Leo Santa Cruz Says Move To 126 Coming Soon

By Edward Chaykovsky

WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz is very familiar with his upcoming opponent Manuel Roman. Santa Cruz (27-0-1, 15 KOs) will defend his title against Roman (17-2, 6 KOs) on the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Marcos Maidana Showtime Pay-Per-View on September 13th from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Roman is Santa Cruz's former sparring partner. The two are good friends, but won't be when they step in the ring.

"We used to spar a lot and he has good technique, but not a lot of people know him. He's a good friend, but this is business. Once we're up there we have go out there and give it our best," Santa Cruz said.

This could be his last appearance at super bantamweight. Santa Cruz is planning to have two more fights, at most, at 122, and then he plans to move up to featherweight. 

"Maybe I'll do one or two more fights at 122, then go up to 126," Santa Cruz said.

He should just move up already I think he's just wasting his time at 122.

LSC is ducking. He just said he is not afraid but his team is afraid of Rigo, and now he will move up. Leo shouldn;t be afraid. GB can buy a judge like he did with Canelo.

[QUOTE=Jalisciense909;14868826]With Abner Mares signing with Al Haymon the other day it's pretty obvious that the goal is for Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares to fight. If Santa Cruz doesn't fight Rigondeaux before he moves up to 126 I sure…
