This is by far the most insightful one that I have seen-
This vid points to the thought that AJ may NEVER cope with Ruiz
Thanks for posting!
Excellent stuff.... pretty much the best breakdown of the fight I've seen....
dont want to be that guy, but, what he describes andy was doing to move aj to his left, is what aj is actually looking for. aj wants to keep andy on the side of the line where his power hand is. the only reason andy was on that side was to throw his left hooks.
Very good analysis. Joshua's footwork was awful.
Parrying can be an effective tool but not when you don't move laterally off it.
Ruiz did an excellent job at moving Joshua to his vulnerable side.
And I have no idea where Joshua's jab went. He started hooking with and falling in behind it because he was not throwing a true jab and falling into the perfect slot for Ruiz's hooks.
AJ was totally different fighter i mean if he faught like he did against parker Ruiz have no chance. It was like he forgot all his boxing IQ in one night. really novice mistakes and boxing from AJ something just wasn't right
No, it wasn’t the right he caught AJ with the Left Hooks! Repeatedly!
Wrong Parker was in chains placed on him by a MR ref, when he fought AJ. Which is why AJ was able to cruise to a decision.
@ 6 mins is when the waffle stops and the analysis begins.
I disagree with the poster above who blames AJ for an "off" night
You are completely disregarding the brilliance of Ruiz's gameplan and boxing skills
But he did. Joshua controlled Ruiz with the jab and he was constantly trying to time Ruiz. Joshua boxed really well. They both did.
But Joshua's biggest flaw was that he stood in front of Ruiz. His head was there for the taking.
And at the end of the sixth, Joshua stopped controlling Ruiz with the jab and Ruiz started lighting him up. Which was pretty much the end of it.
Same **** nearly cost him vs Whyte. Joshua just stood in front of Whyte with no head movement, threw punches and got cracked! He did the same with Takam, Parker, Wlad... He has always had this flaw.
The above vid makes the point that Ruiz took away Joshua's jab.
I agree with the vid
