    Ruiz vs Parker was definitely close enough that I can see the debate existing, but anyone who says Ruiz was robbed need to build a ****ing bridge - especially Ruiz. Anyone saying Parker was robbed versus AJ though, not sure wtf that is about. It's a shame the ref didn't let Parker in close enough that he'd be able to do damage but its not like it was going to be a given

    The only argument I have for that is the folks that think AJ "decided" to fight that fight in a boring way, folks sleep on Joe a bit and the Parker that fought AJ was a much more complete fighter than the one who fought Ruiz. If Ruiz hasn't also improved since his fight with Parker then he is going to maybe look threatening for a bit but then get clobbered from range against AJ.

    Parker won and Dimitrenko has no heart, so your point is?

    Ruiz has 0% chance here. Ruiz doesn't have the power and the dimensions are nearly impossible for him to overcome when you factor in his obesity.
    They banned me so I couldn't bet all my money Wilder KO Breazele. They'll probably ban me before AJ KO Two Ton AR.
    Ruiz is a one dimensional tank that runs out of gas after four rounds.

    Aj's power is hype if he doesn't highlight reel KO Ruiz.

    Parker couldn't KO Ruiz because they're similar height. Parker still 8-4 Ruiz. Unless you score walking into Jabs round after round beating Parker.Watching Ruiz nearly getting stopped vs Tor Hammer is all you need to see. If AJ has elite power like Wilder has, Ruiz won't last 2 rounds

    I think Ruiz is gonna suprise people with how well he does in bursts.

    I hope for AJs sake hes not underestimating him the way many of his fans are.

    That being said... if AJ is smart and is patient he should dissect Ruiz and get a late stoppage.

    Hard to get excited about this, terrible fight just like Wilder vs. Brezeale.

    This is a much better opponent than Breazeale

    After this fight happens you won’t be calling it a terrible fight either. Ruiz Jr is a decent boxer

    I can see Ruiz starting fast and dominating the first 20 seconds or so before Joshua gets the measure of him and knocks him down a couple of times before stopping him before the end of the round.

    I’m not too interested in it. Its not Joshua fault though and Ruiz will come to fight. Joshua by KO mid rounds

    This will be a dogfight. Aslong as the judges dec goes along with what happens in the fight I’m cool with it.
    May the best boxer win.
