Roach-Cruz ends in draw

Unbeaten featherweight Lamont Roach Jr (16-0-1, 6 KOs) and former Olympian and world title challenger Orlando “El Fenomeno” Cruz (25-6-2, 13 KOs) battled to a ten round draw on Thursday night at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico in San Juan. Scores were 97-93 Roach, 96-94 Cruz, 95-95. Roach, from Washington D.C., seemingly dropped Cruz in round nine. Had that delayed knockdown counted, Roach would have edged out a victory. The WBO international super featherweight title remains vacant.
