Ruiz, 17-1, currently rated No. 5 by the NABA, No. 7 by the NABF, and No. 10 by the USBA, extended his latest winning streak to four by capturing the vacant WBA FEDEBOL super bantamweight title via a dominating 12-round unanimous decision over Cristobal Cruz, 25-6-1, at The Orleans in February. All three judges scored it 118-110. The only blemish on his record is a disputed eight-round split decision to undefeated Erik Rodriguez in February 2003. Since that fight, Ruiz, 25, moved his training camp from Palm Springs, CA to Mexico, where he has become a more focused and dangerous fighter. The little dynamo will definitely be a force to be reckoned with in the super bantamweight division.
Estanislao, 15-7-2, from Mexico City, Mexico, captured the Mexican super bantamweight title in 2001, winning a decision over Angel Mata. His reign lasted nearly one year, before losing the title via a majority decision to Jorge Solis. He makes his U.S. debut on the heels of two title fights that went the distance, including a Draw last December against Julio Cesar Cardona for the vacant WBC CABOFE super bantamweight title and a close majority decision loss to Ricardo Castillo, 11-2, for the Mexican super bantamweight championship.
