Tony was fit, muscular, confident, and easily controlled the fight. He is seemingly an improved boxer under the tutelage of Louie Burke.Ruiz did seem docile and evidently did not have his fighting heart in the bout. The last 20 seconds of the 3rd round is indicative of his lack of competitive will. Check it out.
Too many wars? Too much Tony?

From the boxing website:
Something of this fashion:
Antonio Escalante TKO'd Edel Ruiz in the 3rd. As you would expect with this fight, Escalante stomped and got rid of Ruiz in short order........However, by beating Ruiz (34-23-4, 25 KO) really does nothing at all for Escalante (24-2, 15 KO).
BLH goes on to say that Tony still might be a good draw with promoters for a world title shot. Nevertheless, BLH is of the opinion that Tony's power is insufficient for the top boxers.
