Terrible fight, who wants to see this?

Champion97's picture

Prediction,

I think Santa Cruz is levels above Flores, but I don't think this is as easy a fight as people think, I don't think Santa Cruz will underestimate Flores, but a lot of people either will underestimate him or be proven right about him not deserving this fight, because the consensus is that Flores is poor, and I don't think this fight will do Cruz's reputation much good or raise his stock much even if he becomes a 4 weight world champion.

Santa Cruz is a 3 weight champion, 4 time world champion, he is very good, is a veteran, has had a good career, but we all wanted to see him unify against Russell, they are with the same network, shouldn't have been a hard fight to make, but the fight didn't happen. I think Cruz has gone under the rader in the last couple of years because of the big fights not happening, and I think he will be underrated because of that.

Santa Cruz is far more experienced, has achieved a lot more, Flores has never had a 12 round fight, he has 2 losses, and not against world level fighters, I think he was somwhat unlucky against Avalos, he lost on a cut, he was ahead on the cards, scored a knockdown, but he lost 2 rounds, and against Nguyen, although the cards were split, he was stopped in 6. Avalos and Nguyen are both unlikely to be half-decent world level fighters, and Flores has never beaten a world title challenger.

The weight aspect makes this fight more interesting. Santa Cruz was a champion at 118, he made 118 at 24, he moved up through the weights gradually, was a champion at 122, defended a few times before moving up, and he has been at 126 for 4-5 years, is strong at the weight, hits hard, is not small at 126, but he is also not big for the weight. Flores is not big at 130, he fought at 126 against Avalos, which was in 2017, but his last couple of fights have been above 126, most of his fights have been at 130, he is probably a career super featherweight. It will be interest be interesting to see how Santa Cruz does at 130, he's never fought at 130 before, so this is a new test for him.

Flores is 27, he is fairly experienced, Santa Cruz is 31, not young, so Flores does have slight weight and age advantages, but Santa Cruz hasn't shown any signs of age up to now, so the age advantage is small. Santa Cruz has never been down as far as I know, in 38 fights, which is a testament to his chin, he was breifly hurt in the first Frampton fight, but apart from that, I've never seen him hurt. Flores has less than 50% KOs, so he probably doesn't hit harder than all of Cruz's previous opponents, so the size aspect might not be enough for him to do damage to Santa Cruz.

I think any small advantages Flores has will be small factors, I think Santa Cruz is much better than anyone he's fought before, and this will still be an easy fight for Santa Cruz, he might not hit as hard in this fight because of the size, but he has phenomenal output, and I think the volume of clean punches, the accumulation, will be enough to stop Flores.

I think Santa Cruz stops Flores in 7, wins the belt.

Santa Cruz is a bit of a cherryypicker. Absolutely disgusting how this is for the full title

Champion97's picture

I don't think he's a cherry picker, but I agree, this should not be for a world title. I wonder if Cruz would go to 135 to fight Tank, if so, bad move, but it wouldn't surprise me.

I think we can all agree the WBA should just make Cancio the full champion if they have any integrity.

Cancio KOd Machado who KOd Corrales who was the full WBA champ at the time. How they made Davis Vs Cuellar back then for the full title was also disgraceful and now they are doing it again.

Champion97's picture

I agree, with Davis, they decided he should be champion, and made the decision to give him the full title, it's like judging a fight, deciding to score rounds 1-4 for the the favourite before the fight has started, it's joke what the WBA did there. The WBA are a disgrace, regular, super, it's all so they can collect the fees.

Gold's picture

You just know he's going to fight nobodies after winning the title too. Really amazing how PBC failed to make Santa Cruz vs. Russell.

I heard he declined Josh Warrington as well...

Champion97's picture

Sky gave Flores a lot of praise, but I thought he was very disappointing, this was a great opportunity, and he didn't take anywhere near enough risks, was a survival mission at times. I wasn't impressed by Santa Cruz, I didn't think he was cutting off the ring well, it's hard to impress against an opponent who doesn't want to engage, but he didn't pressure Flores consistently, didn't get into range to throw shots, so he couldn't break him down with accumulation. I think we've seen the best of Santa Cruz, he's a good fighter, probably has a couple of fights left, but I think he is declining.
