Photos: Maurice Hooker vs. Cristobal Cruz - Official Weigh-In

By Ryan Burton

Stacey Verbeek, who's husband Arnie manages super lightweight contender Maurice "Mighty Mo" Hooker (21-0-3), has advised BoxingScene.com that her fighter will return to action tomorrow in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico against former champion Cristobal Cruz (41-20-4).

The fight is scheduled for 10 rounds and is designed to keep Hooker active.  The Dallas native fought three times in 2016.

The 27-year-old was supposed to return to the ring this Saturday on the Miguel Cotto-James Kirkland undercard.

The whole card was scratched when Kirkland reportedly suffered a broken nose in sparring.  Hooker's promoter Roc Nation Sports then placed him on a show in Kansas City that that has also been canceled.

Hooker went 2-0-1 in 2016 with two first round knockouts.  He battled former interim champion Darleys Perez to a draw on the Sergey Kovalev-Andre Ward undercard in his most recent fight. Cruz just fought in February and picked up a win to snap a four fight losing streak.

This screwhead had to have gotten in many rumbles in his youth with the name he has. Probably why he is able to beat the everloving feces out of any ordinary man in the street and will likely end up…
