Was knocked down in the second half, but Andy Ruiz returned strongly to win Chris Arreola after 12 innings by scoring in the match on 2/5.
This is the first time Andy Ruiz took the throne after losing to Anthony Joshua and losing four heavyweight championship titles in December 2019. The Mexican-American puncher lost 12 kilograms to prepare the best for a glove screen in California.
But Ruiz didn’t start well. He fell on his knees to the floor in the second half after a heavy right jab from the opponent. In the next half, Arreola continued to strike another blow, causing Ruiz to be stunned in the 20th second, but could not take advantage of the opportunity to knock-out the opponent.
Ruiz played better since the fourth half, while Arreola showed signs of exhaustion after the sixth half. The shoulder injury also greatly affects the performance of the 40-year-old puncher. Ruiz, despite being swollen in her left eye, owned the ring until the bell rang to end the 12th half.
This match, Ruiz overwhelmed with 161 correct shots, while Arreola had only 109 shots. The former heavyweight champion, therefore, won with a consensus score from the assessors, 117-110, 118-109, 118-109.
“Arreola is an experienced fighter and possesses powerful punches. I did what I had to do and won as I was aiming for. I am very grateful for this victory and ready for the next battle.” , Ruiz said after the game.
He also admitted a bad start: “He took advantage of the opportunity and had a neat jab in the second half. I was too confident at the time when lowering my hands a bit low. There, I changed, focused more on counter-attacks, and focused on his body. I performed badly after a long time, but I think other boxers understand this too. “
Meanwhile, Arreola was angry at the referee’s decision. He complained: “I always respect the referee, but they are terrible today. Ruiz won? Okay. But don’t say I only won in two or three rounds.”
