According to Nelssie Carrillo, Julia Lemus argued in her petition for a restraining order that «(he) sexually, physically, and psychologically abused me, making me feel like I had to walk on eggshells around him.»

The complaint indicates that the alleged abuse escalated in 2019, after Ruiz beat Anthony Joshua in a super heavyweight title fight. At that time, the boxer began aggressively grabbing her arms and dragging her around. The 26-year-old accuses him of hitting her and causing bruises on her arms and legs.

The complainant stated that, earlier this year, the Mexican athlete pointed an AK-47 rifle at her face, making her fear for her safety. “He told me to shut up and then I noticed that the guns had no bullets, so he started telling me that I was being very dramatic,” she explained.

But in the month of February the alleged attacks escalated, as the young woman accuses him of having raped her at least six times, actions that she reported to the San Diego Police Department, where she was granted a restraining order. Filed Under: Boxer Andy Ruiz Rape

After learning of the complaint, the Mexican boxer has denied abusing his ex, whom he accuses of stealing $250,000 from him, in addition to threatening him with a firearm in April 2020. No more is known so far on the status of the complaint filed before the judge.

Ruiz doesn’t believe that the allegations made against him are important enough to take him away from his children, nor that he is a danger to them.
