Prominent British coach Peter Fury believes former heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz’s performance against veteran Chris Arreola was influenced by an inappropriate weight-lifting process. Ruiz himself said that due to the depression that gripped him after the defeat in the rematch with Anthony Joshua, he had eaten up to 140 kilograms, but he went down to the fight with Arreola with a weight of 116.1 kg.
According to Fury, the grueling weight race affected Ruiz’s ability to take a punch.
“Ruiz wasn’t chasing the weights right, he stopped punching because of the wrong weight-lifting process. And it seems that he is still in the same shape, just got lighter, which led to problems with the holder. The heavyweight is different from other weight classes. categories. Just talking about it, “wrote Peter Fury on his Twitter page.
Recall that Ruiz defeated Arreola by unanimous decision, having been knocked down during the fight.
