Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, FL, 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist, Yan Barthelemy improved  to 12-2, 4KO's and a perfect 4-0 since teaming up with trainer Orlando Cuellar and signing with Joe DeGuardia's Star Boxing, winning a ten round unanimous decision over Francis Ruiz (9-4, 4 KOs) in the opening bout on ESPN's "Friday Night Fights".  The bout, scheduled for ten rounds in the super bantamweight division, was promoted by The Heavyweight Factory in association with Star Boxing.

Barthelemy used acurate punching and a high work rate to dominate Ruiz dropping him once in the third.  Ruiz hung tough but was simply over-matched against the highly skilled Cuban Barthelemy.  In the end Barthelemy won by scores of 100-89, 98-91 and 97-92.
