    Andy Ruiz looks to have trimmed down quite dramatically since the initial press conference and media coverage 5 weeks ago:

    Boxer Patrick Day has died at the age of 27 - four days after sustaining head injuries in a fight against Charles Conwell.
    The American was put in a coma with a serious brain injury on Saturday after he was knocked out in the 10th round of his super welterweight bout in Chicago.

    Man that’s tragic about Patrick Day, hope his family are taken care of financially

    Andy Ruiz- from past history sometimes boxers think they need to lean down and be faster etc. But maybe his size and physicality helped him deal with a naturally much bigger AJ? The bulk and weight could be what makes him effective and a heavier boxer= heavier punch even if it’s fat

    AJ takes him out in mid rounds for me

    People are claiming that the slimmer pics are older pics and he is missing tattoos which were done later??

    Horrendous news about Patrick Day, RIP.

    That was my initial reaction, that his size offered more of an advantage than just deception. When I've taken a dig from guys who look like they're carrying a little extra weight, I've definitely felt that weight more!

    Yeah I think you're right about that pics, they've been doing the rounds because he said this in a recent interview with ESPN:

    "I will arrive in better condition.... lighter, faster and more powerful."

    So probably a case of poor/misleading journalism.
