ANDhe mexican, Isaac Cross, suffered to be able to give the weight in the weigh-in ceremony before Yuriorkis Gamboa, since in his first attempt since he was above what was agreed in the lightweight division.

The ‘Pitbull’ had two attempts on the scale after the first gave 136.5 pounds, exceeding the limit required by this category. It was until his second chance that he was able to give the 134.8 pounds to be able to face Gamboa.

Yuriorkis had no problem with the scale and dialed 134.8 pounds on his first try, setting up the fight to be part of the card starring Errol Spence Jr and Yordenis Ugs.

Cruz is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis in a war that was considered one of the best fights of last year, while Gamboa has two straight losses against Devin Haney and Davis, but he hasn’t fought since 2020.
