    My point regarding Ruiz was the optics. It looks even worse if he appears to be in bad shape.

    Amir Khan who was World Champion but also fought in plenty of fights with uncertain outcomes and a few where he was the underdog where Joshua has had only 2 live tests to date and lost to a fatty.

    There is no contest here - Khan by a mile.

    In terms of achievements Khan, i consider AJ to be a top 5 heavyweight in the world right now but lets face facts his career defining fight so far was a win against a 41 year old Klitschko who hadnt boxed in pver a year. That said AJ has crossed over to being a household name around the world better than Khan and wether we like it or not legacy isboften decided by the casuals. PS fully expect to get hate frok the "hardcores" for not claiming AJ is the worst fighter ever and daring to praise a matchroom fighter.

    Earn scammed the public well and truly with his World Class Sales Pitch and careful selection of puddings to fight Tony Dosh PPV.

    Joshua is the current day Herbie Hide yet Earn's sales pitch has him up there with great World Champions such Lennox Lewis, Muhammed Ali and the best World Champion to come out of Watford Shanny Courtenay.

    Khan has been knocked out more, Prescott was nowhere near Ruiz`s level.

    Wilder would have planted Tony Dosh PPV if they fought when 'champions'

    Joshua by miles

    joshua = olympic gold medalist, 2 time unified champ - 3 belts, better resume, won more world title fights, lost far less been knocked out far less. has lasted at the top far longer.

    joshua is better every way you look at it. not even close

    khan has been a joke for the last decade. lost to poor and mediocre fighters. been knocked out and knocked down countless times. failed to win a world title in 3 of the 4 divisions hrs fought in and was knocked out in all 4 of them

    lol Khan was the big favourite in the vast majority of his fights. including the 3 embarrassing losses to Prescott Peterson & Garcia .. those were cherry picks gone wrong

    the only time he was the underdog was against Alvarez and Crawford in which he just was happy to get paid to lose . and slight underdog vs brook - another cash grab

    you're just a biased joshua hater. any neutral person knows joshua has done far more than khan

    i could post countless videos of khan getting hurt like that

    go count how many times khan has been dropped ( must be about 15 - 18 times) compared to joshua

    and how many times hes been ko'd/ stopped - 5, compared to joshua - 1

    Show me an obese fatty humiliating Khan - this is the funniest comedy moment ever in a boxing ring and people will laugh at this for years and years along with Only Fools and Horses

    Every AJ fight since mid-2019 has had an uncertain outcome by definition.
