    Ruiz tries to get inside, Foreman use his sheer strength to push him back and hit him at will with the telephone pole jab that are hard enough to score a KD over Andy, who hit the canvas hard enough to convince the referee to stops the fight.

    Looks like Ruiz’s prime was his one fight win against Joshua and that’s it.

    Knowing the current state of this forum, swarming Ruiz would KO iron jawed Foreman within 3 rounds

    Foreman by decapitation. In all seriousness, I like Ruiz. He has some fast hands and is talented but Foreman is on another level. Terrible matchup for Ruiz.

    Andy is always game.

    And that fits right into George's wheelhouse.

    Ruiz who was dropped twice by 40yr old Areola?
    Prime Foreman would get arrested after the fight for child abuse.
    Hell so would old Foreman vs prime Ruiz.

    I would say the 48 year old Foreman that beat Briggs would knock out Ruiz. Ruiz isn't that good. He beat Anthony Joshua. Anthony Joshua's best win came against a old shot Wladimir Klitschko.

    Ruiz by tko.

    Foreman would be giving up 35-40 pounds to a guy who gets stronger as the fight goes on. Ruiz is faster, better schooled, and head and shoulders more durable than Foreman. Ruiz also has the highest level win between the two.

    Foreman didn't win a fight over 12 rounds until he got a gift against Axel Schultz.

    What happens here is that Foreman fails to stop Ruiz, and by the mid to late er rounds can barely stand on his own volition.

    Prime Foreman walks all over Ruiz, the ref mercifully stops it in 3. The Holyfield George gets played with a bit, catches Ruiz with a monster shot, then (being a far better finisher than Joshua) does him in...maybe 8 rounds (I'm being kind).

    Is there any reason to favour Ruiz?
