He should have turned it into a pinky ring.

Now ruiz can keep pretending he is a champion. Ruiz can jab and hold his belt just like what he used to do in the ring.

He should've added it to his new belt.

He should return it. It's meaninless. Todays heavy weight division is as bad as it has ever been. This no talent giant barely whips Ruiz who himself is not a great fighter. It shows how far the division has sunk. In the days of Ali, Frazier, Foreman, Norton, and Holmes neither of these guys could hold their jock straps. Even china chinned hard punching Earnie Shavers would have knocked out these bums.

Well, someone has to have the title (and I guess the belt as well). I'm a welterweight, and I'm not interested in jumping that many weight classes. Anyone? It sounds like applications for Heavyweight Champion of the World are being accepted at the front desk.

A slap bracelet. You know the ones that were super cool in the nineties.

chicobangs I'll apply to be World Champion. Now I only weigh 165 lbs., BUT, if accepted for the position of Champion of the World, I will eat a LOT of food and get up to speed in no time. Also, I'll be holding a lot of press conferences bashing my opponent, then drop out of fights due to knee injuries until the title is stripped from me. Then I'll go on ESPN and claim that the title was robbed from me and I will no longer partake in an unjust system, thus finishing my career undefeated.
