    Could he deal with the pressure or would he fold like the bodybhilder

    Why would a guy never once on the floor "fold up"?

    Vitali would beat the brakes off Ruiz

    Unlike Joshua, Vitali would use his massive height advantage, box him at range and use that lean back defence very effectively.

    It will be very similar to the Sanders fight. Sanders also had great hand speed, was taller than Ruiz, hit harder, had a good chin. He pressurised Vitali early on (and in my opinion scored a genuine knockdown), however Vitali's size advantage won him the fight.

    I'm going for a late knockout victory for Vitali or a very comfortable points decision.

    Sanders is a good compare. Vits weathered his early storm and wore him down.

    He wouldn't, Ruiz has too much brute strength, power and the famed ''Mexican style''. Ruiz cannot be defeated.

    I don’t think Sanders had the ring IQ and skill of Ruiz. Conditioning too.

    See Vitali vs. Kirk Johnson for what Vitali does against blubber men with fast hands. Vitali is awkward, tall, busy, mobile, and has a phenomenal chin. He's all wrong for Andy.

    Ruiz would need to come in much lighter to stand a chance against Vitali, since unlike Joshua Vitali loved circling and slowly breaking down short heavy guys. At 268 lbs like he was against Joshua Ruiz would get stopped against Vitali.

    Ruiz now is getting more overrated than tyson in his prime . Joshua will beat him in the rematch and I’m 99% sure Vitali wouldn’t need a rematch as he would beat short fatso to the pulp. Similar to what he did to areola.
