Ruiz could love this fight. I don't think Ruiz is a hungry fighter. Ortiz is good, and he is essentially fighting to keep his career going. Ortiz didn't look great against didn't look great against Charles Martin, but Martin was actually fighting very well that fight, and Ortiz still beat him, and I don't know it Luis is on the slide or not. Ruiz blamed weight loss on his poor performance against Chris Arreola. To me, this is a pick-em fight, but I'm going with Ortiz and the upset.

Ruiz is a definite underachiever. When I first saw him, he was more of a slob, but his combination punching was excellent. He gets more power into his shots now, but his combos haven't been there since his win against AJ. There is no reason he can't come in between 250-255 and be more mobile and effective. He also has been very inactive, and this hurts a fat guy like him.
