    I feel he has to get off the center line after he punches,but what do forum users think?

    I wouldnt. Id take a couple of other fights to look good in and then go after a big money fight against the winner of DW/Fury 2 and if he wins that look to unify the belts against Ruiz.

    You say that but Ruiz will make adjustments. Ruiz is simply a better boxer than AJ. He will have answers while AJ will run out of ideas quickly.

    That won`t stop him getting countered after he punches though and his power wasn`t missing last time, so he`ll need more than strength and power anyway.

    He doesn't need any changes bc he has a sole focused opponent not ones that run away.

    Ruiz will most likely resemble the mitts Joshua was hitting bf his ring walk ( demolishing job ),if anything he needs to save more energy and reserve the power for the real fight,this comes with experience. Ruiz should never be able to defeat Joshua but one got through.

    AJ vs Ruiz would be the easiest fight in the world ,he wouldnt make it past 6 if I was training Aj, the Ruiz win is like the Honeymooners episode where Ralph knocks out the actual bully fighter in the pool hall not knowing he could punch.

    Aj double triple jab followed by crushing combos this fight goes the way it should have the first time.

    Joshua will win this one and you guys will again have negative thoughts on a superior fighter.

    Id make him run a mile while throwing firecrackers at him everytime he used his ladybody voice. He needs a confident mans voice.

    Then id put him in a pen with a chicken he had to catch, and say "You got to have speed AJ! Got to have speed!"

    Stay on the outside, pump the jab, tie up Ruiz when he tries to close distance. Avoid engaging in a shoot out.

    If Parker can do it then Joshua sure can.

    Cannot train a chin......cannot train heart either.............when the going gets rough he will quit again...he will never go out on his shield...he is mentally shot and instead of a alcoholic seeing white mice running up and down the walls Ruiz occupies his head rent free while he wakes up repeatedly every night in cold sweat from it.

    How I see it.
    Watched highlights again and finally decided to choose: Ruiz wins again.
    It was the 2nd knockdown that I honed in on.

    1st KD, Ruiz seems to defy wisdom-buy time, instead the dog came out and he fought back. IMO can't be taught.

    2nd KD is AJ's turn to hit canvas, he went into survival mode. Thats his instinct then.

    As Ann Wolfe said about Kirkland's new trainers...you can't teach a pitbull to act like a poodle and U damn sure cant teach a poodle to act like a pitbull.
    Aj is an in shape, more powerful, more knowledgeable version of Chazz Witherspoon. But CHazz has a dog in him. Can't teach that.

    AJ at no point in that fight showed menace. He's a boxer, damn good one. But he is a gentleman at heart. Ruiz as quiet as he is, is a fighter who happens to know how to box.
    Klitschko gave AJ time to regroup. Ruiz didn't.
    Unless AJ plays Jab N Grab for 12 rounds...I can't see any training, conditioning, no strategy that will stop the dog inside of Ruiz.

    Or as you said...take him into the deepest ghettos in his country. Sleep on some **** stained mattresses, black n white television with antennas that dont tune in to any one station.
    Talk about his momma to his face, all day and night. Show him footage of his highschool foe that is str8 waxing the azz of the girl he wanted :zlumi:.
    Show the video of him waxing it well:b2:
    That's what I'd focus in on. You know....Give him the Bruce Lee strategy"
    "we need emotional content. Not anger!"
    "It's like a finger pointing to the moon.."
    .then slap him hard.
    "Dont concentrate on the finger or U will miss all that heavenly glory."


    But again, not every person can develop controlled rage late in life.

    Don`t Wilder and Fury live in mansions too though? I thought all heavyweight champs lived in mansions.

    Think AJ`s a bit more skilled than Rocky was.
