    After Ruiz jr was knocked down and got up, Joshua hits him with a monster right and Captain Snickers walks through it like it was nothing. Video below fast forward to about 1:05. Now the questions:



    1: If he has a great chin, why did the left hook drop him?
    2: Is he just susceptible to the left?
    3: What other heavyweights could have eaten that and kept going the way he did.

    I’m not a Ruiz Jr. fanboy nor Joshua’s but I can’t stop trying to figure that out. Thank you in advance for keeping it civil.

    It's the power of the snickers.

    Because he was throwing his own punch and didn't see the left coming. He was both leveraging his own weight into Joshuas punch and was on his ass before he realised he'd been hit 'The one you don't see hurts the most' . It's why you could sucker punch someone and knock them out easier than if they see it coming

    In fact, the exact same thing is what leads to Joshua getting sphagetti legged a few seconds later, he's throwing a combo to finish Ruiz and turns his body into a hook he doesn't see

    Bottom line, Jr fired back every time Joshua landed and he couldn't cope with the speed and power of the Snickers Destroyer.

    The right hand was lunging and Joshua own body dips with the punch , he doesn't actually get the full shoulder behind it like he could have.

    The left hook was two punches , a middle right uppercut to lign up the head to set up a power hook which was more compact than the following right after the knockdown that the force just blew Ruiz over .

    Ruiz,was only hit with one combo the entire fight that was the one that knocked him down , he also didn't get the power uppercut. Chances are Ruiz won't take these shots should AJ pick.him apart and add more combos and tags him with his best shot.

    The hook had good leverage.

    I don't think Joshua gets the power on his extended shots due to his flexibility issues. He is a better puncher inside with hooks and uppercuts. That's why the more cautious post-Wladimir AJ has looked far less imposing. He has one shot power but not at a cautious range, unlike Lennox or Wladimir.

    This would be an important point against Wilder, also, who would try to keep the fight at range and has dynamic outside power. Joshua could get a KO over him by erasing that distance. It's still a great matchup in spite of it all.

    Ruiz is trickier for him because Joshua doesn't have the option to adopt a more aggressive style. He has to stay where he's less effective. But I think Ruiz is wildly overrated and Joshua can win a patchy, dangerous UD.

    Ruiz is not overrated

    He could do it all over again

    He has terribly slow feet, and for a short HW that's even worse. He's the same guy who lost to Parker, tho he deserves all credit for the Joshua KO.

    He’s not that slow, but you’re right, he’s the same guy from the Parker fight. Parker took him seriously because Ruiz got the better of him in sparring, AJ didn’t take Ruiz serious at all.

    Joshua needs and answer for Ruiz right hands and how fast they come if they hurt Joshua. If he can nullify that right and he uses his jab, he can win the fight no problem. That Ruiz right comes fast in succession with momentum. Joshua might have to hurt him early and end it early.

    I wrote a detailed breakdown of that sequence, and the rest of the fight here.

    Long story short, right uppercut set up the hook. Picked Ruiz head up from behind his high guard and left him open for the hook. More a credit to Aj's offense than a failure of chin.
