Ruiz has a strong penchant for eating Snickers bar before his fights. And his hashtag #snickers got a real response from the official Twitter account chocolate bar company Snickers. We can assume a future sponsorship deal is imminent.
After a big win, Ruiz changed his background Twitter photo to snickers.
