I don't like John Ruiz, but he was rugged, strong, and his own type of skilled. Don't like what he's doing to ya? Stop him.
Yea, Ruiz was very effective with the tools he had.

Don't fall in. Use a jab. Learn how to shed. Place your shoulder by his chin and hop up and down. Push for separation, and place shots. Use your head!

Guys only want an ugly inside fight if they think they win. Make it just as uncomfy for them as you, and the match cleans up. We're in agreement.
Or a favourite of Holyfield, rub your head in their face.

Punching a guy so hard that he reconsidered professions was a favorite of mine.

To quote one of my first opponents, in the clinch, "What the hell am I doing here?"

Not exactly wrestling, but Holyfield worked a lot of leverage for pushing Tyson around in clinches in training for those two fights. He would go rounds every day with strong sparring partners to learn how to get leverage and the proper footwork to move Tyson backwards when they tied up.

Watch the fights and you can see a lot of it in action -- making Iron Mike back up was not an easy thing, and it was a key, psychologically, in those fights.
