On March 15th the classic Mexico vs. Puerto Rico boxing rivalry will continue as Puerto Rican WBO #2 ranked featherweight Orlando Cruz (19-2-1, 9 KOs) promoted by All Star Boxing Promotion will risk his high ranking against a younger and hun…gry prospect in Aalan Martinez (13-1-1, 9 KOs) from Mexico. The scheduled for twelve round featherweight main event bout will take place at the Civic Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Cruz will be defending his WBO Latino featherweight title. The 5’9 Martinez, who is promoted by Boxing360, will physically tower over the 5’4 Cruz. However the veteran Cruz has shown in recent fights that he can outbox or even knock out bigger and younger opposition. Martinez for his part was very eager for the opportunity to fight Cruz. “The fact that Martinez did not hestitate at all on taking this fight speaks volumes. I very much believe that Aalan will score the upset win March 22nd over Cruz,” stated Boxing360 promoter Mario Yagobi. Tuto Zabala Jr. (All Star Boxing) will promote event and it will be broadcast live on Telemundo beginning at 11:35 PM ET/PT
