Leo Santa Cruz-Victor Terrazas: Golden Boy Wins Bid

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised that Golden Boy Promotions won the WBC's purse bid for the mandatory fight between WBC super bantamweight champion Victor Terrazas (37-2-1, 21KOs) and mandatory challenger Leo Santa Cruz (24-0-1, 14KOs). Golden Boy bid $526,000, while Zanfer Promotions put down $451,000.

The belt became vacant when Abner Mares moved up to the featherweight division. Terrazas captured the title last month with a close twelve round split decision over Cristian Mijares.

Golden Boy was represented at today's purse bid by Ramiro "Dinero" Gonzalez, who now holds a 4-0 record in purse bids. Gonzalez credits his fast climb in the purse bid pound-for-pound ranks to "hard work, dedication and math skills." Before he participates, Gonzalez holds his lucky charm and lights a Catholic candle. He whispers a few prayers and then enters the purse bid to clean house.
