Leo Santa Cruz Eyes Mares, Winning Titles Until 140

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (25-0-1, 15KOs) was in Mexico where the World Boxing Council presented him with his brand new championship belt. Santa Cruz captured the title last month with a third round stoppage of Victor Terrazas in Carson, California. On the same card, Abner Mares was knocked out in the first round by Jhonny Gonzalez. Mares will rematch Gonzalez likely in December. Santa Cruz hopes to face Mares in the near future. Although Santa Cruz just became a two-division champion, he hopes to win titles at 126, 130, 135 and 140.

"With Mares, it is an interesting fight. I think it is going to happen, but I'd like to make a couple of defenses and then go for the featherweight title, super featherweight, lightweight and super lightweight," Santa Cruz said.

Mares just got knocked out, a lot of people are eyeing him suddenly. I would rather see Cruz fight Rigo.
