    I don't know. By the way, don't rule out AJ fouling or rule bending when he needs to, it's in his nature. The ref needs to enforce the rules.

    Luis Pabon. He's known to allow clinching.

    Honestly though, Joshua isn't that good at clinching so it probably won't matter.

    Not an issue with Pabon and it's not a big deal anyway, Ruiz isn't going to be doing much work on the inside to begin with. Most of his effective work was either from the outside and the flurries that were set up by his outside work.

    Better than Giuseppe Quartarone, I was a bit worried they were going to try and get him.

    Watch Klitschko vs Povetkin and you know why I'm worried as well

    The whole event is shrouded in mystery as it is not covered by a recognised commission. No surprise to see so many drug cheats fighting on the bill. Ruiz will need a KO.

    The Wlad Pov fight was horrendous and a performance Wlad should look back on with a bit of shame tbh. Like others have said Joshua doesn't have that jab and grab style or ability.

    But I'm sure Sky and matchroom will do their best to stack the outcome in Joshua's favour.

    Matchroom have ramped up the bad reffing lately.

    Cordina's last bout was absolutely terrible and honestly could've been disqualified. He wasn't even warned!
    The event also had an absolute robbery in the Thulasi vs Benidze bout.

    Even if Ruiz is clinched he will be 20-25lbs heavier than Joshua on fight night. He is not going to get ragdolled or overpowered.

    Povetkin was 15lbs lighter than Klitschko.

    Like others have said, Joshua isn’t even close to being in Klitschko’s league when it comes to what he did against Povetkin.

    That’s not how he’ll be winning this fight if he does.
