Leo Santa Cruz

Professional Featherweight Boxer


Leo had a strong amateur career with a record of 148-7. He went pro at age 18 in 2006 as a bantamweight. Santa Cruz is a pressure fighter and a precision puncher. He is soft-spoken, full of smiles, and absolutely relentless in the ring. “El Terremoto,” which means “the earthquake,” is his nickname, portraying how he impacts his opponents with a stream of punches and combinations. He has earned world titles in three weight classes.


“There are no little fights for me. I consider every fighter dangerous. You lose when you think a fighter is not on your level and then he comes in hungrier than you. That will never happen to me.”
