Andy Ruiz to fight Chris Arreola on April 24!

Since losing to Anthony Joshua, Andy Ruiz hasn’t been back in the cage. However, it seems like the former unified heavyweight champion is making his grand comeback this 2021! In detail, his rival for this big fight will be Chris Arreola. Up to now, Ruiz had quite a journey in the promotion. His most famous moment was probably when he landed one of the biggest upsets in sports history when going against Joshua. We could say it was second to the situation where Mike Tyson lost to Buster Douglas.

During their match, Joshua managed to knock out Ruiz first. However, the former champ successfully survived his opponent’s barrage of punch and even fought back with a counter punch. When he hit Joshua’s ear area, it made him lost balance. After that, it was easy for Ruiz to pick his shot and put Joshua to sleep. The clash ended when the referee had to step in and put a stop to it. Soon after, Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz were heading for a rematch.

This time, Ruiz was at a disadvantage due to his weight gain. Meanwhile, his rival came into the fight with a new game plan. With a longer reach and height, Joshua became the winner, even without any takedown. After that, Destroyer fired his team and joined Canelo’s crew (headed by Eddy Reynoso). One of the reasons for such a decision was when his old coaches blamed Ruiz’s loss on him not training for the fight. Now that he’s in Reynoso’s team, things are changing for the better. 

Upcoming plan

Eddy Reynoso is famous for many great boxers training under him like Canelo, Ryan Garcia, and Oscar Valdez. If Ruiz tries to act lazy or dictate his training, Reynoso could drop him. Now that the champ is back on track, it would be exciting to see him going against Arreola!
