PBC on FS1 Weights: Santiago 120, Ruiz 119.4

By Jake Donovan

Alexis Santiago and Erik Ruiz made weight for their scheduled 10-round bantamweight bout Tuesday evening at Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Santiago (20-3-1, 8KOs) tipped the scales at 120 lbs., while the granite chinned Ruiz (15-4, 6KOs) weighed 119.4 lbs. Their bout serves as the main event for Tuesday's offering of Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) on Fox Sports 1.

Despite neither boasting a glossy record, both ride a wave of momentum entering their clash.

Santiago has won nine straight, including an eight-round decision over Gustavo Molina last October just outside his Phoenix hometown in Glendale, Arizona. Ruiz - who lives and trains in Oxnard, Calif. - had dropped three of his previous four starts before scoring an upset win over previously unbeaten Roy Tapia last November.

Also on the telecast:

  • Buffalo's Lionell Thompson (16-3, 10KOs) takes on Toledo, OH-based prospect Paul Parker (7-1, 4KOs) in a scheduled eight-round light heavyweight bout;
    Streaking super middleweight prospect Lanell Bellows (14-1-1, 7KOs) - raised in Compton, Calif., but now fighting out of Las Vegas - faces unbeaten Antowyan Aikens (10-0-1, 1KO), fighting out of Atlantic City
