Photos: Luis Cruz is Training Hard For Gamboa Card

The WBO Latino Jr. Lightweight and undefeated Luis "El Artesano" Cruz stated today that he is physically fit, just days before his showdown against Antonio Davis. The fight will be the co-main event for the clash between Yuriorkis Gamboa and Daniel Ponce de León, this coming Saturday, September 10th, at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ. 

"I am in excellent physical condition for this next fight.  I prepare very well for all of my fights, but since I was crowned Latino champion, each engagement is more challenging and more difficult.  So we have worked hard for this one", Cruz stated after finishing a workout for the media in the Caimito Gym in San Juan. 

Cruz (18-0, 14 KOs) is focused on securing a convincing victory over Davis (28-6, 13 KOs), an experienced and seasoned fighter, a native of Atlanta, Georgia. 

 "I want to make a good impression in my victory this coming Saturday in Atlantic City. From now on every fight means a lot and I will be in the center of many eyes.  I will be crowned world champion.  I will beat Davis convincingly.  I have trained with my trainer Freddy Trinidad and we have a good strategy," predicted Cruz. 

On his experience fighting at 130 pounds, Cruz emphasized once more that he feels stronger. 

"I can tell you that I feel stronger and faster at 130 pounds.  I make my meals normally but with smaller portions", stated Cruz, who began his career at 126 pounds.  Cruz finally talked about his future after this fight.

"The first step now is to beat Davis strongly. We should be back in the ring on November 12 on Pacquiao-Marquez 3, which is good for me because I will be seen on a mega fight card with a great opportunity for the fans to see me in action.  I am a few steps away from being crowned world champion and I want to thank my promoters Miguel Cotto Promotions and Top Rank," he concluded. 

"El Artesano" will leave for Atlantic City with his team this coming Wednesday, September 7th on a U.S. Airways flight at 8:45 am.
