No - what's not to be taken seriously are fans who ignore the BLATANT and repeated cheating that Ruiz engaged in from the moment King manuevered him into contention. Excessive holding is illegal, and faking low blows is just out and out DISGRACEFUL.
Fans who give credibility to this blatant cheater are sanctioning the corruption of the sport by manipulators like Don King. Without King, Ruiz would have been lucky to win a regional belt, let alone a world title. That some fans applaud this sort of chicanery is, frankly, sickening.
