    If Ruiz wins the rematch against Joshua, Usyk should move up to HW and fight him. Who wins?

    Usyk UD 12, it would look a lot like Parker vs. Ruiz, only with Usyk would get hit a clean, a lot less.

    The only way anyone will beat Usyk is with power which is something Ruiz doesn't have enough of...

    Usyk UD 12...

    Excellent match-up for Usyk, he will UD Ruiz Jr quite easily at the end of his jab, he won't be tempted to slug it out.

    Styles make fights so Usyk beats Ruiz via decision.

    Usyk. And, it probably wouldn't look particularly difficult.

    The heavy weight division is so open right now that Usyk can take a couple of belts. It would be harder for him in Lewis or Klitschko eras.
    I dont see him beating prime Lewis or Prime Klitschkos.

    Usyk is the naturally bigger man and a superior boxer. the only question is, how will he deal with that blubber suffocating him in clinches, the swinging rolls of fat operating as feints every time Ruiz throws. Even finding Ruiz's chin can be difficult at times, when he tucks it it's like a turtle withdrawing its head.

    Right, Usyk doesn't want a fight like Ruiz till he's acclimated to the heavies.
