Andy Ruiz Jr. a.k.a ‘The Destroyer’ returned to action after 17 long months. Though he failed to secure an overwhelming victory against Chris Arreola, Andy displayed immense strength and class after surviving an early knockdown.
Ruiz relied on his speed, activity, and sharper combinations to outwork Arreola. But unfortunately in the eyes of boxing fans, Andy is no longer ‘The Destroyer.’ According to Andy Ruiz Sr., his son’s performance took a dip because of his weight loss.
He said, “So in his next fight, he’ll be 255, feeling better and stronger. No, you can see the fight again, and you can see all the punches that Andy landed on Chris Arreola. I was a little worried, but when he knocked Andy down. He was not hurt like when Anthony Joshua knocked Andy down.
Ruiz Sr. expressed his thoughts when asked about the ideal weight for Andy. He said, “255. He lost 40 lbs that he lost. So he adjusted to the weight right now, and he hits hard at 255. This match was the stepping stone for Ruiz to return to the top of the division.
Andy Ruiz Jr. is ready to take on Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz
After his recent performance, fans believe he has no business taking on opponents like Joshua, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, or Dillian Whyte. His recent fall from grace as an elite heavyweight fighter must have hit hard for the former champ.
Ruiz Sr. in an interview with FightHub said, “He needs it for his career. He has a lot of experience, Arreola. He will get his titles back, and he will beat Wilder, and Ortiz, this fight, two more fights. That way he can set up in the weight. He’s going to beat everyone.”
While many think he would likely take on a mediocre boxer for his next match. But if he takes on such opponents, it certainly would mark Andy’s intention of proving himself as the best.
