    The first two questions were rhetorical, due to poor description gdm gave as to what he believes "domination" means.

    I said that Joshua dominated Ruiz because Ruiz got nothing going that night. It was a dominant performance from AJ.
    But in boxing, "domination" seems to mean brutalizing you opponent. It´s some vague term everyone has their own idea of.
    I am just going by the words actual definition.

    Joshua lost at least 2 rounds to Ruiz. The overall punch stats were very telling. It was a very low punch volume fight.

    AJ could be all wrong for Fury. We seen what Wallin did to him when he let his hands go in bunches. I can see AJ TKOing Fury.

    He's not all wrong for Fury. Someone all wrong for Fury would be a Super Heavy Weight version of Joe Fraizer. Joshua's combos and aggression could get to Fury but Aj has slow feet and he struggles with slick fighters like he did against Savon in the Olympics which is Why is see Usyk giving him more problems than Fury, Fury is slick but he's HUGE and is susceptible to body shots as shown in the Wallin fight which is why i slightly lean towards Aj by late TKO

    I used to worry about Usyk’s chances of beating AJ but after watching the Chisora fight my worries were put to rest. Usyk will get ragdolled and stopped by AJ. He looked too uncomfortable when Chisora got close.

    Eh do keep in mind the ring was small and Chisora put IMMENSE pressure on Usyk, No breathing room nonstop in the early rounds. Aj might pressure usyk but not to that extent. The likely thing Aj will do is either A: fight and pressure behind a jab like he did against Parker or B: Purely Box with Usyk and make Usyk come to him and counter like he did against Pulev. Joshua should probably try the latter because he has a significant reach advantage. If Joshua tried to attack Usyk aggressively its going to be Usyk vs Joyce all over again.

    AJ will have his way with Usyk whatever style or game plan he uses.

    Ingenious is not the first word that comes to mind when I think of AJ.

    I'm going to wait and see what the weigh in looks like , check the odds, and if it's decent bet on Fury to win. Also might bet on Fury to get the KO. I'm not that sure Joshua's chin will hold up.

    You're underestimating Usyk im just saying. His footwork is A1 and his style is reminiscent to Ali's, he's also around the same size. Not saying he's as good as Ali but he's a good fighter. If Joshua goes after Usyk and doesn't knock him out he'll gas by round 2.

    He’ll break Usyk down and stop him in rounds 7-9.
