Andy Ruiz Jr., the former heavyweight champion, has honed himself with some extra skills in his new stable and appears ready to step into the ring. After losing the title to Anthony Joshua in a rematch, the Mexican has not yet fought.
However, his comeback can be tempting, especially after losing weight seriously. Fans labeled Ruiz Jr. as overweight, but we could see him in a new avatar considering he’s recently physically gotten up.
In the meantime, it still raises some questions about how much weight ‘The Destroyer’ has lost. A picture of Ruiz Jr. clicking a selfie has made the rounds on the internet. He looks extremely tattered with no body fat on his stomach. Hence, it cannot be denied that it has undergone a great change.
However, it can be deceiving due to the bird’s eye view angle. ESPN Ringside posted and contrasted some of its pictures. While a naked body Ruiz Jr. looks very different, another picture shows only minimal changes in his point of view. So it’s safe to say that the camera angle may have played a minor role in the design of Ruiz Jr’s new body in the eyes of the fans.
Even so, some serious efforts have been made in the training of Ruiz Jr and on Team Canelo the Mexican has seen several top notch boxers. Aside from boxing exercises, a complete overhaul has been carried out that can work wonders on the former heavyweight champion’s schedule.
Andy Ruiz Jr. – The new training camp and the next opponent
Be by your side Oscar Valdez, Canelo Alvarez placeholder image, Ryan Garcia, and many more, Ruiz Jr. has regained his championship mindset. He seems hungrier than ever and plans to put together another successful run.
He is reportedly set to return against the former teammate Chris Arreola to revive his position in the running heavyweight division. While he’s still far from yet another championship shot, a win against Arreola may bring him closer to title talks.
So it would be an interesting comeback for ‘The Destroyer’ and he can rightly determine the future of the division by fitting into current history. In addition, any doubts that his body is real or a trick of the camera disappears when he steps into the ring.
