Boxing Round-up – Isaac Cruz vs. Eduardo Ramirez – Event Review and Fight Analysis
Isaac Cruz vs. Eduardo Ramirez
Our Pick: Isaac Cruz
Outcome: Isaac Cruz brutally knocks out Eduardo Ramirez in the second round
Isaac Cruz made another strong statement.
The Mexican slugger stopped countryman Eduardo Ramirez at 2:27 of the second round of a scheduled 10-round lightweight bout on the Andy Ruiz Jr. vs. Luis Ortiz card Sunday in Los Angeles.
Cruz had some trouble cornering an elusive Ramirez in a relatively uneventful opening round.
However, that changed in an instant midway through Round 2, when Cruz put his countryman down and hurt him badly with a perfect left hook to the chin.
The worst was yet to come for Ramirez, as Cruz attacked his wounded prey viciously until a three-punch combination put him on his pants again.
That was enough for referee Jack Reiss, who didn’t hesitate to stop the fight to save Ramirez from further punishment.
The Aftermath: Isaac Cruz asked for a title match after his victory over Eduardo Ramirez.
Cruz, who is ranked No. 5 by The Ring, has won his last two bouts since losing to Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis on December 5.
With Davis at ringside, the pro-Cruz crowd began chanting ‘We want Tank’ and would boo Davis anytime his image appeared on the big screen above the ring.
The 24-year-old Cruz is hopeful a fight against Davis does take place, but he did offer another opponent when he was asked after the fight who he would also like to fight; Devin Haney.
Haney, who is the Ring Magazine lightweight champion and undisputed lightweight champion, is facing George Kambosos, Jr. in a rematch on October 16.
Once that match takes place, we will see what comes Cruz’s way.
