Walter Crucce (born 1974-09-05 in Las Flores, Buenos Aires) is a retired male boxer from Argentina, who won the gold medal in the men's light-welterweight (– 63.5 kg) category at the 1995 Pan American Games in Mar del Plata. In the final he defeated Puerto Rico's Luis Deines Pérez. Crucce made his professional debut on 1995-07-08 defeating Sandro Ramon Sosa on knock-out. For the press and much of the general public, Crucce was considered in the 90's as the future of Argentine boxing. It was a great puncher and in his first 22 fights, ten were won in the first round. Over time his career was devaluing by weight problems. His last fight was on 2012/08/28, when he retired in the 6th round against Brazilian boxer Junior Jackson, for the WBO Latino title in the light heavyweight category.
