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...

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.
