LOUIS CRUZ RETURNS ON BROADWAY BOXING WITH IMPRESSIVE TKO VICTORY
GOLUB HALTS MENA IN THREE
PAGAN ENDS LAYOFF WITH TKO1 New York, NY – On Wednesday night, DiBella Entertainment staged another installment of its popular Broadway Boxing series at New York City’s famed B.B. King Blues Club and Grill in midtown Manhattan in front of a passionate and lively crowd. Headlining the card was undefeated Bronx junior welterweight prospect Louis Cruz in his ring return following a 10-month absence related to a hand injury. Now fully recovered, the 24-year-old Cruz, 139¾, impressively dispatched of southpaw Ariel Vazquez, 137½, Managua, Nicaragua, in the sixth of a scheduled eight-rounder. Cruz almost ended matters very early as the first jab he threw in the fight dropped Vazquez for a count. Vazquez arose but was soon felled again by a devastating counter right hook to the chin. Surviving the opening round, Vazquez was subsequently more mindful of his defense as the bout ensued. Cruz remained aggressive while getting in some much-needed rounds to shake off his ring rust. Vazquez was floored once more in the fourth frame by a right hand-left hook combination. In the round six, Cruz landed a blistering left hook that immediately bloodied and broke Vazquez’ nose. To his credit, Vazquez stayed on his feet but succumbed to the following attack from Cruz prompting a referee stoppage at 2:41 of the stanza. Cruz is now 11-0 (5 KOs), while Vazquez’ record dropped to 11-10-2 (8 KOs). As an amateur, Cruz was a New York Golden Gloves champion and after a second-place finish at the 2011 National Golden Gloves, he competed in the 2012 US Olympic Trials before turning pro later
