Luis Cruz To Face Davis on Gamboa-De Leon Card

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Super featherweight Luis "El Artesano" Cruz (18-0, 14 KOs) is ready for the next step in his career, with an eye on a world title shot in the near future. Cruz will return on September 10 in Atlantic City, facing veteran Antonio Davis (28-6, 13 KOs). In the main event, which HBO will televise, featherweight Yuriorkis Gamboa will take on Daniel Ponce De Leon. Davis has not fought since April, when he won a unanimous decision over Martin Honorio.

"I liked the idea [of being on the card], because the venue is recognized and, moreover, we are closer to the Puerto Rican public living in New Jersey. We're taking it step by step, looking for fights that will lead us to a world championship and this is another opportunity," said Cruz to Carlos Gonzalez.

Cruz predicts a good, experience building fight with Davis.

"Davis is an opponent who is always coming forward throwing punches, similar to a typical Mexican fighter that always tries to exchange. Among some of [past] opponents are fighters who later became world champions like Steve Luevano, Joan Guzman, Humberto Soto and others, and his record shows that he has fought some good fighters," said Cruz. "I'll come prepared as usual."
