Undefeated bantamweight prospect Michael Ruiz, Jr. from Fresno, CA, has signed with Goossen Tutor Promotions. Ruiz is scheduled to fight at Tachi Palace in Lemoore, a few short miles from his hometown on Oct. 7.
Ruiz (5-0, 2 KOs), who made his pro-debut on a Goossen Tutor fight card at Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino earlier this year, has an impressive amateur background most recently having earned a Silver medal in the 2009 National Golden Gloves and a Bronze medal in the U.S. Mens Open National Championship.
"I have laid a solid foundation for my professional career by putting in my time as an amateur and have made the transition into a pro fighter. Now that I made that move I felt it was necessary to take the next step by signing with a top promotional company. I believe as dedicated as I am to my career and with Dan Goossen’s "know how" they will lead me to title contention. I know it’s early in my professional career but anybody who is successful has a goal from the get-go and that is my goal."
Added Dan Goossen, "I’ve seen Michael fight and I like his style. He’s a promising young fighter willing to fight his way to the top with an aggressive, entertaining style."
