WBC: Wilder vs Ruiz Would Be Perhap The Most Interesting Non-Title Heavyweight Fight…As Both Promoters Finalize On A Deal

A few weeks ago, promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions revealed that he would like to stage a big event in Mexico City with Ruiz in the headline bout.

 

 

Both Ruiz and Wilder are promoted by Premier Boxing Champions – and they did express interest in facing each other.

 

 

Ruiz would lose his unified crown back to Anthony Joshua in their 2019 rematch. And Wilder would lose his last two fights, by knockout, to Tyson Fury.

 

 

“[That fight] would be wonderful, and it is consistent with what the plans are for Mexico City [to secure big boxing events],” said Sulaiman. “We have been looking to return a great event to our capital. There have always been great fights [in Mexico City], but we have had many years without having a great event in Mexico City and yes indeed, Andy Ruiz, [a fight against Wilder] would be wonderful.

 

 

“The Wilder-Ruiz fight is perhaps the most interesting non-title fight right now [at heavyweight]. Wilder is an explosive boxer, Andy Ruiz is a Mexican fighter, having achieved one of the great upsets in the history of heavyweight boxing and the great traction he has with Mexican fans is great, I would love to see him here in Mexico.”

 

 

Ruiz returned to the ring in May. He had to overcome a knockdown and some tough early moments to win a tough decision over Chris Arreola. And Wilder was in action back in November, in what many feel was the ‘Fight of The Year’ in his knockout loss in eleven rounds to Fury.
