Top Rank, in association with Bash Boxing, Art of Boxing Promotions, and the Glendale Civic Auditorium in Glendale, California, will bring Solo Boxeo Tecate on Unimas back on August 9. In the main event, rising undefeated Mexican-American heavyweight prospect Andy “The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. (22-0, 16 KOs) will defend his NABF and WBO Intercontinental heavyweight titles against Nagy Aguilera (19-8, 13 KOs). Ruiz, the former amateur standout and Mexican Olympic Team member, has quickly ascended the pro ranks in his last three bouts by displaying his speed and explosiveness in early knockouts of Manueal Quezada (28-9), Tor Hamer (21-2) and previously undefeated prospect Joe Hanks (21-0). Ruiz is currently ranked #2 in the world in the WBO and #11 in the world in the WBC. Aguilera gained world recognition in 2009 when he knocked out former WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev in the first round.
The co-main event will feature undefeated San Antonio prospect Ivan “Bam Bam” Najera (13-0, 8KOs) versus former #1 ranked amateur, Stan “The Man” Martyniouk (13-1, 2KOs).
