Carlos Ruiz Gets Back To His Winnings Ways With TKO

By Francisco Salazar

Carlos Ruiz broke a three-fight winless streak Friday night, stopping Luis Guzman in the second round late Wednesday night at the Fronton Mexico in Mexico City.

Ruiz (16-4-2, 6 knockouts) opened a cut over the left eye of Guzman. The cut was severe enough blood began gushing out, making it difficult for Guzman to see out of his eye.

The bout was stopped at 31 seconds of round two on the recommendation of the ringside physician.

Guzman drops to 1-1, 1 KO.


Ruiz, who was ranked as high as number six by the WBO as a junior lightweight in 2016, is now campaigning at 126 pounds. The Mexico City resident has recently fought on a handful of Boxeo Telemundo telecasts.

The Ruiz-Guzman fight headlined a ‘Reto Nacional Punos de Oro 2018’ card.

Lightweight Diego Contreras won a hard-fought six round unanimous decision over Omar Solano (8-3, 2 KOs). Scores were 57-56, 57-56, and 57-55 for Contreras, who improves to 8-1, 4 KOs.

Bantamweight Jorge Rivera (8-0-1, 2 KOs) outboxed Hector Garcia over six rounds, winning a unanimous decision. Scores were 60-54, 59-55, and 58-56 for Rivera. Garcia drops to 2-2, 1 KO.

In welterweight action, Diego Jimenez (1-2, 1 KO) knocked out Vladimir Sandoval, who was making his pro debut, at 1:54 of the second round.
