Ruben Villa remains perfect with 5th round stoppage in Ontario, California

ORANGE, Calif. (May 22, 2017) – Top featherweight prospect Ruben Villa
(6-0, 4 KOs) continues to impress early in his professional career. Villa,
a southpaw fighting out of Salinas, Calif., picked apart Anthony de Jesus
Ruiz (2-3, 2 KOs) to win by fifth round technical knockout.

Villa, who was naturally bigger than Ruiz, unloaded a serious of damaging
shots in the fifth round. By that point, Ruiz had already absorbed a great
deal of punishment and his corner wisely put an end to the onslaught at the
2:43 mark.

“My jab was working well all night,” said Villa, who is promoted by
Thompson Boxing and Banner Promotions. “I worked off backing him up with
the jab and then that opened up a lot of angles for me to land power shots.”

“Ruben looked fantastic on Fridaynight,” said Ken Thompson, president of
Thompson Boxing. “He looked really comfortable and was in firm control of
the fight from start to finish. He managed to fight a patient, yet
aggressive fight to secure another knockout win.”

“We have been very happy with Ruben’s development. He is shaping to be the
fighter we believe he will be,” said Banner Promotions vice-president,
Matthew Rowland. “He is going to have a big future.”

The fight can be viewed on Thompson Boxing Promotions Facebook page.
