    Listen you are so up Joshua`s arse you will never change your mind.At least i don`t lie when stating my case unlike you.That is a sure sign of a man who is delusional so i will not debate with you no more even though i expect a pathetic response

    What are you getting so mad about? If you say someone is winning a fight just because they hit harder then obviously people are gonna disagree

    Holding on is part of the sport

    Bruno took some heavy shots thst would certainly have knocked out many other heavyweights that night

    Now I'm not saying his chin was great but it did ok that first night

    "Looked" but he wasn't. He looked good because he fought literal tin cans before the Ruiz fight. Some of Arreolas worst opponents we've ever seen. He has already lost to Kownacki, got toyed with by Wilder, got a gift against bum Kassi, went life and death with obese journeyman Curtis Harper, lost to Stiverne the first fight. Got utterly destroyed the second fight, and has a few other embarrassing performances if you need more context.

    I see what your trying to do, trying to make it like Arreola has improved immensely. He hasn't improved at all. He was low grade in his prime years with his best win being a loss against Tomas Adamek and he's abysmal now. Arreola is a fossil, no good, shot, chinny, has no wins of note, and would get utterly humiliated by a real top 15 fighter, he didn't even look good in the Ruiz fight. At ALL, Ruiz just looked horrible because he's not as good as you believe him to be

    but because he was in better shape :eek: this MUST mean Arreola has gotten way better !!!! This must mean Arreola is much better than we thought !!!

    Lol no Arreola is SH*T

    That version of Klitschko is better than old Holmes but Ruiz is not better than Mccall. Beating Old Holmes and stopping pre prime Lewis in 2 > beating Joshua. Joshua is not some ATG. As a matter of fact a prime Povetkin beats Joshua. He's a top contender in an era that might be weaker than the Klitschko era considering old contenders fighters from the Klitschko era were top 10 and gave other current top 10 fighters trouble

    There’s literally nothing you can say that’ll convince me that McCall is better than Ruiz

    Even if Ruiz got his ass beat by Kabayel, schooled and dropped by shot David Haye, brutally KO'd by Wilder, goes 12 with a 0-20 Journeyman, humiliated by Hughie Fury, destroyed by Joyce, beaten by shopworn Chisora, outboxed by Jonathan Rice, and retired by a 46 year old comback Povetkin, you'd still be blabbering about "but he beat AJ tho"

    Maybe Ruiz does beat Mccall, maybe he just had a bad night against the shot and pathetic fossil remains Arreola, I would certainly like to see him in top fights if he certainly is much better than i believe him to be. We'll see. He fights Ortiz next am i correct ? Ortiz went life and death with mid tier journeyman Charles Martin and got dropped twice, once by a jab. Lets see if he deals with Ortiz quickly and in dominant fashion as he should if he's a real top 10 fighter.

    AJ is the better all around boxer, if you can call it that. Both stiff as a board. Although if the two of them fought i would fancy Bruno to knock the snot out of Josh.
