    This fight is likely to happen in the near future. Both are with PBC if these two collided who would you favor to win and how?

    likely to happen?

    Wilder would have to agree first and that wont happen.

    Can't see Wilder wanting Ruiz. He's scared of Whyte, and that was before his Fury fights.

    Right now I have to favor Ruiz.
    Wilder's inactivity - not to mention weird excuses for the loss - and clear beat down in Fury 2, don't have good optics.

    What's his top Ws? Oldster Ortiz x2. Like the rest of us, he isn't getting any younger.

    If a fit Ruiz turns up and it then i think he beats Wilder. Wilder should go for Whyte as thats a mich easier fight for him.

    Wilder is getting on now bit power is the last thing to go.

    Ruiz is there to be hit, I don't think he's taking Deontay's power.

    Donkey would be having flashbacks to the last time he fought a fat blob and nearly go ko'd in the first.

    I'd see this fight going pretty similar.

    R1. Wilder showboating the the fat blob landing knocking Donkey down then Donkey in survival mode for the rest of the round.

    R2. Fat Blob no.2 retires on stool because Donkey's team have provided all you can eat vouchers and the local bistro although this fat blob has more expensive tastes so they may have had to throw in some fine scotch whiskey, blow and a couple of hooker to get the deal done again...

    TKO win for Donkey!!!! He's back baby!!!!

    This will be unpopular, but Deontay floors him twice yet takes some heavy shots himself. Wilder by a fairly tight UD, a couple of points to 3 by scorecard. Neither man looks great during this fight.

    Ruiz chin is one of the best in the business, but he's static.

    I think it depends on how much Ruiz wants it. Ortiz really messed up Wilder, if Ruiz can stay in shape and motivated I think he takes it.

    Ruiz can only win one way but its the way Wilder has no answer to.
    Ruiz can get inside and bang away with his fast combinations. Depending how the weight loss effects his endurance and punch resistance he can beat Deontay. Wilders chin is actually decent so I don't see a stoppage. Depending how Ruiz looks Vs Arreola i'd make him favorite
