Toney Whips Ruiz For WBA Title!

30.04.05 - By Jim Amato: FINALLY...The reign of John Ruiz has ended. A large, 233 pound former middleweight champion outboxed and outslugged an always game John Ruiz to take a unanimous twelve round decision. The scoring was 116-111, 116-111 and 115-112. I gave Ruiz rounds three, four and six but there were a couple of other close rounds. Ruiz was down in the seventh but a replay showed that James stepped on his foot..

It still went as a 10-8 round for Toney. It really did not matter in the end. Ruiz was outclassed. Toney was the superior boxer and that is why he won. Still, this was no walk in the park for Toney. Although he won by a comfortable margin, he got roughed up by Ruiz in there.
