The Cuban representative in the 86 kg division at the 2001 Serbian World Boxing Championship, the pinero Herich ruiz (10-10) defeated the Serbian local by abandonment in the third round Slobodan jovanovic (8-7), in an easy victory for the Antillean, against a rival who could not prevail, despite the support of the public.
Cruz gave a true recital in the ring of the Stark Arena in Belgrade, to the point that in the second round of the fight, his advantage was overwhelming in the official scorecards of the judges, with tickets of 20-18 and majority of 20-17. Eight seconds into the third quarter, the Serbian’s coaches decided to throw in the towel as a sign of abandonment.
