Sampson Boxing Renews Co-Promotional Agreement with Super Bantamweight Slugger Hugo ‘Cuatito’ Ruiz
Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing and Oswaldo Kuchle of Promociones Del Pueblo proudly announce the renewal of former interim WBA World bantamweight and current WBC #2-rated super bantamweight contender, Hugo “Cuatito” Ruiz (35-2, 31 KOs) of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico’s co-promotional contract.
28-year-old Ruiz, trained by his father, Heriberto Ruiz and twin brothers, Edel and Heriberto Jr (both former high-level fighters), was last seen demolishing Mexican veteran Carlos Medellin in one round last November.
“I am very happy that Hugo Ruiz has decided to stay loyal to us and I expect he will be world champion in his new division very soon,” said Sampson Lewkowicz. “He is a very exciting fighter with the power to make every fight exciting.”
Ruiz’ only loss in the last eight years was a very debatable split decision to Japan’s Koki Kameda in a WBA Unification fight in Osaka, Japan, in December 2012. Ruiz made four successful defenses of his interim championship before the Kameda controversy.
Impressively, Ruiz carries an 84% KO ratio, boxing at the international level.
