DAI GARDINER, the manager of the World Boxing Organisation featherweight champion Steve Robinson, has still to decide whether the boxer will fight Freddy Cruz, of the Dominican Republic, in Cardiff next month. 'He is a dangerous fighter although I think we can handle him,' Gardiner said. 'This is a first voluntary defence by my fighter and I want an update on Cruz before giving a final decision.'
