Two weeks ago, Rocky Lockridge turned 33 and it hurt. Thursday night, Lockridge ran into Rafael Ruelas. That really hurt. Lockridge, the former junior lightweight champion, was battered relentlessly for 10 rounds by Ruelas, 20, of Arleta, losing a bloody and lopsided decision at the Country Club in Reseda. It was Lockridge's first fight in 2 1/2 years. "Just 20," Lockridge said of Ruelas. "That seems like a long time ago for me. My youth went by so quickly."
