I’M AIMING FOR THE BEST CONDITION IN MY WEIGHT CLASS AND THE BEST PACKAGE I HAVE BROUGHT TO DATE.
BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: Martae Ruelas
Martae Ruelas is the upfront, tell-it-like-it-is kind of guy we really admire. We met him in person for the first time at Metroflex Gym in Phoenix where he trains. After we were introduced he said, “I wrote you guys about sponsoring me a few months ago but you ignored me.” We hate when people hold back and so we liked Martae right away. And we have corrected our oversight: we are sponsoring Martae for his appearance in the West Coast Classic in California next June.
BBG: Hi Martae. Just so people have a little context, can you give us a brief run-down of your competitive history? And what are you current basic stats?
Martae: I have competed several times in the past. I won the first show I ever competed in as a bantamweight. Then won the lights, and then middles a
little later. I’m 5’4” and currently 185 right now going into the show as a middleweight.
