    The best, was everyone thinking they were announcing the Wembley date the next day and it turned out to be The Who.

    I enjoyed that

    Joshua only wins if he makes it boring, jab constantly, odd 1-2 or uppercut to keep Ruiz away. He can't win if he tries to punch with him. The Punches that put Ruiz down in the first fight should have his taken his head off but he wasn't even hurt really.

    Could the reason be a lack of juice behind the punches?

    maybe. just can't see Joshua knocking him out, Ruiz took his best punches and got knocked down but wasn't really fazed.

    He tried to get on his bike and do that and it didn't work at all lol.

    He's up **** Creek, he has no method to victory whatsoever.

    Outboxed, out fought, out hearted, out chinned and out punched.

    This rematch is folly and I guarantee you the day after it takes place everyone will be saying "why the HELL did they go back for a second course of that"

    In actual fact I'm convinced AJ is going to get "an injury" in sparring which will put him out for 9 months or more. They will hope the belts fragment and they can call in a favour and get Pulev for the vacant IBF next year or something.

    Well I pretty much agree with you I wasn't suggesting it's likely he'll win, but I don't think it's impossible. Ruiz isn't Hercules incarnate.
    Joshua has the physical tools to beat Ruiz, just needs more stamina. He just doesn't seem to have it mentally

    Rice Pudding Ruiz Jnr has confirmed the rematch is NOT in the UK - don't blame him after the Whyte PED and Gloves issues.

    The rematch clause was triggered around 9 weeks ago. That’s a long time to be still sorting this fight.
