    Can AJ beat Andy Ruiz by making adjustments?

    Stopped watching at: 'I think Joshua performed way better than in this fight than I thought he was going to'....

    Not if he goes in with the same strategy from the first fight. And I'm not certain how he lost and was blown out can be corrected in between the timeframe it takes going into an immediate rematch. If it's not a razor thin fight, immediate rematches are usually a bad idea.

    Unless Joshua has some sort of permanent neurological or psychological issue,he can and will win the rematch. It will be Lewis-Rahman II all over again.

    Ruiz is quicker than Rahman was.

    With his punching power that's a possibility.
    But Hasim Rahman beat Lewis by one-punch KO really. Before the final blow it was anyone's fight. Lewis was in bad shape and clowning around too.

    Ruiz-Joshua looked very different. Ruiz beat him up for several rounds and broke him down and Joshua was in fine shape. It looked like Ruiz had his number.

    Ruiz landed less than 9 punches per round. Hardly what I would call an awe-inspiring performance. That fight was much more about Joshua fighting poorly than it was about Ruiz fighting well.

    Joshua has stylistic flaws of crouching down with his hands stuck to his face like Tyson. This man is 6 ft 6 he is bringing his head into range where he should be using his height jab and movement. He got into trouble in the povetkin fight doing the same thing. This is mckrackens fault. If joshua took george foreman up on his offer to advise him this would be what he would fix as he always talked about how tall fighters shouldnt be bringing their heads down or bobbing and weaving.

    Has it occurred to you that Ruiz made AJ fight "poorly".........and made him ultimately quit and quit he did.

    If Ruiz would have been stopped in the 3rd you would scream on top of your lungs what great performance AJ pulled out.......the fact is starting from round one is that Ruiz walked him down from the start, put him on the back foot, put non stop pressure on him, out traded and out gutted him and exposed AJ's chin as pure glass......Fact.

    My point is that both men performed poorly. When the winning fighter averages less than 9 punches per round over 7 rounds, that is a poor show of skill all around.

    Nonsense. Ruiz is far more complete than Rahman and actually broke Joshua down, something Rahman never did against Lewis.

    Joshua can win if he circles to the right and fights extremely cautiously. He won’t look good doing it though.

    AJ landed less than 9 punches per round because he couldn`t get Ruiz out of position, Lewis easily caught Rahman out of position, because he had bad fundamentals.
