from Boxing news.com

"Two-time World Boxing Association heavyweight champion John "The Quietman" Ruiz, his advisor/attorney Tony Cardinale and head trainer Manny Siaca, Sr., have issued a statement claiming that they plan to petition the WBA to rule Ruiz' loss to Nikolai Valuev a no-contest and strip Valuev of the WBA title. Accoring to Team Ruiz, throughout the fight Valuev's cornermen received judges' scoring results as the rounds went on. Other allegations include 1) Judge Takeshi Shimakawa improperly kept a running score during the fight, which is prohibited by the WBA, 2) Ruiz was not credited with a knockdown in the second round (which was ruled a slip), 3) Judge Antonio Requena scored two rounds even, despite WBA instructions that there should be no even rounds scored in championship bouts. Team Ruiz is also demanding a full videotape of Valuev-Ruiz II to further review for evidence of alleged corrupt practices. "The WBA needs to resolve this matter as quickly as possible," Ruiz said. "Non-officials are not allowed to handle or read scorecards during the fight. Valuev should be stripped and a rematch ordered."

Is there a less-liked athlete in all the world of sports than John Ruiz?



“How is it that I am a good actor? What I do is I... pretend to be the person I’m portraying. You’re confused. Case in point: in Lord of the Rings, Peter Jackson comes to me and says ‘I would like you to be Gandalf the Wizard,’ and I said ‘You are aware that I am not really a wizard?’ and Peter Jackson said ‘I would like you to use your acting skills to portray a wizard for the duration of the show.’ So I said ‘Okay’ and then I said to myself ‘Mmm.. How do I do that?’ And this is what I did: I imagined that I was a wizard, and then I pretended, and acted, in that way on the stage. How did I know what to say? The words were written down for me in a script. How did I know where to stand? People told me where to stand." -- Sir Ian McKellen, Extras

I know next to nothing about boxing, but it sounds like these are legitimate gripes. If the rule says judges have to act one way, and then the judges act a different way, is that not a legitimate complaint?

If there is, I'm sure he'd whine about it.

According to Dan Rafael on ESPN.com, the decision in their first fight was so bad that when it was announced in Valuev's favor his adopted hometown crowd actually BOOED the decision. Ruiz protested that decision, too, and the WBA did nothing, then.

Not a good week for judging, with those two atrociously judged fights on Saturday.

Isn't it a violation of the Geneva Convention to force someone to watch a John Ruiz fight?

Newest update on Boxingnews.com:

"For the international media, the outcome of the fight was clear. The Daily Telegraph wrote: “On closer examination of the 12 rounds, Valuev will clearly be seen to have dominated Ruiz with his jab, and 84 inch reach, allied with having the greater skills he showed when he outpointed former titleholder Sergei Liakhovich, from Belarus, winning every round in a February 2008 title eliminator at the Nuremberg Arena.” Bild, Germany´s biggest-selling tabloid, reported: “Gigantic win for Russian Giant. All in all it was a sovereign victory.”"

I was referring to the two HBO fights.

I thought it was a very good show, with nothing too unexpected happening but solid action throughout the card. Out of the six or so Pride events I've been ordering with friends to try and convert them to MMA, this is the card they were most into.
