Leo santacruz Hosted a fundraiser for “The Lupus Foundation of America”

 WBC junior featherweight beltholder Leo Santa Cruz  hosted a bowling tournament for the Lupus Foundation of America this Sunday afternoon at Pinz Bowling Center (11 a.m.-1 p.m.) in Sherman Oaks, California.

“It’s a benefit to do something good,” said the soft-spoken Santa Cruz last Friday morning before his day’s training session at the Who’s Next Boxing Academy in the City of Industry.
Lupus is something Santa Cruz is quite familiar with given his older brother is afflicted with it. “He’s doing a lot better,” he said. “From the last time he was in the hospital, he’s gotten a lot better and now he comes to the gym and helps out.”

As his profile grows, Santa Cruz understands he can help out such worthy causes.
“I’m barely learning little by little but I am trying to get a lot of people to know about it and make an impact. We’ll see how it goes and hopefully everything goes good and we do a good thing,” said the young man who returns to the ring on December 14th in San Antonio versus Cesar Seda. “If I get more popular, we’ll be doing more things for stuff like cancer, help all the people we can. I’m willing to do these things.
“That’s one of the things that’s always been on my mind, to help people that need it and wherever I can, I’m going to try to do that and do what I can.”

Leo Santa Cruz vacates IBF title

Leo Santa Cruz, looking for bigger fights and having trouble making the 118-pound weight limit, has vacated his bantamweight world title and is moving up to the 122-pound weight class.

Santa Cruz made it official when he notified the IBF on Monday, Lindsey Tucker, the organization’s championships chairman, told ESPN.com.

The move came one day before a Tuesday purse bid was supposed to take place for Santa Cruz’s mandatory title defense against Jamie McDonnell. Since Santa Cruz was not going to fight McDonnell, he vacated the title.

“We knew Leo was going to vacate,” said Golden Boy chief executive Richard Schaefer, Santa Cruz’s promoter. “He felt there were no more challenges in that weight class and he felt it was time to move up for new challenges.

“We get together and discuss with our fighters where they are and where they want to be. That’s what we’ve done with Leo and his team — his father and (adviser) Al (Haymon). We felt, jointly, that it made sense for Leo to move up.”

The 24-year-old Santa Cruz (23-0-1, 13 KOs), who was born in Mexico and lives in Southern California, had a breakout year in 2012, a year in which he was among the honorable mentions for fighter of the year honors. He went 5-0 in an exceptionally busy schedule for a top fighter.

After winning a vacant 118-pound title by lopsided decision against Vusi Malinga in June — in which the all-action Santa Cruz threw more than 100 punches per round — he made three defenses: knockouts of Eric Morel and Victor Zaleta and a lopsided decision against Alberto Guevara on Dec. 15.

Santa Cruz’s fight with Guevara marked the return of boxing to CBS for the first time in 15 years.

“Leo had a very busy year and it was important for his body to rest after he was so active, so we said let’s target a ring return for sometime in May,” Schaefer said.

Santa Cruz’s debut as a full-time junior featherweight could come on its own card or, according to Schaefer, he could be part of the May 4 pay-per-view event Golden Boy is planning, which is supposed to be headlined by pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr.

“For the first fight at the higher weight class, we want to pick a quality opponent and we see in the next two or so fights that Leo will be fighting for a world title again,” Schaefer said. “He didn’t move up to do tune-up fights.

“We will have to see what is available for him for a big fight, but we believe as a company that, in no particular order, Leo Santa Cruz, (Nonito) Donaire, Abner Mares, (Guillermo) Rigondeaux and Gary Russell Jr. are the best guys in these (junior featherweight and featherweight) weight classes, and we are not afraid to put Leo in with anyone.”

According to Tucker, England’s McDonnell (20-2-1, 9 KOs), the former European champion, who stopped Darwin Zamora in the eighth round of an October title eliminator, and Mexico’s Julio Ceja (24-0, 22 KOs) will be ordered to fight to fill the vacant belt.

The representatives for McDonnell and Ceja have a month to negotiate, but if they do not make a deal, a purse bid will be ordered.

Cameron Dunkin Speaks about Leo SantaCruz

Not unlike Garcia, another fighter with strong family ties to boxing is Leo Santa Cruz. The 5’7” bantamweight broke onto the international scene with three terrific wins this year. “Leo has the potential to be a pound-for-pound guy but first, he needs to win a world title,” said Dunkin. “I don’t want to get ahead of myself but he has such great potential. Leo was 148-7 as an amateur and won the world amateur championship at 15-years-old. Boxing comes natural to him, growing up in a boxing family, and I see unlimited potential from him.”
