Leo Santa Cruz looking for rematch with Gervonta Davis

Santa Cruz admits he got caught with a huge shot but thinks he would’ve won if the fight went the distance.

In this video interview with Fight Hub TV following the Errol Spence vs Danny Garcia fight, Leo Santa Cruz shares some of his thoughts on the bout and talks a bit about where he wants to go next in his career, saying he’ll be looking for a rematch against Davis if he can manage it. Check out some quotes below.

Santa Cruz on Spence-Garcia:

“I knew it was gonna be a tough fight for both. They were landing some good shots, both of them. But like I said, if Errol Spence threw more punches he was going to win the fight because he’s busier and Danny wasn’t as busy.”

On what he wants to do next following his knockout loss to Davis:

“The fight [against Davis] was good. I got caught. I don’t take nothing away from ‘Tank’ Davis but I think that if the fight would’ve gone 12 rounds, I think I could’ve won the fight. So, you know, I’m gonna ask for the rematch.

“I’m gonna ask for the rematch, hopefully they give it to me. And if not, we’re gonna go look for another fight.”

On Tyson-Jones:

“It was good, you know, two legends. They were great fighters and looked really good compared to being that age.”

On a proposed Tyson-Holyfield fight:

“They’re legends, people still love them. People want to see them. And even thought the fans know they’re not going to go all out and everything, they still want to watch them because they know they’re great fighters.”
