Former IBF World Lightweight champion, Rafael Ruelas, came on TheBoxingBar.com’s podcast last night to talk about his career in boxing. Ruelas defeated Freddie Pendleton on February 19, 1994 at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood to win the title. Rafael faced many of the top fighters of his time including Jorge “El Maromero” Paez, Rocky Lockridge, Livingstone Bramble, Kostya Tszyu, and Oscar De La Hoya. A few weeks ago I got to see and speak to him and his brother Gabriel and they still look sharp. Last night Rafael stated that he has passed physicals to make a comeback fight and would be willing to. Thanks for coming on Rafa!
