Mike “El Cangri” Ruiz Drops Decision to Boyd Melson


“On Friday night, for the second time this year, DiBella Entertainment staged its popular Broadway Boxing series north to the suburbs of Westchester County with an exciting eight-bout card, in front of a raucous sold-out crowd at the beautiful Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, NY. Headlining the card, West Point graduate Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson (14-1-1, 3 KOs), 153½, White Plains, NY, scored a one-sided unanimous decision over the always-game Mike Ruiz (17-8, 9 KOs), 153¾, Glenbrook, NY, in a 10-round super welterweight contest.

Ending a 15-month layoff that was spent healing from a right arm injury suffered in his previous bout and a subsequent torn rotator cuff incurred during training, Melson showed no ill effects outboxing Ruiz in an impressive showing. Throughout, Melson displayed tremendous accuracy, focusing on his straighter punches, which were also aided by Ruiz’ lack of head movement. Beating Ruiz to the punch, Melson’s speed was causing his adversary problems, not letting him find a rhythm. Ruiz, who himself was coming off of a year-and-a-half layoff, tried to make it a rough fight in close, having his best moments in round four as the action intensified. Melson, however, kept pumping his jab to establish a distance as much as he could. In the sixth, Melson floored Ruiz and continued to land his straight right well in the following frame. Maintaining control over the closing rounds, Melson went on to win a unanimous decision on scores of 100-89, 99-90, and 98-91. With the victory, Melson, who leads the “Fight To Walk” boxing team and donates almost his entire purse to the JustaDollarPlease organization, which specializes in stem cell research, picked up the WBC USNBC super welterweight title.”-
