Rolly Romero Defends Tough Choice: Picks Isaac Cruz Over Ryan Garcia for a Mexican Slugfest

WBA junior welterweight champion, Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero, has stirred the boxing world by insisting he’s opted for a more challenging opponent in Isaac Cruz over Ryan Garcia. Despite initial talks linking Romero to a showdown with Garcia, the 28-year-old Las Vegas native chose Cruz for his next bout, set to take place on March 30 at the T-Mobile Arena.

Romero justifies his decision by claiming Cruz, known as ‘Pitbull,’ poses a more significant challenge than Garcia. In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Romero explains, “I decided to take a much more difficult fight than Ryan Garcia… Pitbull Cruz is a more difficult fighter than Ryan Garcia. Wouldn’t you agree?”

Highlighting Cruz’s durability, aggressive style, and previous performance against Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis, where he lasted the 12-round distance, Romero emphasizes his preference for an exciting, come-forward fighter. He envisions a Mexican slugfest against Cruz, contrasting it with his perception of Garcia potentially running in their proposed bout.

Despite calls from Golden Boy to face Garcia, Romero stands firm in his choice, asserting, “When I said I was fighting Pitbull, I got calls from everybody at Golden Boy, begging me to fight [Ryan Garcia]. So, let’s see who needed who in reality. I don’t need them.”

Romero also defends his decision to align with Al Haymon, citing a better offer and care for fighters. He dismisses the notion of fighting on DAZN, expressing confidence in growing on Amazon Prime, a platform he deems as the biggest in boxing history.

In echoing his previous statements, Romero underscores his boldness in selecting Cruz, emphasizing the Mexican fighter’s strength, durability, and excitement in the ring. As the date for the bout approaches, the boxing community eagerly anticipates the outcome of Romero’s unconventional choice.
