    The “Wilder can’t box” stuff is boring now. Literally all some people talk about after every fight. Just enjoy the guy, he’s a walking highlight reel.

    His Knock at stats are amazing.Compared to all time Greats.

    Wilder. 95 percent
    V Klitschko. 87
    Forman. 83
    W Klitschko. 76
    Tyson. 75
    Liston. 72

    His stats will get even better when he knocks out his next 4 opponents and retires in style.

    He’s fought one single world class fighter, it’s either coincidence he couldn’t knock him out or maybe his record is completely padded.

    You said that the first time. If he couldn’t do it against a semi fit ill prepared ring rusty Fury what makes you think he will against a guy that’s going in to prove that Wilder is the massive * dosser that he is.

    There are 2 ways to win a Boxing match and Wilder has the most lethal punch I have seen,ever.
    Of course we have to wait for the rematch and I am 100 percent certain Wilder will put Fury’s lights out. He will not get back up this time.
    I cannot wait.

    Watching replay of AJ getting leathered off Ruiz, it's got me buzzing for sat. Keep changing my opinion for the rematch and right now I think Ruiz sparks him again.

    Had never heard of Ruiz before the last fight.

    Was it a complete fluke or did people see it coming?

    Any boxing fan I talk to they either think Joshua is the best thing ever or a complete fraud who’ll get shown up against the likes of Fury and Wilder :56:

    Joshua started boxing at the age of 18. Ruiz has been boxing since he was 5.

    You can make your own mind up watching past fights. Joshua is a good boxer, no doubts. He is very basic though and doesn't have a huge amount of power. He is going to need to hurt Ruiz in order to swing the fight in his favour, otherwise it's all Andy. That's how I see it.

    I’ve only watched a few big fights the last few years so when I see highlights or old fights of theirs I don’t know if the * they’re fighting are actually good.

    As much as I like Ruiz it would be more interesting to see AJ v Wilder or AJ v Fury than Ruiz vs those guys. If AJ loses I think he will retire and we won't see those fights. I don't mind who wins, I hope it's just like the last fight with a few knockdowns and no dodgy referees or scorecards if it goes that far. I do think Ruiz has to win by stoppage/KO as he just won't get a fair decision against AJ otherwise.

    Povetkin had him trouble, Klitschko threw it away when he had him beaten up a stick. Whyte had him in trouble also but that was quite a while ago. They've been the 3 best boxers he's faced, Parker is good as well & AJ made that look easy enough. All those fighters are of a fairly high standard.. good tests. The rest have been dirt such as Molina, Brezeale etc.

    AJ has definitely got big power one-punch KO power I would say he hits harder than Whyte, Parker and Ruiz but Ruiz is just so * fast I don't think I have ever seen such a fast heavyweight for a long time and the way he covers the ground quickly for such a fatty is quite amazing really.

    If youre ever looking for a bit of context just look at fight odds and it will usually tell you something about the guy he's fighting. Having said that, Ruiz was 16/1 :giggle1: I actually had a tenner on him as well because the AJ line is always inflated.
