    I attribute blubber butts win over AJ to either 1) AJ throwing the fight ( to get a big money rematch/ betting against himself for mega bucks) , 2) having a nervous breakdown of some sort, or 3) not being able to be on steroids as the fight was in USA which affected his physicality or confidence

    and yes the division does suck but Fury vs AJ would be a blockbuster especially for UK fans. Would be great in a massive stadium there

    His chin won the fight against AJ so there's every reason to assume his chin will win other fights. He can bang too, and has the heart of a lion. Weight doesn't mean anything to be frank.

    Triangle theories do not always apply.

    Joshua would obliterate Arreola within one round and most people here know it.

    Styles make fights.

    Ruiz had an off night. It happens, and Arreola fought hard with pride. That combo led to an underwhelming performance by Ruiz.

    I haven't watched this fight yet.
    I'm shocked to hear Ruiz struggled.

    The same Stervine that got TKO'd by Joe Joyce and Trevor Bryan ? Sure lets say Stervine is world class LOL. Regardless Aj has a better resume and has beaten significantly better opponents

    Like 10 years later. Are you a total novice? You do know that age and form matter more.

    But Stirvine has beaten nobody of note besides overrated Arreola. Joshuas has beaten Pulev, Whyte, Povetkin and Klitschko. 3 of those fighters were past it no lie but they're still top 10-15 fighters so it doesn't really matter in terms of resume.

    Ruiz took his first 12 round beating against Joshua. Some fighters aren't quite the same, when they get hit by a tonne of shots. Stiverne was similar in the first 12 rounds against Deontay. Sam Peter's punch resistance went down after Wlad 1. Arreola against Vitali, was never the same. Just another short fat blob like plodder with weight problems and decreased punch resistance. I said before this will be a black mark on the bodybuilders record losing to him.

    It could be because Ruiz lost a lot of weight but it could also be the fact that Aj's power is overrated. Joshua had to stop a 80 year old Wladimir Klitschko on his feet. The same Klitschko that has been brutally sparked out 3 times in the past. Joshua's power simply just isn't all it's cracked out to be.

    Arreola deserves a lot of credit here.
    He's way past his best but he's clearly serious and in shape.
    Makes you wonder how good he could have been if he hadn't been so heavy in his prime.

    Ruiz looked okay in the 2nd half of the fight.

    Fury ran and landed nothing more than a flicking jab.

    AJ came to fight.

    I personally believe it was #3.
