Ruiz is rightly criticised for his questionable tactics, gift decisions and unsportsmanlike behaviour.

Even factoring these elements in, he still has a resume that cannot be entirely dismissed.

Ah, we think alike friend.

Ruiz is among he most exciting heavyweight fighters of all time.

I had the great honour of watching this man train - he would spend hours squeezing heavybags to work on his clinching.

HOWEVER he had a darkside. I remember sitting outside a diner with this dude just chilling, then out of nowhere he walked across the street to this pet shop, he came back with a budgee and then crushed it in his bare hands.

Just for kicks! He said.

Favourite memory: His half - what the ****, half - where am I? face after he got knocked into another reality by David Tua in like 4 seconds.

Holyfield was 40, so the boxing gods hands were tied.

And they clearly stopped the Tua fight too early. Stoney had Ruiz playing possum, but John was about to strike back as soon as David got to complacent.
