a four round technical draw with unbeaten Armenian puncher Art Hovhannisyan in Santa Ynez, California.

So far, Burgos has only lost a single fight, against Hozumi Hasegawa, and after that loss he beat Frankie Archuleta, Gilberto Sanchez Leon and the previously undefeated Luis Cruz.

Cruz plans to train very hard and knows that a victory over Burgos could lead to a world title opportunity.

Burgos is a helluva fighter I would love to see him face Uchiyama or the Bronze/Perez winner if he can get though Cruz.
