WBO #1 ranked featherweight Orlando Cruz has left the confines of Buffalo, New York and has arrived in Kissimmee, Florida to wrap up some final training in some sunny weather. Cruz is scheduled to fight on March 15th from Kissimmee against slick, strong, tall and puncher southpaw Aalan Martinez 14-1-10 of Guadalajara, Mexico. The Cruz vs Martinez war will conclude the spring boxing series of Boxeo Telemundo Ford, the summer series will start in late June.
“Some people ask me, are you crazy taking a fight with Aalan Martinez, I tell them this is what I do for a living, now is when I need to stay active to earn the right to stay at the top. I know Aalan is not a walk in the park, I see him as a door that I need to open to continue my quest to become world champion,” said Cruz.
