Two fighters, who have experienced their share of glory, come together for a fight to fuel the sensation. The matchup has caused speculation and shame to their reputations, a mutual make or break. But who has the advantage in this battle of pride?
Kingpin Johnson is famed for his furious jab, a punch that would have won him the world title should it have landed back in 2009. Ruiz on the other hand, is most famous for losing to Joseph Parker as his style is slow moving with a fast hand. Maybe a sound technique at amateur level but when facing a fighter with a decent defense and lightning fists, it is a completely different story.
The last two years
After leaving the sport for two years, following his first defeat, it’s not skill Ruiz has gained. He has clearly spent the time on taking a break from training, apparent from his skill and recent addition of five pounds. Although his last match was an instant knockout it was against a relatively unknown has been on a fluke hit. It will be interesting to see how he goes when faced with a legitimate opponent.
