After dropping Robert Helenius with a knock-your-socks-off win, Ruiz proves yet again he’s not one to sleep on. Expected? Sure. But does that make his power-packed victory any less mind-blowing? No way.
Helenius was a sparring partner, a stepping stone, and Ruiz had his game sussed out. The knockout? Picture perfect. A show of Ruiz’s sweat-it-out prep and laser focus. “We’re right here trying to stay busy, we’re right here trying to stay focused,” shared Ruiz, laying bare his commitment to the sweet science.
Ruiz vs. Wilder
If you’re a boxing fan, you’re probably daydreaming about a possible knock-your-socks-off face-off: Ruiz vs. Deontay Wilder. Eddie Hearn, has already placed his bets on Ruiz. But what’s Ruiz’s two cents on this? Speaking to Boxing Social, Ruiz said:
“I feel I could take a punch. I’m not saying that he doesn’t hit hard or nothing, but just like how Eddie Hearn was saying, ‘Hey, I’m gonna get in, I’m gonna throw my combinations, I’m gonna be fast, explosive’,” he said. His confidence says it all about the game plan he’s got cooking for such a show-down.
Deontay Wilder, famous for his extreme KO power, could be one heck of a hurdle. Still, Ruiz isn’t shaking in his boots. “Damn well yeah, it’s hard,” he accepts, giving a hat tip to Wilder’s punches. Then comes the zinger: Ruiz’s unwavering faith in his own power.
For Ruiz, a fight with Wilder is a chance to flash his speed, his lightning-fast combos, and explosive strength. His strategy? A right-hand thunderbolt to Wilder’s temple, a move he bets will send Wilder biting the dust.
