After a week of intense training in Nicaraguan lands, the current Central American and Caribbean champion, Josec “Escorpión” Ruiz, returned, who on the 29th will defend the belt against Colombian Jelier Pacheco, whom the Honduran defeated to win the title.
“The training was hard but positive, because the sparring was with the three best featherweights in Nicaragua, but that helped me a lot, because they are fighters who manage both guards,” said Ruiz.
For “Scorpion” having exchanged blows with boxers with left and right profiles is beneficial, “that was the biggest problem I had last time with Pacheco, that he changed my guard, but now he will not surprise me with that.”
With the “nicas” with whom the catracho fighter trained were Jimmy Aburto, Eliezer Lanza and Yamil Acevedo, all three are considered the best featherweights in their country.
On the other hand, the president of the Honduran Boxing Federation (FEHDEBOX), Godofredo Fajardo, confirmed that the trip to Nicaragua was fruitful, because “Escorpión” Ruiz performed excellent sparring.
“There, both Josec Ruiz and Fernando -Araña- Álvarez, had good presentations, we know that these two exponents will fight the next 29 at the Nacional de Ingenieros Coliseum.”
Likewise, Fajardo reported that if Josec makes his first defense, in January he would travel to Mexico to a rigorous training base for 10 days, “this according to Fajardo, because in February he would make his second defense of the title in Venezuela.
“The World Boxing Association (WBA) has already told us that Scorpion” Ruiz wins his first defense, the second would be in Venezuela, although we still do not know the name of the opponent. “
