Leo Santa Cruz Cracks CompuBox Plus/Minus List

Rising star Leo Santa Cruz's +15 rating places him #3 on the updated CompuBox plus/minus list.  Santa Cruz has not yet faced the level of competition of Floyd Mayweather (+25) or Canelo Alvarez (+16), but with five solid performances in 2012 he merits inclusion on the list.  Fighters one fight away from joining the party: Yuriorkis Gamboa, Adrien Broner, Gennady Golovkin.

Mayweather (9)     42%                     17%              +25

Gamboa  (5)         30%                     20%              +10

Santa Cruz hasn't faced the best opposition yet, but I don't see it so far from Canelo's level of opposition anyway.
