Isaac “Pitbull” Cruz’s dynamic, title-winning stoppage of Rolando “Rolly” Romero last month has earned him a requested quick turnaround title defense in August, Cruz’s manager told BoxingScene on Tuesday.

“‘Pitbull’ wants to get back in the ring and stay busy,” Sean Gibbons, Cruz’s manager, said as he and Cruz provided interviews and toured Mexican television networks Televisa and TV Azteca.

“Down here, it’s not Beatlemania – it’s Pitbullmania,” Gibbons said. “People are writing songs for him, creating murals for him. It’s something.”

Cruz (26-2-1, 18 KOs) captured the WBA junior welterweight belt on March 30 when he stopped then-champion Romero in the eighth round with a barrage of power blows to the head.

Cruz, 25, retreated back to Mexico to celebrate and visit with his family.

There, he and Gibbons learned they have the blessing of Premier Boxing Champions and Southern California-based promoter TGB Promotions to stage an early August card that Cruz will headline against an opponent yet to be finalized. The bout’s likely destination is Las Vegas, Gibbons said.

The brief layoff is something Cruz’s famed promoter, Manny Pacquiao, also sought.

“Manny wants activity, to keep his momentum going,” Gibbons said in reference to Cruz’s position in a loaded division, which counts unbeatens Gervonta “Tank” Davis and Devin Haney, IBF titleholder Subriel Matias and WBO titleholder Teofimo Lopez as 140-pound rivals.

With Davis (29-0, 27 KOs) being pointed to a June 22 lightweight-title main event in Houston against Frank Martin, Pacquiao has expressed his wishes for Cruz and Davis to fight in December, Gibbons said.

“December is perfect,” Gibbons said. “We’re not chasing Tank now that we have the belt, but everywhere we go, everyone wants to know when we’re fighting Gervonta Davis. He’ll fight. Then Pitbull will fight. And we’ll be ready.”

Gibbons said Cruz impressed his promoters by receiving raucous fan support during his convincing co-main-event triumph, and there’s sentiment that he can recruit another strong contingent in his first title defense.

“He’s ready to fight, and the fans are ready to see him again,” Gibbons said. “The fans have spoken.”
