Leo Santa Cruz Will Soon Move Up To Featherweight

By Rick Reeno

Newly crowned WBC super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (25-0-1, 15KOs) is planning to move to the featherweight ranks in 2014. Santa Cruz captured the WBC crown at 122-pounds on Saturday night with a third round stoppage of Victor Terrazas. He wants to make two defenses of his title before moving up to 126-pounds.

"This was a dream of mine. I've wanted this belt since I was a little kid. I want to make two defenses of this title and then I'm going to move up," Santa Cruz said. "I don't care who I fight next. I'll fight anybody. Whatever Golden Boy and my manager Al Haymon tells me."

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer would like to have Santa Cruz return in the fall.

"I would like to see him fight again tomorrow - who wouldn't? We have several dates that I am working on [where Santa Cruz could fight again]....November 2, November 9 and December 7," Schaefer said.
