Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz (24-2-1, 17 KO’s) is no longer up for supporting roles. He deserves starring roles, along with any champion at the 135-pound limit. No more no less.
And they are not bells thrown to the sky for the impressive knockout he gave Eduardo ‘Zurdito’ Ramírez (27-3-3, 12 KO’s) on the night of Sunday, September 4, at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, but because it was able to stand up to a Gervonta Davis (27-0-0, 25 KO’s), who is on the crest of the wave in the division, and literally overwhelm a former veteran champion like Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-5 -0, 18 KO’s).
But, above all, because a fighter with an iron punch has a chance against anyone. And that is the DNA of the Mexican ‘Pitbull’.
He is not the most technical, the most talkative, or the most handsome. But whoever “renamed” him Pitbull was not wrong, Cruz is a fighting dog that comes out to bite and when he catches his prey, he doesn’t let go.
To the misfortune of the also Aztec ‘Zurdito’ Ramírez, he had to live it in his own flesh. His refined technique and strategy of evading his opponent’s charges with shifts and a jab educated, they served him little or nothing.
Just in the second round a right overhand from Cruz sent him to the canvas like a sack of potatoes. It was the beginning of the end.
The referee gave the benefit of the doubt to Ramirez, who rose from the ground as if he were an extra on the popular television series The Walking Dead. The impartial benevolence could have cost the ‘Zurdito’ dearly, who more than paid for the audacity of going up to 135 pounds from 130 without even an acclimatization fight.

Against Pitbull, that seemed like heresy and so it was.
‘Pitbull’ finished his work fast and fresh.
In the audience, attentive and smiling, was Davis and the fans in the arena clamored for a rematch. One where Cruz arrives as God and the Virgin command, with enough preparation time, something that did not happen in the first contest when Cruz officiated as he replaced. Still, he put the No. 3 fighter in the division in ESPN’s rankings in serious trouble.
Will it be Gervonta, will it be Haney, I don’t know. I don’t know who will be his next rival. What I do have clear is that ‘Pitbull’ Cruz has the punch of a middleweight competing in light weight, and with that power in his fists, he will always have options to beat even the opponent with the most exquisite technique and high boxing IQ.
