Andy Ruiz Plans To Attack Joe Hanks From The Start

Mexican heavyweight Andy Ruiz worked for weeks in Las Vegas, mostly at the Bones Adams Gym. He is now in Macau, about to to take on undefeated Joe Hanks in a significant bout on Top Rank's Fists of Gold ll on Saturday at the Venetian Macao CotaiArena.

Ruiz is 19-0, Hanks 21-0.

Ruiz plans to go onto an immediate attack, says chief trainer Big Jeff Gramoja.

"Hanks record of 21-0 is a concern for sure," Gramoja said. "But I've seen Hanks before. We plan to go right in and attack the boxer. That is how Andy trained for this fight - to land our jabs, attack the body, use hand speed and break him down.

"We've worked a long time for this. We are expecting Andy to have a great performance and victory," Gramoja said.

Ruiz vs Hanks will be broadcast exclusively on UniMas Solo Boxeo Tecate Saturday at 11 pm  eastern, 11 pm pacific.

Ruiz could be a real surprise packet - people say heavyweight boxing is dead but there are some great prospects out there and some terrific match-ups

Any athlete who looks like Andy Ruiz Jr is clearly not putting in enough effort in training. People always say "well he's just genetically like that" but that is utter bull****, if you train like an elite athlete, a world…

I think Ruiz can still become a contender with the bunch in the rankings now.
