    If Joshua fights with the same game plan as against Povetkin I expect him to win, possibly by TKO in the same manner. Joshua definitely has the power to stop Ruiz if he lands correctly with combinations, otherwise he can win on points. He can't get careless like in the first fight or it's a repeat basically.

    I will always back Joshua but hes been hurt too many times, that has to be in his head.

    He has the reach and height to keep it long and stay out of trouble. He also has enough power to keep Ruiz from storming him.

    He can win but where does he go from there. If he wins I could see him do a Fury and fight guys we've never heard of and get some confidence back and settle on a style that suits his build and attributes.

    Ruiz went down because his feet were together square on thinking there was going to be a clinch and break, he had no balance when hit with his feet in that position.

    Joshua was a 16 fight novice. Nobody was in their prime for that fight

    I might bet on Joshua.. not many people thought Wlad could comeback after the two losses to Sanders and Brewster but look where he stands today.

    Joshua has the size and if he learns how to utilize his advantage, most fighters cannot touch him.

    Like somebody mentioned, he needs to use his jab more and fight tall.

    Wlad got very clever under Manny Steward and I don’t think Joshua can replicate that process in which Wlad done. Wlad would have smashed Ruiz in his prime under Manny but Joshua just doesn’t have the same tenacity.

    I hope Joshua wins the rematch and he has a chance if he’s motivated and fully up for it but I think Ruiz can walk through him.

    I think he can but I totally agree with your comments about being a "real fighter" it's a bug bare of mine 're these so called real fighters like Fury for example who always talks of doing terrible things in the ring and on the night just delivers 100% pure tactics.
    Oddly enough for the reasons you've given I think Joshuas best chance of beating Ruiz is to deliver 100% pure tactics.
    Real fighters like Ruiz and Manny P do seem to enjoy the violence a bit too much lol.
    I'd be interested to see what CST80 thinks as he always had his doubts 're Joshua,doubts that I could not see?

    seriously do you really think this?Part of me thinks he's bound to win the rematch but then part of me thinks Ruiz isn't gonna allow Joshua a second wind,when he inevitably gasses after four rounds.
    I'm kinda sticking with a Joshua win though this time as there will be some questionable judging should it go twelve rounds.

    Ruiz spent 7 or 8 years being a no-name bum, scraping out wins over the likes of Tor Hamer, Joe Hanks and Kevin Johnson. He had his backers, but the reality was a career of underachievement. He didn't suddenly make good in the Joshua fight. He landed a fortuitous stunning blow on Joshua's temple and from then on the fight was his to lose. For all those who say you make your own luck, how many punches have you seen in fights that landed flush on a temple and scrambled the opponent's senses? Right, it happens very seldom. When it does, it's a game changer.

    Ruiz is not some world beater now. He's the same ham and egger he was 6 months ago. The same ill disciplined, emotionally unstable wreck. Who remembers Abel Sanchez talking about how Ruiz had to take some time out from the game because the comments on social media about his obesity were getting to him? Yeah, that's a thing. Great chin, glass ego.

    People like to act as if a loss means a fighter's career is over, that he's a bum and was always a bum and any success he had was the result of good fortune, conspiracy and shabby match-making. The reality, and it shouldn't need to be spelled out, is that everyone worth a damn loses at some point. The careers of Mayweather and Calzaghe have somehow influenced the viewing public and a great many boxing fans into thinking a loss is tantamount to absolute and irredeemable failure. The boxing viewership really needs to move beyond this petty notion.
