Andrew Ruiz was very close to Saul Canelo Alvarezboth trained at a gym in San Diego under orders Eddie Reynososo that both boxers know each other well, know their strengths and weaknesses.
The Destroyer has apparently already left the Canelo team, although he has not officially announced this, he is already training with Alfredo Osuna at the new gym that Ruiz owns.
Even away from Canelo, Andy knows his compatriot’s abilities, and while he came out of a painful loss to Dimitri Bivol, Ruiz doesn’t see who can beat Alvarez at his weight.
Andy gave his prediction for the fight between Canelo and Golovkin
“I think Canelo beat GGG twice and I think he’s going to beat him a third time.. I don’t see anyone who can beat Canelo at his weight. He is undefeated at 168 pounds. I know people say that Golovkin is very good, that he will be the best, but he is always focused, strong, trains hard”, he told YouTube channel fighthype.com.
In the first two fights between Alvarez and Golovkin there was a lot of controversy, the first was a draw, and the second the Mexican won by a small margin.
Ruiz thinks Canelo could pretend to be mad at Golovkin to promote fight
“Canelo” is always very humble, respectful, but I don’t know, maybe Gennady said something that made him very angry. Or it could have been part of a show promoting the fight. He came from a loss, but many people don’t understand why he lost, he faced someone big, he took a risk. For me, he did not lose, he was just looking for something and did not get it,” he concluded.
On September 4, Andy Ruiz will face Cuban Luis “King Kong” Ortiz. at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California in a 12-round bout.
