New York, NY (2/20/15) – In front of a sellout crowd of his hometown fans, junior lightweight prospect Bryant “Peewee” Cruz, of Port Chester, NY, headlined DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing debut on Friday night, in Westchester County, at the beautiful Hilton Westchester, in Rye Brook, NY. Cruz, 130, showed tremendous heart to recover from a knockdown in round two then engage Jorge Pazos, 128¼, of Guamuchil, Sinaloa, Mexico, in a slugfest the following frame. By the midway point of the scheduled eight-rounder, Cruz took back control of the contest, using his jab to set up combinations and outbox Pazos. Showing superior hand speed, Cruz used left hooks to punctuate flurries upstairs. By the seventh round, a bruised Pazos’ face had swelled up from all the punishment he’d taken. After eight exciting rounds, the judges tallied 78-73 twice, and 77-74, all for “Peewee” Cruz, who improved to 14-0 (7 KOs). Pazos dropped to 14-8-1 (8 KOs).
