Luis Ortiz vs Andy Ruiz Jr. Prediction

For one, he did not do a lick of training for the biggest rematch of his existence, subsequently losing the title as fast as he had won it. Another red flag that has seemingly plagued Ruiz as of late is his inability to stabilize his weight/ stick with a proper training camp.

It's no secret that his main coach and trainer Eddie Reynoso publicly lambasted Andy for his poor work ethic, stating he does not want to be at the gym for long periods of time. If that's not blatant foreshadowing for Ruiz's potential suspect performance on Sunday I don't know what is.

He is fighting, however, Luis "King Kong" Ortiz. Although they say he is 43, knowing he is Cuban he is probably knocking on the door of 50. This old man has always been the bridesmaid but never the bride, having an illustrious amateur and professional career but never capturing the heavyweight belt.

A southpaw with some pop in his strikes, Ruiz is going to have to be on his A-game regardless as he tries to outmaneuver the Cuban missile crisis come Sunday afternoon. Even though I am leaning toward the fight to go the distance In a technical affair, ultimately gives me Andy Ruiz's moneyline as he can cover not only the decision victory but the finish as well for the price tag he is exhibiting.
