Jason “The American Boy” Litzau, a product of Saint Paul, is scheduled to meet respected veteran Edel Ruiz on the undercard of the Mayorga-Vargas event at the Staples Center on Friday, November 23.
While this fight isn’t a career-maker, it isn’t just a stay-busy date, either. Ruiz has been through the wars, facing Joan Guzman in 2001, Ricardo Medina and Paulie Ayala in 2003, Angel Chacon and Victor Santiago in 2004, and Juan Manuel Lopez in 2006. Ruiz is a known quantity; a man against whom Litzau can be measured. Ruiz is also a threat, having notched 20 kayos in 29 career victories.
The fight is scheduled for ten rounds, and will be a major supporting bout on the undercard of Vargas-Mayorga. Unfortunately the In Demand PPV website doesn’t indicate whether this is one of the three bouts which will be televised.
The announced schedule for this fight night follows:
· Fernando Vargas –v- Ricardo Mayorga (main event)
· Kermit Cintron –v- Jesse Feliciano
· Jason Litzau –v- Edel Ruiz
· Roman Karmazin –v- Alejandro Garcia
· Raul Martinez –v- Juan Alberto Rosas
