Francisco Lorenzo will face Cristobal Cruz in the co-main event at Cicero Stadium this Friday night, it was announced today by Dominic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions. The super featherweight bout is part of December Frenzy, a nine bout evening of world class professional boxing presented by 8 Count Productions and Bob Arum’s Top Rank.

Lorenzo, 26-3 (14KO’s) of the Dominican Republic, is riding a seven bout winning streak including a win over world ranked Nate Campbell on June 14, 2005.
