Andy Ruiz is coming along impressively with his weight loss at the moment ahead of Chris Arreola on May 1st.
While many expect Ruiz to flatten Arrerola quickly, that said, it will be entertaining for as long as it lasts as styles make fights.
Arrerola doesn’t take a backwards step and neither does Ruiz.
In the run-up to the fight, Ruiz has been in strong company with fellow Mexican fighters such as Canelo Alvarez and Ryan Garcia.
Indeed, pound for pound number one Canelo has been keen to pass on advice and words of wisdom as shown here:

Ruiz will need to work on this side of his game a lot of to compete for a title again.
Focus on himself and putting energy into himself will be key.
Alvarez for his part is already back in action in early May himself, too, following a straight forward win over a mandatory contender at the start of the year.
He takes on Billy Joe Saunders next up.
