Ronald Cruz dug deep to finally break down a stubborn and determined Alberto Cruz at the Sands in Bethlehem, PA. on Thursday.
Although two judges had Cruz ahead on the cards by a single point most ringsiders thought Morales had his nose in front and finally broke down Morales, of Miami, with two knockdowns early in round 10, the second one for the full 10-count.
Cruz goes to 19-2, 14 K0s; Morales falls to 11-3-2, 8 K0s.
On the undercard super featherweight prospect Jason Sosa, of Camden, NJ, used a lethal left hook to the body to knock out Tyrone Luckey, of Middletown, NJ, in the second round.
