Andy Ruiz Blasts Out Josh Gormley in Three Rounds

In the main event of Salita Promotions' Detroit Brawl 3 - WBO #5-, IBF #5-, and WBC #7-rated and current NABF heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr. (28-0, 19KOs) blasted out Josh Gormley (22-5, 21KOs) in three rounds at the Masonic Temple in Downtown Detroit. Gormley had been down three times.

26-year-old Ruiz, from Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, made four successful defenses of his NABF Championship.

Before that, he held the WBO Inter-Continental Heavyweight Championship and made an additional three successful defenses before relinquishing. In his last in-ring appearance, he stopped former world title challenger Ray Austin in the fourth round on May 14 in Studio City, California.


Ruiz will now return on September 10th against Franklin Lawrence at the Tachi Palace Hotel & Casino in Lemoore, California.
Gormley, who billed himself as a distant relative of former champ Jack Dempsey, trains with Dino Spencer and Luis "Chiro" Perez at the 5th St. Gym in Miami, Florida.

He was on a three-fight KO streak since coming back from a 16-year layoff in late 2015. Despite having had no amateur boxing career, Gormley fought his way to up-and-comer status in the late 90s and was a fan favorite. He also worked with former champion Lennox Lewis as a sparring partner. Gormley is a former California State Wrestling Champion and MMA fighter and the older brother of UFC fighter Chase Gormley.
