    If AJ is presumably planning on moving and boxing for 12 rounds think that's the wrong strategy, Ruiz showed in the first fight his timing, handspeed and skill is good enough to close the distance, he was outjabbing AJ even before the 3rd round. Think a better strategy would be to take the centre of the ring, impose himself and try to push Ruiz onto the backfoot, a risky strategy for sure but I just can't see AJ managing to keep his chin untouched for 12 rounds on the outside, Ruiz is too good for that.

    Anyone seen the vid where a.j & ruiz are stood together and A.j asks ruiz " what's the way to beat you" ruiz answers "box me off."
    Quite a bizarre question I thought from A.J.
    Shows a lack of confidence.

    AJ discusses the conversation here. This is a very insightful video from the fighters meeting earlier today

    Wants to hold middle of ring and keep distance? Think he’ll be on the back foot straight away

    Well you write a convinving a post mate, unfortunately I can never be convinced because I know olympic teams, and football players and long distance runners, and power lifters all destroy their bodies day in and day out....and still come back the next day having to do it all over again.

    I never look forward to going to the gym because I destroyed my body the last time and now I have to do more than I did last time.. otherwise I am not progressing... so mentally Im hesistant but I get right into it day in and day out.

    Ask ANY professional fighter in the UNIVERSE... and they will say that fight night is a walk in the park compared to training camp

    FIGHT NIGHT IS NOTHING... they smile on that day... that is the day they are least worried about because all the hard work and grafting was done in the gym... where fights are won.

    So if you think AJ has a tough night on fight night... then you've never seen what they go through on training camps... day in and day out for weeeks upon weeks... some sparring is as tough or tougher than fight night.

    How hard do you train twenty? How often have you pushed your body to its limits and did it again and again the next day? Because ive been there... and only warriors can show up consistently the next day... and we dont lose anything "or a piece of us" because we have to be better than we were yesterday and last week and last year.

    Nobody moved forward by "losing parts of them" along the way.

    Significant size change, looking less bulked and buff

    looks like he has lost ten pounds of muscle and around 235 pounds

    Hate to say it after being excited for so long but this has run, tie up, nick a controversial decision with help from the ref throughout written all over it.

    Joshua looked tiny at the press conference before. Not pumped up full of juice any more. His head looked massive on his body.

    You had some of the anti matchroom brigade call Parker vs AJ exactly that but in reality it was comfortable win for AJ who fought more cautious fight than he had before and some may argue he dispalyed more ring IQ than he had done before.

    I acknowledged the training camp in my post where I said they get the crap beaten out of them in the training camp for 12 weeks.

    We’ll have to agree to disagree.
