Boxing – Junior Lightweight Bout – Rocky Lockridge VS Dennis Cruz

DOG ASIDE:

Dennis Cruz is was an  American professional boxer in the lightweight division during the golden age of boxing (1964 – 1995)….who was raised in the Bronx of New York City….retiring after 31 professional fights with a record of 27 – 4 with 22 KO’s….who in this junior lightweight (super featherweight) bout takes on Rocky Lockridge….who had been a former WBC featherweight champion and WBC & WBA super featherweight champion…..coming off a loss of his WBC super featherweight title to Julio Cezar Chavez in his last fight prior to his bout with Cruz…..along with a loss of his WBA super featherweight title to Wilfredo Gomez just three fights prior.  This fight between Cruz and Lockridge would be a stepping stone to Lockridge winning the IBF junior lightweight title from Barry Michael in his next fight.

Rocky Lockridge would win this bout with a 7th round KO in a very competitive fight.
