“Pitbull” Cruz pushing toward Gervonta Davis rematch

Isaac Cruz announced his intention to land a rematch with Gervonta Davis ahead of his clash with Eduardo Ramirez on September 4th.

The 24-year-old ran Davis despite being on the wrong side of a unanimous decision in December last year. Since then, Cruz stopped Yuriorkis Gamboa in five rounds to get back on track.

But rather than looking for a world title shot, Cruz is eyeing another opportunity against Davis on Pay Per View.

Discussing his intention a month out from the Ramirez fight, the “Pitbull” is determined to get another victory.

Gervonta Davis rematch

“I’m thrilled about this fight because the fans will be the true winners. I can’t wait to get in the ring and compete,” said Cruz.

“We’re not going to take anything away from anybody because we know what he’s capable of. Eduardo Ramirez is a very tough and complicated rival for me.

“I’m planning to welcome Eduardo Ramirez to the division in the harshest ways. We’ll be ready for whatever he brings into the ring.

“The fight against Gervonta Davis motivated me and gave me the goal of wanting to face him again. All I have to do is take down every opponent they put in front of me.

“I have a serious opponent in front of me now. But I know I have what it takes to bring the title back to Mexico City.”

Matured Isaac Cruz

On how he’s matured since the Davis encounter, Cruz added: “I am a more mature and experienced fighter than I’ve been in the past.

“I can guarantee that the experience I’m going to acquire will make me more aware of everything surrounding me. It will make me even better in that rematch against Gervonta Davis.

“I’m ready for any of the top fighters at lightweight. When the time comes, I hope they step up to the plate and take on the challenge.”

WBC lightweight eliminator

Cruz spoke at the press conference for what has been sanctioned by the WBC as a lightweight title eliminator. The co-main event clash means whoever wins will be on course for a battle with undisputed champion Devin Haney.

The Mexican may go down the WBC route to pick up a belt before securing another crack at Tank.

Ramirez is an overwhelming underdog to shock Cruz, having lost to Claudio Marrero and Lee Selby recently.
