Leo Santa Cruz is very motivated to do that Saturday night in San Antonio. The four-division champion wants to pull off an upset versus Gervonta Davis.
Jose Santa Cruz, who has trained his son since he was a kid, has been confined to a wheelchair during Leo’s training sessions for the Davis fight. He almost died from COVID-19 during the summer.
“I’m fighting this fight for my family, for my dad,” Leo Santa Cruz stated during the most recent episode of Showtime’s “ALL ACCESS: Davis vs. Santa Cruz.”
Showtime aired footage of Jose Santa Cruz in the gym and at home working with his son during recent weeks.
“My dad means the world to me,” Leo Santa Cruz said. “Everything I have is thanks to him because he pushed me every day.”
