    But Joshua has fought mobile smaller fighters and struggled. Ruiz KOd him and he was very wary vs Parker.
    Usyk is a leftie, fast hands good power and well schooled. He's very good technically. Watch him adapt v Bellew and once the opening preseted itself it was game over.

    Ruiz isn't all that powerful but he does have fast hands and throws with volume when you see him on the pads you can see how many years hes put into boxing its all very fluid.
    Usyk might actually hit harder than Ruiz....all though thats to be seen but again you can tell how much training OU has put in. The one weakness Usyk might have is that he's hittable but even so I can see him looking a very solid fighter at heavy weight and he has the experience, style and skill to give people real problems. His record and who he has beaten at crusier is superb. Hes cleaned the divison out.

    He will be very interesting to watch at heavy.. I can see him giving AJ fits,

    Watched this again today in full.. Usyk has the potential to clean up the division and cause everyone problems. Joyce is a spectacular KO loss waiting to happen

    Bad news for Joshua, a fight like this is going to have to be something like 6-8am local time to bring in the big US TV $.

    For a guy who likes his home comforts it's going to be a problem.

    Money talks BS walks

    I am pretty sure this will be a massive stitch up ....I think Ruiz would have had better shake of it in Cardiff than out there v Femi

    I'm sure they've been through the figures and the extra $ they're getting guaranteed from Saudi outweighs what the US TV $ would bring in.
    Its still prime time for UK PPV and may even beat the Klitschko fight a couple of years ago, so >1.5m buys.

    This reeks of investors ****ting their pants and wanting the biggest cash out possible just in case he doesn't win.

    Hearn has confirmed it’s in Saudi on his Twitter.

    What a complete farce for both the UK and US fans.

    It’s half amazing being in such an iconic place and venue. Like the the rumble in the jungle in some senses. But then being in such a corrupt place full of absolute ****s and the blood money funding it makes it a shame.
