La Cruz-Cásseres

Aguascalientes, May 19 (JIT)-- Cuban fighter Julio Cesar La Cruz says he'll wait to see what happens in his boxing match against Colombian Deivis Cásseres.

"My goal is to seek victory, but always with respect for my opponent and prepared for the best man to win in the ring," said the two-time Olympic champion about the cruiserweight duel agreed as part of the professional card to be held this Friday.

However, the five-time world champion said that despite the demands of the six rounds, "I have worked to put on a good show and give the best of me".

And he insists on the objective of "making the world fans appreciate that the members of Domadores de Cuba have enough quality and lineage to box in any field".
