He outclassed Joshua for the unified world titles on June 2019 but lost it in the rematch on the same year. ‘The Destroyer’ has been inactive since then, and 2020 got over without his in-ring appearance.

Meanwhile, Ruiz Jr. has also changed his trainer and is now under Canelo’s team with Eddy Reynoso as the head coach. The new training camp has been different for him since it’s not only about boxing. Ruiz Jr. is also looking after his shape as he reportedly lost some valuable pounds before his much-anticipated return.

Andy Ruiz Jr. – The champion underdog

Fans will know Andy as an elite puncher with great speed. However, ‘The Destroyer’ is doing something right now which he claims to have never done before; he is considering his physical appearance.

Ruiz Jr. said, “It’s hard, man. I have never done this in my whole life. Never lift weights, never had a physical trainer like they are doing… It’s time to execute, time to get it back, time to work hard.”

He is also practising skipping and cardio to sport a new physique. While Ruiz Jr. appeared clunky to many fans in his past performances, a new physique might increase his speed inside the squared circle. Apart from that, his boxing is also at its peak as Eddy Reynoso is one of the finest trainers in the sport.
