Report: Damon Gonzalez/Latinbox Sports
Las Vegas, NV. – Featherweight Hugo Ruiz (38-4, 31 KOs) had a dominating performance against Alberto Guevara (27-4, 12 KOs), earning a ten-round unanimous decision victory tonight at the MGM Grand Garden Area.
Guevara punched a lot in the fight keeping up with Ruiz who controlled the tempo throughout the contest. Judges official scores of 99-90, 99-90, and 100-89.
“I trained for the southpaw and then I had to fight a right hander at the last minute. The other guy was a puncher and this guy is a boxer. It made it difficult for me to fight him because it wasn’t what I trained for. “It was very difficult when there is one fighter that you are prepared to fight in the ring and it doesn’t turn out that way. It was supposed to be a title fight. I was so disappointed and my mind wasn’t totally in it.” @mannypacquiao vs. @adrienbroner 2019 #PacBroner
