Said the 23-year-old Martin about his title defense, “Fighting at the Garden is a huge opportunity for my team and me. Especially, being on the undercard of the biggest fight of the year, broadcast by the leader of sports, HBO Boxing. On March 18 fans in attendance and viewers from around the globe will see why I’m among boxing’s best prospects.”

"I am hungry and excited to get back in the ring, especially on such a big card,” said Cruz. "Fighting an undefeated prospect shows that I'm willing to face anyone to get to the top and will take any opportunity that comes my way. I am bringing my A-game on March 18 and WILL get the win."
 
Fighting on the undercards of boxing superstars Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez in addition to heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder, Martin has thrilled fans across the country with his world class skills since turning professional in 2013.
 
Winner of his first 16 fights, the 27-year-old Cruz will be looking to continue on the winning path, most recently scoring a unanimous decision victory over Moises Delgadillo on April 20, 2016 in Westchester, New York.
 
A popular all-action fighter, Cruz has fought 14 times in the New York City area and will have a decidedly home field advantage against Martin on March 18 at Madison Square Garden.
