    I never did read it..

    Assuming CST didn't factor in two vital pieces of information..

    Ruiz is fat for a reason and AJ had way too much money behind him to fail again...

    Yes, and how the **** does that invalidate what I said? That Ruiz's victory was in fact, NOT A FLUKE. Otherwise AJ wouldn't have had to drop weight and work on his stamina for months on end, had he showed up the same fighter, which has been more than good enough to beat other fighters, he would have lost again. You don't make adjustments and change your body type for flukes. Thankfully for AJ and his team, they realized that, even when most fanboys didn't.

    He didn't, and couldn't, replicate his victory. Therefore fluke. Simple as that
    Yes you do. Even if you're working on the premise that your opponent got lucky you do your best to ensure that your opponent doesn't get lucky twice.
    Look at Lewis v Rahman. That was a lucky punch. Even so, Lewis came back in amazing shape for the rematch just to make sure Rahman didn't get lucky again

    He didn't and couldn't because AJ changed the way he fought, because if he'd have fought the way he did, he would lose again. So therefore. FLUKE. If it wasn't a fluke, then why didn't AJ just go to war? No, he ran, and ran for a reason.

    There's no lucky punches in boxing.

    I think you're confused here
    Of course there are. If there weren't, the phrase 'a puncher's chance' would not exist

    Maybe he had the tools to do it but alot of things had to go right for him to do it..

    I like "the lucky punch theory" better...

    No, I'm not. When a fighter has to change the entire style in which he fights out of fear of losing a rematch if he utilizes the exact same strategy. That should tell you and everyone else who isn't a mindless brain dead fanboy, that someone realized fighting Ruiz the same way the second time, the same inherent risk will present itself. AJ realized, Ruiz is better at close range and is a better inside fighter and would beat him more often than not at close range, so he made the logical decision to go long range.

    AJ and his team knew it wasn't a fluke.Why don't you? Maybe you're confused.

    A puncher's chance refers to the assumption most people make where a less skilled opponent will need a lucky punch to win the fight, but if his ring IQ is good enough to get him into position to land said punch, that means he's is not as skill-less as people assumed. So sorry, still not a lucky punch.

    56 is a hell of a lot of lucky punches.

    They both ran, because they had to. Ruiz and Fury didn't give them a choice in the matter.
