    Could the Ruiz who stopped AJ beat the Tyson who beat Ruddock 2x?

    No no , not a chance . Tyson wears him down in 6 .. and it's painful to watch .

    One of the things that Ruiz had going for him into the AJ fight was:

    A) AJ has had some sort of psychological issue since the Klitshcko fight; he seemed to be fighting scared against Parker, Povetkin. It's no surprise he sought the services of a sports psychologist.

    and

    B) Ruiz had the handspeed advantage on the inside where he was beating AJ to the punch.

    Against Tyson those advantages disappear. Tyson was confident and his handpseed was rivaled by only a handful of fighters in history.

    It would be a highlight reel like stoppage.

    Ruiz wouldn't beat the Tyson who fought Golota, let alone the pre-prison Tyson.

    Mike executes that fat ****.

    He could beat him to the snickers bowl. Beat him to the buffet line. Ruiz beats the Tyson that Danny, McBride & Lewis beat.

    He could ,that was not primeTyson.Would he ? I don't think so ,come forward punchers need 2 of the following 4 qualities , great chin , top end power , fast hands ,and feet.Ruiz has the hand speed,possibly the chin ,but neither of the other two, imo.
    Tyson,[even the Razor version,] hits a lot faster than Joshua,and appears to have had the better chin, plus his defence was better,

    Tyson was in his prime when he faced Ruddock. He may have moved away from the peek-a-boo style but against Ruddock he was physically in his prime.

    Ruiz is likely a better boxer than most people give him credit for and his Mexican fighting spirit will not see him quit - he's not tall enough, naturally strong enough and too slow of feet with too much mass for Tyson to hit.

    Tyson finishes this inside 3 - 5 rounds.
