Mike Tyson Says Isaac Cruz Reminds Him Of Himself

In an interview with Ring Magazine, ‘Iron Mike’ revealed that Mexican boxer Isaac Cruz was the one who reminded him of himself.

Tyson remarked that Cruz’s aggressive fighting style and his relentless approach in the ring resonate with his own mentality as a fighter.

He also described Cruz as someone who “comes at you with bad intentions,” indicating that the Mexican embodies the determined and aggressive spirit that the former champion himself possessed during his prime.

As of November 2021, Cruz is ranked as the world’s sixth-best active lightweight by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board, eighth by BoxRec, and tenth by The Ring magazine.

WBA (Regular) lightweight champion Gervonta Davis had originally been slated to face Rolando Romero on 5 December 2021. However, when Romero was pulled from the bout due to sexual harassment allegations made against him, Cruz was announced as Davis’ replacement opponent, marking the first time that Cruz headlined a pay-per-view show.

The fight was a tightly contested affair, with the judges’ scorecards reading 115–113, 115–113 and 116–112 in Davis’ favor, resulting in the second loss of Cruz’s professional career.

Cruz rebounded from his loss against Davis on 16 April 2022, when he knocked down former unified featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa multiple times en route to a fifth-round technical knockout victory at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on the undercard of Errol Spence Jr. vs. Yordenis Ugás.
