WBA super champion in the second featherweight (up to 59 kg), Mexican Leo Santa Cruz (37-1-1, 19 KO), discussing at the final press conference the upcoming fight with American puncher Jervonte Davis (23-0-0, 22 KO), named him the best lightweight.
“I’m ready. It is clear that I will face a tough fighter, the best in his division. That is why I chose this fight. If you want to be considered one of the best – hit the best, and I consider Jervonta as such.
Yes, there is also Gary Russell, but I think Tank is the best fighter. In general, the hardest fight awaits me, and this is a challenge for me, “said Santa Cruz.
