Following on from our post two days ago about former heavyweight world champion Andy Ruiz Jr, his new trainer Eddy Reynoso was impressed with him after their first day together.
“The most important thing in a first training session is the boy’s willingness to start, Andy Ruiz brings a lot of willingness, he wants to continue his career at the level he is at, he’s at an important level, he wants to keep learning,” Reynoso said.
“We have a good team with Canelo (Alvarez), (Oscar) Valdez, Ryan (García), (Luis) Nery, fighters who are in their moment, and that can help him to push him more to what he wants to achieve in his career.
“We had a good day. We trained for an hour and a half, he did warm-up movements, shadow boxing, we practiced some combinations, we practiced what he wants to work on, what he likes, I think we are going to do good, he adapts quite a bit to the boxing that I like, counter-attack boxing, waist movement, to be counterattacking, feinting, there are many things that I can be contributing and he has the disposition. We are going to make a good team, with the disposition that he brings and with the fighters on the team we can do good things.”
Great start, we hope he keeps it up as the personable Ruiz Jr. will be a welcome addition back in the heavyweight top ten.
