Cruz ready to go now

On September 21st Ronald Cruz of Bethlehem, PA, 17-0, 12 KO’s, will challenge Miami’s Antwone Smith, 21-4-1, 12 KO’s for the WBC Continental Americas Welterweight Title. In preparation for that battle Cruz hosted a media workout today in his hometown of Bethlehem, PA. The fight will be part of the NBC Sports Network Fight Night broadcast, beginning 9PM ET on the 21st. The Cruz-Smith fight is part of a seven-bout card at the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem that also includes a 12 round IBF Junior Middleweight eliminator between Gabriel Rosado and Charles Whittaker and a 10 round Light Heavyweight matchup pitting Sergey Kovalev against Lionell Thompson.

“This time it’ll be nothing new, I’ll be relaxed and I’ll be able to do my thing. There’s nothing like fighting at home, with the fans there’s just alot of emotion, but like I said, this time I will be alot more relaxed in there. Camp has been phenomenal, and I am ready to go right now!”
