Humberto Soto Gets TKO Win in Two, Ponders Retirement

By Miguel Rivera

Gimnasio Cuauhtémoc de la Delegación Miguel Hidalgo in Mexico City - former three division world champion Humberto 'Zorrita Soto (66-9-2, 36 KOs) stopped late replacement Daniel Ruiz (34-10-2, 24 KOs) in two rounds, after Ruiz was unable to continue due to a wrist injury.

Soto snapped more than a year of inactivity, with his last fight being a decision loss to Antonio Orozco last September at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Soto is still looking for a very big fight and he's never had issues with getting on a plane to step on the big stage in Mexico and the United States, and the 36-year-old veteran is hoping to secure either a big name of a shot at a world championship.

Soto looked good for as long as the fight lasted - until Ruiz claimed a left wrist injury and the local commission called the fight at 2:08 of the round, which gave Soto a TKO win.

"I know I can do this, and to get this done I need to work hard," said Soto. "I am still in a good moment in my career and I can do it."

Soto admits that he's considering the possibility of retiring, with a final fight to take place in December on home soil.

His manager however, Antonio Lozada, says the boxer is still looking for a major fight in the United States.
