LEO SANTA CRUZ (25-0-1, 15 KO), WBC super bantamweight titleholder
"I'm just excited to be on a great undercard with Maidana and Broner. I've trained really hard to be on these guys' level and I want to defend my title. I know Cesar is a great fighter and that he has everything it takes to become a champion. And I've trained hard to give him a great war. We're going to leave it all in the ring. May the best man win.
"I closed out 2012 with a great win on CBS and I'm excited to do the same this year on Showtime."
