Welterweight Ronald Cruz (20-3, 15 KOs) reckons that undefeated 2012 Olympian Errol “The Truth” Spence, Jr. (12-0, 10 KOs) will have more on his hands than he bargained for when they collide tonight in a Showtime televised bout from the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. “They’re obviously taking this fight because they feel like they can beat me,” said Cruz. “But the experience I have as a professional will cause problems for him and ultimately win the fight for me. I’ve definitely fought much tougher competition. He has an impressive amateur record, but fighting as a professional is a whole different ballgame.

“I definitely think I need a knockout to win. This can’t be a close fight. I’m not saying I’m going to go out there and look for a knockout – if it comes, it comes – but I’m going to go out there and try to cause a lot of damage…I’m definitely here to make a statement!”
