Ronald Cruz-Prenice Brewer Added To NBC Sports Card

Bethlehem, PA—World-rated welterweight Ronald Cruz fights for the second time in his backyard when he collides with Prenice Brewer, of Cleveland, OH, in a scheduled 12-round contest on Friday evening, June 1, on the inaugural boxing show in the new 1,800-seat Events Center at the Sands Resort Casino Bethlehem.

The seven-fight card, which will be televised live as part of the NBC Sports Network Fight Night series, also features King Gabriel Rosado, of Philadelphia, PA, against Joel Julio, of Monteria, Colombia, in a 10-round junior middleweight contest between top contenders.

At stake in the Cruz-Brewer match is the vacant  WBC Continental Americas title.        

Ranked No. 14 in the world at 147 pounds by the IBF, Cruz (right) is 16-0, 12 K0s.  In his last fight Feb. 25 in Atlantic City, NJ, he earned a hard-fought, but unanimous 10-round decision over dangerous Allen Conyers, of the Bronx, NY.  The fight with Conyers marked Cruz’ first main event in Atlantic City, NJ.

Cruz also has defeated Jeremy Bryan, of Paterson, NJ; Chris Fernandez, of Salt Lake City, UT; Anges Adjaho, of Buffalo, NY.

He was able to accomplish this after a 28-fight amateur career which he jammed into less than 18 months.

The June 1 match with Brewer will be Cruz’ second in his backyard.  Last summer he headlined a card in a temporary tent at the Sands Casino Resort and he K0d cross-state rival Doel Carrasquillo , of Lancaster, PA, in five rounds.

Brewer, 24, earned this opportunity when he scored an upset victory over highly touted and previously unbeaten southpaw Emmanuel Taylor last Nov. 10 in Taylor’s backyard of Washington, DC.

The eight-round split decision over Taylor improved Brewer’s five-year pro record to 16-1-1, 7 K0s.

Brewer defeated Chris Fernandez via six-round decision while Cruz stopped Fernandez in six rounds.

Five additional bouts complete the card.
