Mexican Leo Santa Cruz in the next fight will rise to the lightweight division in order to share the ring with the American WBA regular champion Jervonta Davis. The representative of Mexico understands that he will face the most difficult fight of his career, but promises to demonstrate his best qualities and do everything possible to win.
“I am looking forward to this confrontation. We’re going to put everything on the line and put on a great show for the fans. Being an outsider is an additional motivation for me. People think I’m smaller, but I didn’t just ask this guy to be my rivals. He has good skills and tremendous strength, but I’m going to demonstrate that I’m not afraid of anyone.
This is the toughest fight of my career, so I train harder than ever. People doubt me, but it only adds motivation to go out and demonstrate my skills. I want to prove myself, so I’ll give it my best. Gervonta is dangerous until the last round. I just need to listen to my corner and stay calm. I will go down in history as a five-weight world champion from Mexico if I win, ”said Santa Cruz.
Recall that the duel between Gervonta Davis and Leo Santa Cruz will take place on October 31st in San Antonio, USA.
