Andy Ruiz defeated Luis Ortiz after 12 tough rounds at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. The Mexican left with the victory after a judge’s decision (114:111, 114:111, 113:112).

Ruiz knocked the ten-year-older Ortiz down three times during the fight, but his powerful punches never managed to knock out the veteran.

The win was the 35th of the 32-year-old Ruiz’s career, 22 of which have come by KO.

The Mexican hadn’t fought in over a year. His last fight was on May 1, 2021 when he defeated Cristóbal Arreola, again after 12 rounds and a decision.

For the 43-year-old King Kong, it was the third loss (33-3-2) in his career and the first after a decision. The previous two came after knockouts, both inflicted by Deontay Wilder.
