Former unified heavyweight world champion Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. bounced back from an early knockdown to defeat all-action heavyweight Chris “The Nightmare” Arreola by unanimous decision in the main event of a FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View event Saturday night from Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
"Chris is a veteran and a hard puncher,” said Ruiz. “We did what we had to do tonight. We got the victory that we wanted. I was at my lowest point and now I have to climb the ladder again. I'm thankful for the victory and I'm ready to move on to the next.”
The battle between boxing’s two greatest Mexican-American heavyweights in Ruiz (34-2, 22 KOs) and Arreola (38-7-1, 33 KOs) began with fireworks, as the underdog Arreola landed a powerful overhand right that forced Ruiz to touch the canvas and earned Arreola an early knockdown on the cards. Ruiz was able to recover and survive the second round, taking the knockdown as a wake-up call and prompting him to initiate numerous big exchanges in the third round.
"He got me with a good clean right hand in the second round,” said Ruiz. “I was too overconfident and dropped my hand a bit. Hats off to him. We just kept pushing and pushing. I switched up and started focusing on counterpunching and working the body.”
Both men tasted power punches in a raucous third round that saw Arreola land 14 power punches to Ruiz’s 13, according to CompuBox. Ruiz adjusted as the fight went on, and found success scoring with body shots and combinations punctuated by a punishing sweeping left hook.
Ruiz owned a 106 to 75 advantage in power punches landed and built up his lead on the cards by landing 161 of his 626 punches thrown, to Arreola’s 109 landed and 521 thrown. Arreola appeared to hurt his left arm in round eight, but was able to manage any pain enough to continue throwing bombs until the final bell.
Ruiz punctuated his performance with a strong final round, clinching his victory in the WBA Heavyweight Title Eliminator by the scores of 117-110 and 118-109 twice in the eyes of the judges.
"I respect the judges, but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” said Arreola. “He might have won, but don't tell me I only won two or three rounds. I got hit in the shoulder and it kind of threw it off. It wasn't a big deal though. It's a part of boxing. I didn't take too much punishment. I'm ready to run it back with Andy."
"I felt a little rust and I know other fighters can relate to that,” said Ruiz. “If he wants to run it back, we'll run it back with him."

    Fury was right. Ruiz is better at 265 pounds. He sure rocked the Brit. Boxed his ear drums in as a matter of fact at 263.

    While I will admit that the judges were way too harsh on Arreola, it wasn't realistically that close. I got him winning like 3 rounds at most while watching it. But credit too him for going the distance, I just think he was kind of a swore loser afterwards.

    Ruiz goes the distance with a 40 year old with one arm... and gets dropped early before the injury. Then talking about climbing up the ladder lol,

    no matter who you thought won, there's no way that the scorecards were that wide for either guy. That right there tells you that the outcome of the fight was preordained.

    Chris Arreola was focused this fight. 225 at weight in so his plan was probably to be lighter against the heavier Andy Ruiz, like Joshua was. But Ruiz was diligent with his weight cut to get to 250s but slightly underestimated Arreola's chin which was when Ruiz got caught. But Ruiz adjusted and won with his hand speed and accuracy.

    Ruiz is a good fighter as long as he is fighting a brawler. Fighting a boxer or even worse a boxer puncher he would be in trouble.

    If Andy gets the footwork and head movement down that dude will be a THREAT to all heavyweights.

  • Mr Meme

    Andy looked better faster and throwing alot more except needs to move not get hit as much. Sergio Mora is wrong saying Andy will never be champion again. Arreola was just very ready and also is back to be champion too.

    Ruiz needs to put back the weight he lost, that's where all his power with his speed combined. If he would of been in his old weight in this fight, those punches would of ko'ed Areola for sure. 😵

    I think the fight was more of a draw if not Ruiz winning by the slightest due to him throwing more. Ruiz HAS to step his defense up fore sure!!

    Andy is a straight warrior. He never held his dude even when they thought he was in trouble. He fought back hard and you have to respect that.

    Just going based off these highlights.. which I can tell it didn't tell it all because the fact arreola put him down and was going toe to toe how was the scores that far apart... so I'm guessing there was a lot more In the fight going on
