Isaac 'Pitbull' Cruz has hit back at some of the recent critical statements from unbeaten lightweight contender Ryan Garcia - with respect to Cruz's fight against WBA "regular" champion Gervonta 'Tank' Davis from last Sunday in Los Angeles.
Cruz accepted the fight as a late-replacement after Davis' original opponent Rolando 'Rolly' Romero was pulled from the fight due to a sexual assault allegation.
If Garcia felt the fight should had been easy for Davis, then Cruz wants to test his words in the ring.
"He is free to express himself however he wants, I have nothing to say about him outside of ring. All he has to do is call my promoter and tell me where to sign, and I'd go to the patio of his house to fight him without a problem," Cruz told Boxeo Mundial.
"Silly fighters who are champions of social networks, who dedicate themselves to uploading videos for their channels, we just demonstrated to them that we are fighters who, regardless of the anticipation time, did not refuse [the opportunity] and put up a great fight."
The boxer from Mexico City grabbed the spotlight Sunday night, by headlining a Showtime pay-per-view event against Davis, who was viewed by observers as a massive favorite.
Most had expected Davis to end the fight with a knockout, but Cruz became only the second fight to last the full distance with Davis and the only fighter to handle his power for a full twelve rounds.
"We fought the 135 champion who they said was invincible. We endured for an entire twelve rounds and I think I'm ready for whatever, for 'the glass jaw' Ryan Garcia, for [Devin] Haney, [Vasiliy] Lomachenko , [George] Kambosos, it does not matter," Cruz said.
