    Job done and on we move

    Boxed ever so well even though it was not eye catching

    I was impressed with the disipline and the jab was the key to victory

    Ruiz - I put too much weight on and didn’t train that hard. No **** Sherlock!!!

    Now he has another few million in the bank I doubt we ever see the bloke under 300lbs again, if ever in the ring

    I think you’re right about the rematch. Joshua adapted in the rematch whereas Ruiz didn’t. He brought more of the same. It was a bit Leonard vs Duran 2 in a way because one needed to exchange to have a chance of winning, the other used their boxing IQ, footwork and speed. He used all 22 feet of that ring.

    Fight summed up in five points:

    Joshua boxed well, that was the predictable game plan and worked. Helped enormously by Ruiz’ condition.

    Ruiz disgraced himself with his shape. He’s not a body beautiful but the numbers on the scales were alarming and played out in the ring. He deserves all the criticism he gets.

    Zero chance of an immediate rematch. No point and won’t sell. Ruiz has a great chin, Joshua hit him flush in 12 and didn’t budge him. AJ won’t want to have to fight like that again and that’s close to the only way he can beat Ruiz.

    Joshua needs to stay at this weight. Will be difficult to beat. That roided up physique offers no value.

    Ruiz may never fight again. Fat mess tonight, talented but doesn’t care enough and earnt shed loads. Won’t get to face AJ again imo, so where will they slot him in? Maybe Wilder with the Hayman link up but when will that be and what shape will he be in then?! He’ll be 350 pounds by the end of Christmas!

    Congrats to AJ, boxed very well and stayed cool throughout. He's back and Eddie's golden goose still has a few more golden eggs in him yet.

    Ruiz let himself down, biggest fight of his life and he didn't train or prepare properly (?), if he doesn't get a trilogy and the payday that comes with it only got himself to blame, baffling really what must have been going through his head the last few months.

    It's a chess match. He can't stand in the pocket taking Ruiz's special combinations. That would be daft.

    I read on here that Joshua doesn’t have a jab.

    Ruiz said he didn't want to give excuses...then gave some.

    I didn't expect it to go quite like that but a Parker type performance would always give him a chance and so it proved.

    Joshua hinted at there is excuses for the first fight but he'll wait until his career is done. Until then it'll just be a weird blip in his career so far.

    That was a very good performance from Joshua, a vast improvement on last time.
    I was much expecting a better, more violent, fight than that though. I thought Joshua's jab was absolutely superb but the running around the ring was a bit excessive for my liking.
    Having said that, I think Joshua should stay ar 237 or thereabouts and continue to box like that when he can. It's difficult to beat a man who does that.
