By Ryan Burton

Former bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (24-0-1) is just days away from facing WBC junior featherweight champion Victor Terrazas (37-2-1). Santa Cruz feels blessed to be in the position that he is in and on a recent edition of BoxingScene Radio, said that winning a second world title would be a dream come true.
"To be a two-division champion at such a young age is a dream come true. Terrazas is a good fighter who came up the hard way. He likes to come right at you so it should be a good fight," stated the 25-year-old Santa Cruz.

We also asked Santa Cruz about potentially facing WBA/WBO super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux in the future. Rigondeaux is regarded as the best fighter in the division but Santa Cruz isn't too excited by the Cuban's defensive style. 
"He's a good fighter but his style really isn't too interesting. He runs and holds but he won't bang with you. I'm not sure how exciting it would be," Santa Cruz told BoxingScene Radio.

With that being said, Santa Cruz said that he was confident he could dethrone the two time Olympic gold medal winner. I compared the potential matchup to an elite pitcher facing a top hitter in baseball.

"That's true. I just think with the amount of punches I throw and the pressure I
put on him, that I would break him down late," said Santa Cruz.

Rigondeaux would school Santa Cruz.

I like Leo and think he's an exciting fighter but talk is cheap. I actually enjoyed Rigo's fight with Donaire and I didn't find it boring at all, and I know I'm not the only one who enjoyed the fight. I believe that saying that "Rigo's fights aren't entertaining" is the same as saying "I don't b...
