Heriberto Ruiz of Mexico took a unanimous 10-round decision over countryman Eduardo Garcia in their super bantamweight fight at the Gold Coast Tours Hotel & Casino. Ruiz, ranked No. 5 by the International Boxing Federation, won 98-92 on one judge's card and 96-94 on the other two. The 27-year-old Ruiz, who lost to Rafael Marquez for the IBF bantamweight championship last July, was busy throughout the bout but never hurt Garcia. Ruiz, who had an abrasion under his left eye, was jarred during the third round, but the light-punching Garcia couldn't inflict further damage. Ruiz improved to 33-3-2, while 25-year-old Garcia dropped to 15-4. (AP)
