Undefeated super bantamweight champion Leo Santa Cruz (28-0-1, 16 KO’s) said that he is tired of people telling him that he is scared of a Rigondeaux fight. “He [Rigondeaux] is not invisible.”, said Santa Cruz during the open media workout on Thursday at Who’s Next Boxing Academy in preparation for his upcoming title defense agaisnt Jesus “Estrella” Ruiz (33-5-5, 22 KOs) on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
“I feel bad for all the people talking, but if they were in my shoes they would understand. I want the Rigondeaux fight, but the promoters have not come to an agreement. If it was up to me, I would fight him whenever. I am tired of people telling me that I am scared. I am looking for that fight as soon as possible, he is not invisible.”
Santa Cruz further said that he have a chance to beat Rigondeuax, “I think I have a chance to beat him. I know he is a tough fighter, but that’s what we are here for, to fight the best.”
