Photos: Andy Ruiz Makes PBC Debut, Batters Dimitrenko

Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California - The co-main event featured heavyweight contender and Southern California fan-favorite Andy "The Destroyer" Ruiz Jr. (32-1, 21 KOs) scoring a TKO victory over Alexander Dimitrenko (41-5, 26 KOs) after five rounds of action in their heavyweight showdown.  (photos by Fox Sports, Leo Wilson, Sean Ham).

Ruiz flashed the exceptional hand speed that has defined his career, landing hard combinations to the head and body of the taller Dimitrenko. Ruiz stalked Dimitrenko, controlling the center of the ring and picking his spots to unload.

Dimitrenko tried to use his jab to keep Ruiz at bay and was able to cause a welt under Ruiz's right eye as the early rounds went on. It was not enough to keep Ruiz from coming forward and in round five he began to pile up the punishment, punctuated with hard right hooks that snapped Dimitrenko's head back.

After the fifth round, and on the advice of Dimitrenko's corner, referee Ray Corona stopped the bout before round six could commence. Ruiz was comfortably ahead on all three scorecards and set his sights on another top heavyweight contender for his possible next opponent.

Considering how inactive Ruiz has been recently, you'd think he would have even bothered to try and get in shape in that time. Goes to show how he isn't taking his career seriously.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G;19682481]Ruiz Jr. was over 260 for this fight, i hope he gets down to 230-235 pounds i think he would be more effective. Of course he would still be chubby but im sure he always will.[/QUOTE] I'm on the fence…

They can polish this thing up to be a respectable show. The Kowanaki fight, you know. These two are made for each other, I can't see it going deep, and the thought of all that meat hitting the canvas. Tucco…

Make a real run for a title. You have what can’t be taught one of the fastest hands in division in combo. Get in real shape no reason to be so overweight you don’t have to be ripped. Improve stamina.
