Santa Cruz Demolishes Terrazas in Three, Wins WBC Title

By Rick Reeno

StubHub Center, Carson, California - Leo Santa Cruz (25-0-1, 15KOs) beat down Victor Terrazas (37-3-1, 21KOs) in three rounds to capture the WBC super bantamweight championship. Santa Cruz becomes a two-division beltholder.

Santa Cruz had Terrazas on the backfoot in the very first round. Terrazas was fighting back hard, but getting hit often in the process. In the second, the right eye of Terrazas was swelling shut from the incoming punches and there were plenty of them landing.

During the third, a series of punches sent Terrazas down along the ropes. Santa Cruz was on the attack when Terrazas beat the count. Terrazas was trying his best to counter back, but he was dropped for a second time from another series of shots. He once again beat the count. The referee took a good look at the damaged face of Terrazas and waved things off.

I was just about to come into this thread and wax fantastic about Santa Cruz and yet another awesome performance, but the number of references to the boxer known as Rigondeaux have suddenly left me feeling very sleepy.

[QUOTE=HitmanHattonAY;13680419]Santa Cruz Vs Rigondeux ?[/QUOTE] Unlikely we'll see it unless one of the fighters switches promoters. Once again boxing politics trumps logic and fan interest.
