The event, which will be promoted by Pound for Pound Promotions, will be headlined by New Brunswick, NJ's Jorge Diaz (14-0, 9 KO) facing former world title challenger Emmanuel Lucero (24-5-1, 14 KO) of Scranton, PA in a ten round featherweight bout.
Bryan, who like Cruz is 24 years old, is a two-time National Golden Gloves champion (2004, 2005). Bryan is out to make a statement following his controversial loss to Vincent Arroyo in April.
"I'm coming in to steal the show," says Bryan. "I have a point to make after my last fight in Atlantic City and the only way to make it is by taking tough fights. Cruz is a very good fighter, and that will only bring out the best in me."
