    I wish to obtain a greater understanding why Joshua lost, considering it's unfathomable that the new Mohamed Ali/Tyson hybrid could ever lose

    Some of the excuses I've heard so far, which all sound plausible btw

    • Panic Attack
    • Mental illness triggered from somewhere
    • Being forced to fight against his will! by use of the crack and the whip
    • Before the fight he was approached by the Mexican Cartel who gave him the bruises which we saw him blame the physio on and was coerced into throwing the fight in the 7th
    • Mouth piece was too tight, which is why he was chewing on it and it effected his breathing during the fight which is why he wasn't his usual self

    • Chewing his mouthpiece during the introductions was conclusive evidence for a diagnosis of concussion, overriding the opinions of the doctors who conducted his pre-fight physical.
    • Knocked out in sparring was still concussed and the on n site doing pre-medical checks were on the Al Haymon's pay roll and gave him the all clear
    • Had a 24 hour chest surgery operation a few nights before the fight and was left with scars on his pectorals. He also had to take left a long half life anesthetic, which carried over into the fight that made him dizzy and disoriented and meant he wasn't able to throw his signature punches in combinations
    • Eddie Hearn drugged him up in the dressing to in order to build more revenue for the rematch.
    Anymore that I've missed?

    • All night parties leading into the fight
    • Eye stye/flu
    • Not having access to PED's
    • Underestimating the little fat Mexican

    David Haye stamped on his toe before he got in the ring, then the toe was injured further when Ruiz stepped on his foot mid way through the 3rd with all of his lovely 268 snickers ridden blubber coming down on AJ`s charismatic toe, AJ showed the same heart as Ali in the Rumble in the jungle just to carry on limping around the ring!

    Funny thing, Baby Miller would have pulled the trick too......high guard high workrate good chin, the Bodybuilder might have crumbled quicker.

    Ruiz is a million times quicker than Miller and punches far harder, AJ would have destroyed him and so would Parker and Ruiz.

    No excuses needed. He loss to the better man, Joshua does not have the hunger anymore. He has made about $75 million before taxes with his last 3 or 4 fights. He has a chance to come back but how bad does he really want it? Reminder that Ruiz has never ever had a million dollars and this was his chance to advance and he took it. He must have been playing the 8Mile soundtrack in the dressing room while eating tortas, he was not messing around.

    He must really be kicking himself for taking PEDs and losing out on his chance to get this win. Ruiz ate from the signing of the contract until 5 minutes to the ring and dominated after a knock down.

    If he didn`t have access to PEDS then why was his body the same and if his body was just as muscular what difference does PEDS make, all it does is give a fighter a better ability to lift weights, it gives you a quicker recovery time when you train so you can train harder, from AJ`s body you could tell he trained like a dog.

    He’ll be fine. He just gotta get back into his old routine again and head off back to Dubai again where he can get back on his bike and do all the warm weather training that had served him so well in the past. Forget about all the training in Miami where all eyes and attention was on him all the time. Back in Dubai without all the prying eyes on him all the time, he can build himsel up again and it won’t be long before he’s raring to get back in the ring again. Plus if the rematch is scheduled for the UK, then that’s gotta be another safety blanket for someone who clearly didn’t enjoy the whole experience of fighting out of the UK for the first time in his career without all the benefits and comforts of home.

    Nobody on team AJ is making excuses. Its the boxing community which keeps coming up with these ridiculous theories.

    You think cyclists take Peds so they can put muscle on?

    The Drake curse, except that one isn't taken seriously whereas these others are dead serious.
