    Don't they have buffets in the UK? Go to a few and select a dozen of the "regulars". They will be easy enough to spot. Hire those that are aggressive and feisty......and fat.

    Parker for the handspeed, Povetkin for the combos, maybe Hunter for the size and counterpunching?

    Parker is a former world champion. I doubt he’s looking to pick up a few extra bucks sparring

    Preferably someone that is feather fisted and isn't going to beat him up before fight night. That rules out the likes of Dubois, Price and the other 2 fighters that laid the bodybuilder out cold. Lol.

    Malignaggi, so the punch power isn't too much for him.

    I would say he needs an undefeated cruiserweight fighter, with incredible knockout power, like Jorge Kahwagi.
    He has a 100% KO record.

    The power at around the 2:40 mark is unbelievable. The relentless go-forward will emulate Ruiz Jr. and he is also Mexican and has similar sized mammaries to Ruiz

    I like these thoughts, but at the end of it there's really no one to match Ruiz Jr all that well. Maybe Hunter Jr is the best as the most skilled in countering.

    Parker: has the handspeed to (nearly) match Ruiz, but when he gets tagged he retreats and then comes again. When Ruiz gets hit he immediately fires back.

    Povetkin: much slower, throws his left hook quite differently to Ruiz.

    Hunter and Parker for speed.

    Parker and hunter would be ideal but wouldn’t happen. Takam because of his size, doesn’t have the hand speed but he’s fit and strong.

    Dave Allen..... easily available, tough as old boots with a great chin so won't call off after a tough day, decent left hook - especially to the body - and probably needs the money I would suspect.
