As intimidating as he is inside the squared circle, Ruiz Jr. is equally humble outside the sport. He loves giving it back to the sport and his country Mexico in any way possible. Moreover, he wishes to continue the same for a long time.

He said, “Yes, that’s what I want to do. I want to get fighters from Mexico because there’s a lot of promoters here that don’t really do things right. Because the fighters over here don’t speak English and all that. So I want to help the fighters out.
