    That's just a fact. Fury's claim to fame is dancing to a decision against Wlad and getting up against Wilder.

    Ruiz completely destroyed Anthony Joshua.

    Let's not sit here and pretend that Fury is in some way the best HW in the world, because that is disingenuous.

    Even if you were dead right, it still wouldn't change that Fury would win a wide UD over Ruiz if/when the fight ever happens

    Oh you mean the AJ that almost got dropped by whyte, the AJ that got dropped and almost lost to klitschko (who tyson schooled beforehand) or you mean the AJ that povetkin rocked. Other fighters laid the blueprint to beating AJ, where is the blueprint to beat tyson, klitschko unbeaten in a decade. Fury schooled him, wilder 40-39kos, fury schooled him after a 3 year cocaine binge and also climbed off the deck to do it.

    The difference between fury and ruiz jnr. Fury would beat AJ and woulsnt lose to parker in the process. Your a ****ing idiot to suggest andy ruiz is above tyson in any way at all.

    You sure about that? How many times has Fury been on the canvas? A LOT.

    Lol, this Fury would have repeated what Ruiz did against AJ, skillswise he is multiple levels above AJ who only has a punchers chance sadly speaking. AJ's chin is so weak, il bet Tyson will floor him with his jabs

    Meh.

    Fury is a defensive boxer, and his performances are not inherently exciting. No offense to you personally, but I always tell people that if you want every fight to be a bloodbath, go watch ultimate bar fighting.

    Fury unseated a two-time titlist with 23 defenses. Ruiz unsteated a guy with 6 defenses, a couple of them a bit dodgy, with help from the ref. An even older, more stale version of WladKlit than the one Fury beat gave Joshua all he could handle, so I would say fury's win was head and shoulders better.

    Fury also has a few decent supporting wins, such as ChisoraX2, Cunningham, Johnson (when he could still fight) and Hammer, which has NOT been to date overturned. Ruiz has Dimentrenko and very shot versions of Johnson and Liakovich.

    I would say Fury comfortably.

    None of this, but he way, is any disrespect to Ruiz or Joshua. It is just that they have a lot to prove.

    You sure Fury would beat AJ? Fury sure seems intent on tasting the canvas quite a bit. Nothing Fury has done is as impressive as what Ruiz did against Joshua. Joshua was a 30-1 favorite on some sites.

    If he's such a defensive boxer, then how come he's been knocked down so many times?

    Well... he is the best in the world, to me, because he beats everyone else if the fights get made.

    Ruiz has the single best win of the two though, yes.

    Boxing is not all about slugfests, i want fighters to display their skillsets and quality. With Fury you will get boxing skills and his unique skillset of fighting orthodox, then quickly switching to south paw, people underestimate how badly it confuses the opponent in the ring, Wladimir Klitshko was not confused against him in the ring for nothing
