LOS ANGELES, CA June 19, 2002
The Ruelas brothers – Gabriel and Rafael – are making a comeback in the ring and in the media spotlight. The two popular fighters from Mexico have signed on with Los Angeles-based manager Mike Rubinstein of Steel City Boxing, and have begun training for a rise back to the top of the boxing ranks. Gabriel Ruelas will fight for the second time this year when he takes on an opponent to be determined on Friday, June 28, at the Farm Bureau Building in Indianapolis, Ind. Tickets to the fight can be purchased through TicketMaster.
Rafael Ruelas, the younger of the two brothers at age 31 (Gabriel is 32), has not fought professionally since August 1999, when he defeated Hicklet Lau in Las Vegas his only fight that year. He has a record of 53-4, with 42 knockouts.
For Gabriel, boxing has been a way of life since 1988. He has fought every year since then, although he has avoided the media spotlight and fought less since 1995, following the death of Jimmy Garcia after the two fought in Las Vegas. He is 48-6 with 24 KOs.
About Gabriel Ruelas
Born in Jalisco, Mexico, Gabriel Ruelas immigrated to the United States with his brother and sister when he was seven. While selling candy door-to-door with his brother, Gabriel showed up at Joe Goossen"s gym and announced he wanted to be a fighter. Goossen, who only trained professionals, tried to discourage the 12-year old Gabriel and told him he was not interested in training him. Ruelas was persistent, however, and Goossen reconsidered. Gabriel and his brother Rafael got their nickname "The Candy Kids"- from their first meeting with Goossen.
Gabriel Ruelas enjoyed a successful amateur career that included a 55-3 record and the California Golden Gloves bantamweight championship. He made his pro debut on September 16, 1988, by scoring a first-round knockout over Raul Martinez. From his pro debut in 1988, until March 1990, Ruelas won 21 straight fights, six by knockout in the first round.
About Rafael Ruelas
The 5" 11 Rafael began his pro career in 1989, with a four-round decision over Marcos Covarrubias. He won 27 consecutive fights before losing on a fluke to Mauro Gutierrez on July 30, 1991. Decked by a flash knockdown in the first round, Ruelas rested on one knee concentrating on directions coming from Joe Goossen in his corner. Suddenly the referee reached 10 and a stunned Ruelas was counted out. He set the record straight the next year by defeating Gutierrez handily in a 10-rounder.
Responding to adversity is a sign of a true champion. On February 19, 1994, in front of a raucous, capacity, pro-Ruelas crowd at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Freddie Pendleton knocked Ruelas down twice. The taunting, mocking and boastful Pendleton floored Ruelas in the first round, and then again 30 seconds later. However, instead of ending Ruelas’ world championship bid, it served as a wake-up call.
