Ronald Cruz: I need a Knockout to Win (Over Errol Spence Jr)

RONALD CRUZ:

"They're obviously taking this fight because they feel like they can beat me.  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'm not worried that I haven't faced a southpaw before.  I've been sparring with a lot of different southpaw styles and I feel comfortable against them.  He won't bring anything I haven't seen before.

 

"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.  I thought my fight against Kermit Cintron was a bad decision, but I respect the judges' decision.  That fight made me a much better fighter. 

 

"I feel like I've never shown the best of me and I feel confident that my best will come out tomorrow.  This is my shot and I need to take advantage of it."
