Jack Bateson vs. Diego Alberto Ruiz
Leeds United FC Banqueting Suite, Elland Road, Leeds, England – 18 June 2022
Jack Bateson’s opponent Diego Alberto Ruiz required a second attempt to make weight ahead of their super bantamweight showdown in Leeds.
Local hero Bateson tipped the scales just under the limit, at 121lbs, but Argentina’s Ruiz initially came in four ounces over.

Bateson acknowledges this fight is likely to be the toughest of his professional career but knows a win in front of his home fans will open the doors to a top 15 ranking with the WBA.
