Former unified world heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz has underwent a successful surgery on his right knee. Ruiz and the people around him believe and hope he will be back in the ring somewhere in December.
Initially, the Mexican fighter was supposed to fight in October, but it seems he finally made the decision to get his knee right, as it has bee bothering him for years.
“They operated on his right knee, he had been struggling with that knee for about three years, he could not run very much, he could not do certain movements, he used gel and things like that to mitigate the pain, but recently it was not enough and he made the decision of the operation that was an arthroscopy and it was done by the same doctor who operated on Canelo, Pedro Lomeli,” said Andy Ruiz Sr. in a conversation with ESPN Deportes.
Ruiz’s last fight was in May when he defeated Chris Arreola.
