Unbeaten Luis "El Artesano" Cruz, who in all likelihood will take on Juan Carlos Burgos (27-1, 19 KOs) on November 12 for NABO title at 130 pounds, said he expects to fight for a major world title in early 2012. Cruz, 19-0 and 15 knockouts, will be making his second ring outing for Top Rank. Cruz-Burgos is positioned for the pay-per-view undercard which supports the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy.

"With God's favor, we will be opening the pay-per-view of [Pacquiao-Marquez] and we are going to train for eight weeks for that fight. We are already working in the gym and we are close to a title shot in 2012. Maybe in the first fight of 2012, it can be in Puerto Rico, for either the IBF and WBO titles. Both sanctioned bodies have expressed interest that I fight for their titles," Cruz said.

If he wants to fight for the WBO title, he'll most likely have to face Broner and it will be in the US, as Broner has a good promoter in Golden Boy that will do whatever they can to keep the fight in the states. If Cruz wants to fight for the IBF title, then he'll have to...

cruz is the next big thing similar to cotto in style and the way he handles himself he will be champ and will beat any1 in the division he was brought up at a good pace

comment by Ringlife, on 09-20-2011
I like the way Luis Cruz fights he reminds me of Cotto he's got pretty good defense doesn't get hit a lot has good boxing skills power in both hands a little bit quiet but people like him. So thats a good thing I don't know nothing about this guy that he's fighting but he has a pretty good recor...
