Haven't commented on the fight since it happened.....thought would wait for all the reactionist silliness to pass somewhat So here are my irrelevant thoughts.... Why was Ruiz such an underdog ? Whem he was announced as the opponent I felt he was AJs most dangerous opponent since Vlad . Ruiz had one close loss on away turf and a solid amateur background. I rated him above Takam , Whyte ( and way above the Whyte that fought Joshua, who them wasn't training and preparing the way he does now) and and old unjuiced Povetkin, and as for Braez I am still confused as to how he became WBC mandatory....he is awful I'm neither an AJ super fan or an AJ hater..... I respect that he did what he needed to do to get to where he was. But also he was half gifted gold medal which landed him the big Matchroom backing and Fury's stupidity lead to the world title falling into his lap. outside of Wilder he fought pretty much all the best opponents since winning the world title. BUT he is flawed....like all the top heavyweights. I didn't think he looked quite right before the fight but even if he was carrying an injury I don't think that physically effected him in the fight but maybe mentally. But end of the day he fought a more intelligent fighter who has a solid chin and got caught hard on temple then on top of the head and never recovered. Those quick hands killed him. Talk of AJ being finished is a joke though. When you look at the division you cant seriously say he is finished, he got fastracked to the top and earnt a load of cash in the process but that means he aint seasoned. I think he can beat Ruiz in a rematch but I make it a 60/40 in Ruiz favour. Ruiz could quite easily beat Wilder IF he can engage close before Wilder lands a bomb. It just makes me laugh that joshua losing to Ruiz means he is finished and wilder beating the terrible Brazeale makes him an ATG lol P.s. 12 months ago if AJ and wilder had fought I wpuld have rooted for Wilder. I'm a Brit but I like seeing underdogs upset the apple cart when the A side has had a smoother route to the riches. But now ibwpuld route for AJ if he can beat Ruiz in a rematch. Ideally I wanna see Fury beat Wilder and Ruiz beat AJ followed by a fatty unification !
