of Mexicali has been working on
"...hand, head movement and foot
speed" to get wired in for his fight
against Carl Davis at the Hard Rock
in Las Vegas on Saturday, June 8.
Ruiz, 18-0, is working with chief trainer
Big Jeff Grmoja at the Bones Adams
Gym in Las Vegas. Ruiz says he has

Big Jeff said.

and develop a style best suited for
