Luis Cruz, Abner Cotto Scheduled For Returns on April 21

By Rey Colon

Super featherweight Luis 'The Craftsman' Cruz (19-1, 15 KOs) and lightweight Abner Cotto (13-0, 5 KOs) are scheduled to return to action in separate events on April 21, and their commitments will be broadcast on Azteca America and Telefutura respectively.

Cruz will be part of a function to be presented by Top Rank. Cruz is also co-promoted by Miguel Cotto Promotions. In his first fight for Top Rank, he had a bad night and lost his unbeaten record to Mexico's Juan Carlos Burgos by majority decision.

Cotto, who returns from decision wins over Colombian Hevinson Herrera and Fernando Torroes, will headline a show being staged in the city of Caguas.
