His life has been no vacation, and so after 27 years, Leo Santa Cruz is finally getting around to taking one.
It was a vintage look, the Leo Santa Cruz equivalent of bellbottom jeans, ghastly pink leg warmers or some crusty old concert tee that hipsters pay too much for at second-hand shops.
Leo Santa Cruz is a pressure fighter. Kiko Martinez is a come-forward kind of guy. You want volume? Saturday night’s fight is going to have it at Van Halen-circa-1984 levels when Santa Cruz attempts to defend his 126-pound world title at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California (Showtime, 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT).
Going to his opponents’ backyards for high-profile matches has not worked out very well for Kiko Martinez. All six of the Spaniard’s losses—two by knockout—have happened on the other guy’s home soil. Even so, he remains undaunted.
