The Heavyweight “Destroyer” Andy Ruiz Jr. connected with Power Mornings host Letty just ahead of his upcoming fight against Luis “King Kong” Ortiz at LA’s Crypto Arena.
While much of Ruiz’s success in the ring is a testament to his faith and relationships outside of boxing, the Cali native has made history as the first Mexican Heavyweight champion. Citing his rooted faith in a higher power, Ruiz speaks on being inspired not only by his beliefs but also by the late rapper Nipsey Hussle. Ruiz shares with Letty that he was so inspired by Hussle which is why he decided to honor nip by coming out to his original song.
Speaking on the upcoming fight against Luis Ortiz, Ruiz confidently explains why the fight will not last the entire 12 rounds but he’s fully prepared for the long haul.
Andy Ruiz goes on to talk about keeping his family active and healthy, how church helped him manifest a huge win, and much more.
