Finally, a Report on the Litzau-Ruiz Fight

Fightnews.com is the first outlet I’ve seen that has any real reporting on the Litzau-Ruiz match from last Friday night.

According to the Fightnews article (http://www.fightnewsextra.com/ac/salazar2) the fight began so slowly that the crowd was booing early, but finally got going in the third.  Litzau won it with late aggression, with the scoring looking like this:

  • Jerry Cantu: 98-92
  • Jack Reis: 97-93
  • Marty Denkin: 98-92

Expect Litzau to fight at least once more on Friday Night Fights or HBO before getting a title shot.  The fact is, the casual fan has only heard Litzau’s name and probably needs to see him in a glamor fight before they’ll show any interest in a title fight.
