Former unified heavyweight world champion Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. and top contender Luis “King Kong” Ortiz kicked off fight week events Wednesday with an open to the public media workout at Placita Olvera in Los Angeles as they prepare to square off in the FOX Sports PBC Pay-Per-View main event this Sunday from Arena.

Andy Ruiz: “If this ends in a knockout it ends in a knockout. My only goal is to be victorious. I’m in shape to go 12 hard rounds. We’re going to go in there and leave it all in the ring.”

Luis Ortiz: “You’re going to see a war on Sunday night…I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, this fight is not going the distance.”

  • Ruiz has alot to prove against the alleged 50+year Ortiz. this could be Ruiz’s second quality win on his resume…

    • Right, by waiting until Ortiz jr. is in the twilight of his career. Ortiz just went tooth and nail against Charles Martin and looked old. Thats the only reason Team Ruiz took the fight now. They could have been fought.
      Wilder was the only top heavyweight with the guts to get in with (a younger and dangerous) Ortiz.

  • Damn I really like the fight, but not for $75 bucks!! Cmon FOX!! It’s Labor Day weekend and right before the NFL season kicks off and you can’t do us a solid??!! This would’ve been the perfect ending to my BBQ party on Sunday…DAMN
