Issac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz might be best known for his close fight with Gervonta Davis, but that doesn’t mean that he is going out of his way to advocate for that fight in the prelude to his March 30 WBA title fight.

Cruz faces WBA junior welterweight world champion Rolando Romero in a bout that serves as the co-feature for Keith Thurman versus Tim Tszyu on Amazon Prime pay-per-view. 

The bout also signifies something significant for Cruz; the chance to win his first world title. Despite Cruz making a deep connection with fight fans, he has yet to hoist a world title above his shoulders or place one around his waist. 

“I am just going to focus on taking care of business on March 30th,” Cruz told BoxingScene when asked about a potential rematch with Tank. 

In fact, Cruz didn’t even mention Tank’s name once upon being asked about fighting him if he is victorious against Romero. Cruz was thought to be a potential opponent for the superstar boxer last fall, but nothing came of it. 

“[I am focused on] winning the fight, shining in my own career and then whatever happens next I know God will take care of putting what is meant to be on my path.”

Cruz holds a record of 25-2-1, 17 KOs. Romero, the champion, is 15-1, 13 KOs. 

Cruz is on a three-win streak, two of them have come by knockout and his last victory a split-decision over Giovanni Cabrera. 

Romero won the vacant WBA junior welterweight world title in his last fight via ninth-round stoppage of Ismael Barroso. Prior to that bout, Romero was knocked out by Davis. 

Now Cruz’s main focus is winning a world title – not any fighter in particular, even if he has history with an extremely famous and popular pay-per-view star.
