    If AJ wins. they'll be 1-1. You sure if AJ wins, THAT isn't the fluke?

    Honestly pointless trying to discuss boxing with him, he’s got his opinions which will never change no matter what which is fair enough. Will never have a worthwhile convo with him tho

    Yup. They're only on loan. Saturday will show that this was, in fact, a fluke.

    How does Aj winning mean Ruiz' win was a fluke? A third fight would be the only logical thing to do.

    Lets just enjoy the second fight first, we dont need to do trilogies on one go.. other people in line for the belt stop being greedy Lance.

    Greedy? They'll have been 1-1 versus one another. Ruiz is the current champ, but he doesn't get a rematch?

    Anybody who thinks Ruiz was out boxing Joshua from the opening bell in the first fight is talking nonsense. Not much happened in the first 2 rounds but no way was Joshua 2 rounds down going into the 3rd.

    After Joshua was hurt Ruiz was firmly in control.

    If Joshua sticks to a gameplan and isn't mentally incapable of letting his hands go, then he can beat Ruiz

    Whyte is also 1:1 with AJ.. so?

    Whyte been waiting 700 days for Wilder and others jumped the queue for free

    learn to be patient Lance.. its a virtue

    Why not. Wilder and Fury are likely to do a trilogy(unless Wilder scores an early KO or Fury puts on a Calzaghe/Lacy type of domination, both of which are unlikely), AJ and Ruiz may as well do a rubber match should Joshua win, especially if it involves as much drama as the first fight.

    Though I must say I’d rather see the winner against Usyk first.

    Whyte was KO'd by AJ already. WTF do you mean 1-1 w/ AJ?

    And Whyte has a fight coming up in a week. Maybe let that play out before begging for him to get another crack. Wilder and Fury still have their own unfinished business. What happens w/ Ruiz v Aj depends entirely how their upcoming bout goes.
