    I cannot see anything but a brutal KO in this fight.

    Ruiz has no head movement and is a KO waiting to happen. He has a good chin but wont last against Wilder.

    But then again if Ruiz pulls this off, he'll have moved right into the top 3-4 and will be ready to challenge for the title.

    Given how much punishment Wilder has taken in his last two fights I would favor Ruiz, but this is a fight where anything is possible.

    Ruiz actually has boxing skill... bronze bomber gonna be swinging like a tiger woods trying to catch the marshmallow man hahaha jokes aside. Even Ruiz would run rings against Wilder.

    Wilder took so much damage and is 36, he might be past his best. Ruiz can get dropped but he seems to have good recovery, although he was overhyped I wouldn't be surprised if Wilder gets ko'd

    Ruiz is a different man at the moment. He's not half the man he used to be against Joshua 1. His fight against Arreola was terrible. I think Wilder would KO him within half one.

    I think wilder was all wrong for Ruiz
    It all Depends how much he has left after those 2 savage busted ear drum type of beat downs.

    Even now There is a strong chance Wilder KOs him.
    It would be a good name for a comeback fight for sure.

    I’d pay good money to watch it.

    Ruiz has to show me something in his next fight. He looked real average against Arreola. I dont like that he made such a drastic change after the 2nd AJ fight. All he had to do was control his weight and he would've been fine

    Ruiz by KO or by stoppage early rounds. Ruiz is tough, much more skilled, has extremely quick hands, will be landing that hook every time he throws against Wilder non existent defence and will putting Wilder on back foot (which renders him useless as we have seen).

    I’d watch this one for sure. No need for judges, this would be a slugfest and would not last long. Fat Andy can bang and I wouldn’t sleep on him. We know Wilder can punch as well as anyone.

    Classic HW throw down! If either guy connects with his best shot, it could be all over. Wilder is longer but Fat Andy is a better boxer. Technically Andy has a better win on his record because he KO’d AJ but Wilder has more KO’s and had knocked out a string of HWs before running into Fury. Not sure who would win but I’m certain I’d want to watch it.

    Andy’s toughest opponent might be diabetes if he doesn’t get his weight in check. Wilder’s toughest opponent might be mental illness with lack of boxing skills a close second. They need to schedule this before I lose interest.

    Finally these guys are fighting! One loss is all it takes, then we get the real fights!

    Same reason Canelo was the one to go after GGG and fight better opposition in a a single year than some guys he faced did up to age 30.

    Also why I was pretty excited for Teofimo to lose, hope Haney loses his zero too. We could a classic era once the hope of retiring 50-0 goes away.
