    Yeah these type of gifts don’t come around often from the bookies. The last example I can think of was when the not too sharp masses bet on Connor MacGregor so heavily that he was a slim (as I recall) outsider against money may. I fcking cleaned house on Mayweather KO that night.

    Same scenario here, big Josh has an army of fiercely loyal sky season ticket holders who will have been blindly betting with their proudly resilient sky subscribing hearts making him the strong favourite with the bookies.

    Such insane odds when you observe this rematch rationally and anyone with an ounce of smarts about them NOT lumping big on Ruiz KO is I would go so far to posture destined for a future of disappointment and failure in their general life.

    Getting odds against for a repeat is literally Christmas come early. Act accordingly chaps.

    How did you get it then because those odds sure as hell don't exist now for you to screenshot....

    Why would they exist now when the (first) fight took place 6 months ago.

    Do you agree to pay or have you no honour?

    That's exactly what I just said

    If they don't exist, how did you screen cap it......

    I'd lump a fair few quid on Ruiz Jr except there's a distinct possibility there'll be shenanigans to steal the title.

    I got 5/2 on ruiz about 2 months ago to win by any method. There’s still 11/4 out there for him to win by ko/tko. Can’t see this going any other way

    12/1 for Ruiz to win on points with AJ 3/1 on points. I think they’re a gift. Joshua has done 12 rounds once. Ruiz has done it a few times.

    I just can not believe people are overlooking Ruiz again. Completely miffed with it.

    I’ve had €50 on Ruiz KO at 7/2 a while ago. I want AJ to win and maybe I’m overlooking him but closer the fight has got more I like Ruiz in this one.

    With those odds it’s a sensible bet imo, I just can’t bring myself to pull the trigger.

    Got £50 on the 5/2 ruiz
    Then couple of bets with mates.
    I really can’t see anything other than ruiz. The only small doubt is if it goes distance and judges fiddle it

    I was originally thinking AJ would win this time around, no real logic behind it - just a gut feeling.

    I know you can read into them far too much, but AJ's interviews this time around are just so strange. Seems to be acting very unusually to me, and I thought he was a bit weird anyway. Then again, being branded as invincible for 7 years before being stopped in the manner he was against an opponent it was assumed he'd beat must be hard psychologically.

    I really don't know what to think this time around, really looking forward to the fight. I think Ruiz KO is a very smart bet, especially whilst odds are drifting.

    Under no circumstances is Ruiz getting the cards here.

    I agree, any close rds will more than likely be given to A.j

    Hes still around about the same price you got him at tbh

    You risk twenty to win 50 and bet it 2 months ago

    Bet today

    risk 20 to win 44, only 6 quid difference, negligible unless your lumping on 400 quid or so
