Ruiz, the former amateur standout and Mexican Olympic Team member, has quickly ascended the pro ranks in his last three bouts by displaying his speed and explosiveness in early knockouts of Manueal Quezada (28-9), Tor Hamer (21-2) and previously undefeated prospect Joe Hanks (21-0).

Ruiz is currently ranked #2 in the world in the WBO and #11 in the world in the WBC. Aguilera, gained world class recognition in 2009 when he knocked out former WBC Heavyweight Champion Oleg Maskaev in the first round and has since fought a Who’s Who of Heavyweight talent including Tomasz Adamek, Antonio Tarver, Chris Arreola, Samuel Peter, and Dominic Breazeale.

An enticing co-main event will feature undefeated San Antonio prospect Ivan "Bam Bam" Najera (13-0, 8KOs) versus former #1 ranked amateur, Stan "The Man" Martyniouk (13-1, 2KOs).
