This is how Andy Ruiz’s disputed victory over Chris Arreola was experienced

This May 1, 2021, Andy Ruiz Jr. and Chris Arreola they met in one of the most anticipated matches of the month. With a different physique than his fight against Anthony Joshua, the former champion managed to prevail against his rival. However, the decision was questioned after the even exchange of blows between the protagonists and, even after the fall of Ruiz in the second round.
