    Who wins? Can Ruiz beat Usyk with his pressure and handspeed?

    I doubt he could do it. He couldn't pin down Parker or Joshua in the rematch and Usyk moves better than both of them. Usyk's style isn't going to give him the openings to counter like Joshua and Parker did as his approach is far more tactical and cautious early on and is to feint and pressure you into leading not leading and allowing you to counter him.

    Ruiz's best chance is a KO but Usyk seems to have a good chin and I can't see Ruiz winning on points he simply doesn't throw enough due to his weight issues effecting his out put and ability to get into positions to throw. Plus once the fight gets into the 2nd half we know Usyk turns the screw after gradually chipping away at an opponent I can see Ruiz gassing badly in the 2nd half of the fight.

    Other than Fury I can't think of a worse style for Ruiz Jr.

    Ruiz couldnt catch AJ and you think he can catch Usyk

    Is this a trick question?
