Andy Cruz, the boxer who turned his Olympic dreams into golden reality and who now stepped into the professional ring, is a testament to hard work, ambition, and sheer talent. His recent interview with Boxing Social paints a clear image of a rising star, poised to conquer the world of boxing one belt at a time.
“This a huge dream for me,” Cruz begins. He’s tasted the glory of an Olympic win, and now he’s seeking more – more titles, more victories, more chances to prove his talent. “My life dream was to become an Olympic champion. I did that. My next dream was to make my professional debut. I’ve done that. It was the first step on a path. I want to grow. I want to get better. I want to fight the best and start collecting more belts.”
Eyes on the Prize
The question on everyone’s minds, of course, is when he will challenge for World titles. To that, Cruz displays a pragmatic response, underlining the significance of growth, learning, and discipline. “That depends on how things develop, my process. It’s about preparing really well now… and sooner rather than later, I will be doing that.” He is well aware of the path that lies ahead and is prepared to tackle it head-on.
Every fight teaches a boxer something new, and Cruz’s recent match was no exception. He paints a vivid picture of the fight, offering insight into his transition to professional boxing, “I already knew certain things about the professional game, but today I kind of tried it in the flesh for the first time. There were lots of differences, you know, how demanding those extra rounds are, those gloves as well… you can never ever switch off in a professional boxing ring because things can come in over with one shot.”
The Fight Ahead
Cruz’s outlook towards future challenges echoes with unwavering resolve, “This fight will really do me good stead for my future. I’ll learn a lot from this in the future.” It’s clear that Cruz is a fighter in every sense of the word, not just in the ring but in life, always eager to learn, improve, and conquer.
In a heartfelt note of gratitude, Cruz acknowledges his fans’ unwavering support, “I want to continue to fight and to do well, to put on a show. I want to say thanks to all the fans that are here, both the ones that are here and the ones that aren’t here. Thanks for the unconditional support, and I will never let them down.”
His words reverberate with sincerity and dedication – a clear testament to his commitment towards his career and his fans.
