Chavez Jr Alleges Elbow, Dirty Blows Caused Him To QuitLa Cartita --- World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman was sympathetic to Ruiz' new found fame leading to his lack of training for his long anticipated Joshua rematch. While Ruiz shocked the boxing world in June by taking the WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO world titles from Anthony Joshua through a TKO, he failed to prepare adequately for their December rematch. Despite this, Ruiz maintains a top-5 contender ranking due to the lack of a decisive victory from the cagey Anthony Joshua during their December bout. This means that the WBC considers Ruiz eligible to fight Deontay Wilder even before Joshua.

Repeatedly, we see Mexican boxers with an either unconventional routine, appearance or sheer willpower defeat much higher-rated boxers. They deliver surprising upsets, which are almost becoming routine, predictable, if the dependent variable is the boxing's native culture, style.
In the case of Ruiz, the new Heavy-Weight champ from Imperial Valley, California defeated an almost perfect boxer, Anthony Joshua, in front of thousands of English people who had flown into the Madison Square Garden expecting to see an easy fight.
