Ruiz reminds me of what the Oakland Raiders owner used to say "just win, baby"--and win he did. Ruiz is the classiest heavyweight of all time. Bar none--and one of the classiest boxers of all time to be honest.
Man, I wish the world for this beautiful kid! Hope he's doing well!
Ah many, Toney is always talking smack. It didn't get to Ruiz, besides he had Stone to talk **** for him, and Stone went off as always ("Toney the phony!") A classic press conference for sure.

Ruiz was a class act, and honestly his complete style overhaul (no clenching!) towards the end of his career revealed a solid boxer. I mean, did he and Haye clench at all?

Anyway, I respect anyone that becomes the (real) heavyweight champion of the world, and John was indeed the champ.
