Orlando Cruz Eyes World Title Shot in Coming Months

By Miguel Rivera

Puerto Rican featherweight contender Orlando Cruz (20-2-1, 10KOs) was hoping to get a shot at WBO featherweight champion Mikey Garcia. Instead, Cruz's countryman Juan Manuel "Juanma" Lopez secured the opportunity, taking place on June 15th in Dallas, Texas.

Cruz hopes to get the winner of the Juanma vs. Garcia encounter, or anothre world champion by the end of the year.

"My time will come. I'm not in a hurry. I'm waiting to see what happens. But I'm sure that in 2013 I will become a world champion," said a confident Cruz to Elket Rodriguez Birriel.
