All jokes aside I think I actually agree with you. I think Lyle would have him hurt at some point and AJ wouldn't recover.
I guess you think Ruiz is the greatest heavy in the world now right?
Up to a few days ago , quite a few people thought he was just a chubby Mexican .But even now I don't see him as the greatest in the world .My personal feelings are this time next year we'll have forgotten about him .
23 year old Foreman was an extremely flawed fighter. Ruiz is a tank who knows his way around the ring and wouldn't be pushed around. They would go to war. Foreman is one of the greats of the last 50 years that Ruiz would have a good chance of beating.
Foreman is probably the worst match up I could imagine for Aj, foreman could take his shots and when he lands one of his one aj would be in serious trouble.
I give Joshua about as much time as Lyle. Foreman would crush him imo.
The greatest pressure fighter ever got destroyed in basically one round by Foreman but Ruiz would beat him because he won against Joshua? Great logic.
200 pounds, dude.
Do you actually think Ruiz hits harder or has better accuracy or work rate than Joe Frazier?
So what? Frazier is better in every aspect of boxing - better offense, better defense, better workrate, better conditioning, better accuracy, faster hands and legs, hell probably even stronger punch!
But Ruiz is fatter so he's better. I forgot..
The concept here is that Foreman was literally shoving Frazier out of position and then unloading.
Ruiz wouldn’t go anywhere which is why Joshua was caught so off guard. Joshua would hit him and expect him to lose balance, but when he’d follow up he’d find out that Ruiz had his feet planted and was ready to unload. This has everything to do with Ruiz being a tank.
Foreman as a 50 years old grandpa shoved huge Briggs like he was nothing. Ruiz is heavy but I doubt it would change much. Not to mention that Foreman wouldn't need shoving to beat Ruiz. Ruiz is much easier to hit than Frazier.
Foreman was really easy to hit. Far worse defense than Ruiz. Briggs was a 230 pound asthmatic back then.
B-B-But 260 pounds...he must hit harder!!
