    Andy already defeated and humiliated Joshua. How do you think his fights vs Wilder and Fury go?
    Can Andy become the Big 3 Slayer?

    I think he spanks Wilder even worse than he did AJ.

    Fury 'jabs his nut in' for 12 rounds to a wide UD.

    Already splatted AJ of course, but I'm confident AJ wins the rematch.

    I doubt it. Of the "Big Three", Joshua is not only the shortest, but he's also the one most likely to take risks on the inside, as shown by his foolhardy attempt to finish Ruiz off with stupidly telegraphed hooks, and it's that facet that played right into Andy's game plan.

    Wilder on the other hand has shown in the first four rounds against Ortiz that he is content to lose rounds (theoretically at least, were it not for iffy cards) through low activity, looking for a singular straight punch to turn the fight in his favour. And Fury is simply too long, too mobile and too defensively astute to let Ruiz near him, he could win every second of every round in a snoozefest with little more than an active jab, IMO.

    That's not to say Ruiz couldn't beat Wilder, on skill level alone I'd give him a damn good chance. It's just of the three I think Joshua was his best chance of an upset because Joshua is the one most willing to give up his reach advantage.

    I can see Andy have the iq to stay away from Windmill's right hands and hand speed to get to catch him when inside. So i reckon Andy would spark out Windmill by round 6.

    Fury would UD get Andy at the end of his jab in a dull UD.

    I think he ‘could’ beat wilder but not fury. I’m fairly certain he beats Joshua in the rematch

    Hard to say how he does against Wilder. Wilder wont be in the pocket trying to throw combinations against Ruiz. He will be fighting long while waiting to land a bomb. I find the matchup interesting.

    I think Fury beats him by UD.

    He loses to both.

    Wilder doesn't want anything on the inside and isn't gonna hang around there, he'll wing shots from the outside, he's also significantly more fleet footed. One thing with Wilder, he does know how to play keep away and doesn't care about stinking up the joint with lack of action and landed shots because he knows eventually he's gonna connect. I think despite Andy ko'ing Joshua, Wilder would have an easier time with Ruiz than he would with Joshua.

    Styles make fights.

    Fury quite simply is the worst stylistic matchup possible for Andy out of any current HW in the top 10. Too big, too tall, too mobile, too slick, to durable. And Andy's handspeed would have to deal with someone else that can effectively throw in combination, someone with other advantages.

    Fury depends on ref. Fury doesn’t posses a legitimate offense and would lose if Andy’s hands were freed. He would also get pounded hard the body.

    Wilder has the legs to win rounds and twice the one shot power of Joshua so I favor him.

    Good point, Fury never faced somebody, who goes to the body a lot.

    I think Fury would be all wrong for lead-footed Ruiz. I'd favor Wilder in part for that reason as well, but that's a dangerous matchup for him. Joshua rematch, to me, is 50/50.

    Loses to all three. To Joshua in the rematch.

    Andy is one of the big three.

    Fury and Wilder are the other two.
