    People have been talking trash about him because of the rematch with AJ but he still has a spectacular tko victory over a prime unified champion, something even Wilder or Fury don’t have.

    Wilder and Fury don't have his spare 50lb of jelly either.

    Fury has the best win because he dethroned a long-time champion, but Ruiz has the second-best win. (Fury also No. 3, if you thought he got the better of Wilder.)

    Some people thought he edged Parker as well. The truth is the Ruiz would have destroyed the bodybuilder if he kept himself at 260. Joshua couldn't hurt the blob at all below 240lbs. Its time for Anthony to hang them up.

    Wilder beating Ortiz is up there.
    AJ beat relic Klitschko, Wlad the warlock was at his worst ever vs AJ

    I'd love to see Ruiz-Ortiz. That would be a barn burner, old ninja turtle vs Phat power puncher

    Fury’s win over Wilder in the first fight was the best win in HW division in a long time. Prime Wilder got a boxing lesson from a flabby version of Fury who was not close to top shape. The judges gifted Wilder the draw but anyone watching knew who won that fight. I didn’t even like Fury before the fight and thought he was foolish for choosing a dangerous opponent like Wilder before he had a chance to shake off the rust.

    Fat (Phat) Andy KOd the undefeated champ but AJ looked really bad from the start. He redeemed himself in the rematch and I don’t see Andy wearing the belt ever again. AJ had an off night and Andy had his best night. Any top HW would have probably beaten the AJ that showed up that night. This needs to be factored into the equation.

    I don’t care how the judges saw it, Fury’s win over Wilder was the biggest one in the HW division in recent years. AJs win over Klitschko was good but that was a faded Wlad so I don’t give it as much weight.

    Problem is he is a one trick pony like the German army with their blitzkrieg. Once the trick has been understood and exposed he's easy to beat for any skilled fighter. Nazi Germany didn't score any major wins beyond 1942 and neither will Andy Ruiz 2020 and beyond.

    Fury beating Wlad was probably a better win than Ruiz beating AJ. Wlad was a dominant champ for a long time.

    Fury beating Wilder makes Fury number 1 in the division for me. Fury has the best wins
