    Very interesting fight for me based on styles that both of those guys have.

    I can't pick winner.

    Who do you think wins this and why ?

    Is this an actual fight being lined up? If so Joyce by UD, with a bunch of idiots going with Ruiz because he has "way faster hands".

    Joyce easy UD . Jab jab jab Ruiz is done . Ruiz doesn't have the pop to trouble the juggernaut or the boxing accument to win decision.

    If Ruiz comes in shape he stops him late or gets a split decision. If not Joyce wins via UD.

    I’ll watch this one if it happens. Hope Andy gets in better shape. Both guys are likable and Joyce will probably follow the AJ blueprint from the second fight. Hope he doesn’t because it was boring. I want to see a slugfest.

    Not a bad fight, Ruiz takes it by a close hard fought decision.

    Depends on Joyce's approach. If he respects Ruiz he'll box behind the jab like he did vs Dubois and win a one sided decision as Ruiz isn't going to be able to cut the ring effectively enough vs Joyce.

    But if Joyce fights him like he did Takam then we could have a crowd pleasing fight as Joyce isn't hard to hit when he's that aggressive and will no doubt be met by fast counters by Ruiz. Still think Joyce wins but Ruiz will have his moments. But in the end he won't be able to put enough pressure on Joyce to get a stoppage and he'll just get out worked and will probably tire later on as Joyce doesn't give Ruiz time to breath with his never ending punches.

    Joyce by UD, possible stoppage. Joyce's best two attributes are kryptonite to fast hands. A superior jab that breaks the rhythm of combinations and the type of chin that can withstand multiple combination shots.

    At this point, there aren't a whole lot of people I'd pick to beat Solomon Grundy. Fury, Usyk, Hunter, that's about it.

    What I saw in the ring with Arreola has a good chance of getting stopped by Joyce

    Hard to gauge Ruiz given his inactivity and less than scintillating last fight. Joyce UD or late ko.
