THE STORY:

Billy 'Stone Hands' Cruz; energetic, focused and highly driven. His credo, 'I think I can, so I will', shows his belief in the power of the mind and has helped him create the positivity and clear vision that's enabled him to triumph in life.

Born and raised in Maryland, Cruz's father raised him to work hard and play hard all while giving everyone the respect they deserved. And Billy certainly works hard, having held the same job for three decades. But his greatest achievement is his family; a 34 year marriage to his lovely wife, which begat a wonderful family of three children as well as three beautiful grandchildren.

As for the 'Stone Hands' moniker? That epitomizes his identity as a pugilist; a power puncher. To call him a one trick pony would be a mistake though. To master any aspect of boxing is to know them all. In order to get a good jab in or sting like a bee, in the way his boxing hero Muhammed Ali did, you need to know how to get into the position to do so. Billy's impressive prowess for the sweet science and focus in the ring allow him to do just that.

While Ali is his boxing idol, he's perhaps more inspired by athletes who've overcome disability, 'they show us that anything is possible when we try'.

Giving back is something Cruz finds imperative as well since everybody, including himself, may need a little help someday. He supports various causes, the ones most important to him are; the Combined Federal Campaign and the Catholic Church.
