    AJ is better than Briggs.

    McCall is the obvious one. Titanium jaw.

    No Ruiz has a tighter defense than Briggs, his guard was wide open and his punches weren`t as tight as Povetkin`s or Ruiz`s, he had dreadful fundamentals and never beat a fighter rated in the ring mags top 10 when he beat them, Foreman was way too old when Briggs beat him.

    McCall was out-boxed by Bruno, he hardly landed a punch in that bout, he had awful fundamentals, all he had was a good chin and power.

    Dont tell me you actually think this ? The fight would be competitive but Aj hasn't shown anything that suggests he could beat prime Lennox Lewis. As soon as Lewis lands the same uppercut he did on Vitali and Grant its over

    Bruno outboxed everyone he ever fought bar Tyson Mark, Bruno’s jab controlled all of them until the inevitable. Witherspoon Lewis, Bonecrusher all lost majority of the rounds until the big punch come

    Not having a dig at Joshua, but I’d expect him to be petrified of getting in with a prime Lewis. The difference in mental strength an iq is huge, then you have the natural strength and power too. Lewis would rag him

    Can we please stop this narrative that AJ is mentally fragile and scared of his opponents. Like literally he got straight back in with the man who knocked him out and everyone was calling him a hypejob who got exposed for months and he still rose to the occasion and put on a good performance.

    He wanted the ref to pull him in the Ruiz fight, he thought he could have a timeout to recover

    Fought the guy and beat him in the rematch when so many people were telling him to not fight him again and so many were telling him he was gonna get KO’d again. Also Wilder pulled that same stunt successfully against Ortiz.

    Got on his bike against an unmotivated fat Ruiz. He was given the belts back

    Pack it in. You have your bias but don’t take the **** like it’s an easy thing to do and go in there and do what AJ has done which is outbox a man who recently knocked him out in front of millions of people.

    Honestly, Lewis lays AJ out cold from 1-4
