Andy Cruz Reveals World Title Aspirations

Eddie Hearn Praises Andy Cruz

Andy Cruz enjoyed a glittering amateur career, which saw him win a number of gold medals, including gold at the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. Since joining the professional ranks, the Cuban-born fighter is 2-0, with 1 KO victory, and has taken seamlessly to the pro ranks. His last win was impressive as he dismantled Jovanni Straffon in just three rounds on the Devin Haney vs. Regis Prograis undercard.

The Cuban-born fighter has revealed his future aspirations to Matchroom, and he is not planning to take his time to get there: “I’m looking forward to put on a show that the public deserve. The ring will decide what happens but I want to challenge for a World Title soon.”

Cruz also said“I’m happy to be back on stage again so quickly. He just needs to be careful because I’m coming for everything.” He added: “And I want to win every title along the way, and make history in this sport.”

Praise from Eddie Hearn

Hearn has spoken highly about the lightweight sensation before. When signing Cruz, the Matchroom CEO said: “Andy is one of the most sought-after fighters to make the switch to the pro code, and we are honoured to be trusted with the career of such a talented man.”

“We’re completely on the same page with Andy and his team, we want to grow his profile and showcase him on the biggest cards, but we also know that a man of this talent will move fast in the sport, and we could be seeing him in massive fights sooner rather than later.”
