I wanna see benavidez be impressive...... i also wanna see him move up .he seems to lose his legs after 6 in his debut in a 8 round bout. trouble from making weight ?????Comment by nycsmooth on 11-02-2012
Ruiz Jr has some very fast hands w/ an always over-wt body...he needs to shed about 15# @ least...Mccall best come ready as Ruiz is there, good digs 2 the body...Comment by JeromyM on 11-02-2012
pretty decent card looking forward to it. Ruiz has some fast hands...but he needs to get his body into shape. This will be by far his toughest test. I also like watching Kim.Comment by kokingbill on 11-02-2012
