Bulk of Cruz success seems to be the result of hard, yet smart, extremely well thought of work.
So with his work ethics, and stuff, I guess it's possible for him to prepare perfectly, against all odds, getting his knees close to 100%, with cardio, movement etc. all on point.
Everything else is against him though.
With his style, getting rusty, out of rhythm, out of touch with fighting for so long...
Against a fighter who needs just one mistake of your to ruin you.
