Former Mexican champion Andy Ruiz fulfilled the last requirement before entering the ring this Sunday at the Crypto Arena in Los Angeles.

The cachanilla from the beginning assured that his goal was to make the same weight as in the first against Anthony Joshua, 268 pounds. He wasn’t too heavy, not too light, just comfortable and he stopped the scales just 500 grams above his goal.

At 122 kilos, he declared himself ready to face Cuban Luis Ortiz in the main event that will feature the participation of Pitbull Cruz and also the return of Abner Mares.

After losing about 25 kilos for his last confrontation, against Chris Arreola, Ruiz realized that this was not his goal, because in the training camp they were more focused on losing weight than practicing .

“I didn’t feel good losing so much. For someone like Luis Ortiz, I have to be strong, fast and explosive, so weight is no longer my priority,” said Andy Ruiz, who even changed his work team to be able to align his aspirations.

Unlike Ruiz, Cuban Ortiz weighed in at 111 kilograms (245.5 pounds) before stepping into the ring.

In a fight that can take the night, Mexican Isaac Cruz will face his compatriot Eduardo Ramírez in a World Cup qualifying duel in lightweight. The Pitbull will arrive with a big step to face the one who could be, after Gervonta Davis, the toughest rival so far in his career.

Both Cruz and Ramírez had no problem making weight. Cruz stopped the Field at 135 while Zurdito gave 134.5.
