    Who's the best/worst of the upcoming 3 heavyweight opponents for Joshua, Fury and Wilder?

    Breazeale
    20-1, 18KO's, 2nd titleshot, 1st TKO7 loss vs Joshua (IBF).
    Ruiz Jr
    32-1, 21KO's, 2nd titleshot, 1st MD12 loss vs Parker (WBO).
    Schwarz
    24-0, 16KO's. Current WBO incontinental.

    Forget about the odds because of who they're fighting, just who's the best between those guys in general.

    I think Ruiz and Breazeale both handily beat Schwarz.

    As for Ruiz Vs Breazeale... I think Ruiz is the better boxer and Breazeale is tougher and will be in the fight all the way to a close UD loss.

    Ruiz jr is narrowly the best opponent but wilder - Breazeale is easily the best fight. All 3 have zero chance of the upset in my opinion. Wilder would be the closest and I literally just can’t see him losing.

    Actually thinking about it Ruiz - Breazelle would be a great fight..

    When they both wake up maybe they can organise it..

    Ruiz doesn't rank over the 6'7 Breazeale, certainly not an in shape one and if he's coming in at 250 I doubt Wilder wins if he's also around 215.

    Ruiz is a threat but with short arms heavy feet and having to actually lunge off his feet to land hooks to make up distance against tall opponents is not remotely more dangerous then a big heavy handed guy with 82 inch reach walking you down looking to take your head off. Lol

    Ruiz in shape with the edge generally, Breazeale and lastly, Schwarz.

    Ruiz-Breazeale might be a good bout next down the road, assuming they both lose their title shots.

    Breazeale is really the best of the 3 over matched opponents. Breazeale would beat the **** out of Ruiz and Schwartz n the sand night

    Schwartz has been chopping wood in the Bavarian Alps. Be afraid!

    I cannot say who is the best between Ruiz and Breazeale ,them both fighting each other would be a good fight on its own as they are both very different . Speed and stamina I give to Ruiz , whilst power and durability I give to Breazeale . I think Breazeale is a lot more tested and more quantifiable as in we all know his strengths and weaknesses . Ruiz is a little more difficult to ascertain because I never really seen his depth yet making it a more difficult choice .

    Schwartz went the distance with Airich so he basically a workman fighter that really has not fought anyone of note . A generic HW is a safe way to describe Schwartz . If Fury does not make Schwartz quit via RTD or KOs him then Fury has a serious problem , and is not ready to fight top level against the likes of Whyte or possibly Charr .

    Gonna have to abstain from voting . To difficult to tell between Ruiz and Breazeale in summary .

    Ruiz is the most skilled and has never been dropped (I think), plus he had that super close fight with Parker who's a level above Breazeale.

    Breazeale is probably the toughest and the hardest hitting, and his height could potentially trouble opponents that Ruiz wouldn't, but he's slow, hittable and lacks ring IQ. He should have lost to Kassi, got dropped heavily by Mansour and Ugonoh, and generally looks like crap in most of the fights he's in. H2H I'd pick Ruiz over him anyday.

    Izu is faster , harder puncher , more skilled then Parker. Izu just beat Kassi easily. Izu would also probably best Ruiz bc he's himself a 6'5 pummeler with killer body shots who's very explosive and would get to the short Ruiz easily. And if Izu retains Ali Bashir you'll see what I'm talking about.

    After Saturday night i.look forward coming back to this thread and then ask if Ruiz could beat Breazeale.

    yeah Ruiz can box,we seen that against Parker and for a fat man he's surprisingly fast.I'll bet everyone knew a fat guy at school that could sprint?looks so funny n all.
    Breazele I can honestly say I don't have a clue as to his pedigree,came in to fight Joshua with some kind of Olympic pedigree?and I thought it was game on but all he showed me was that he could walk forward and take a hell of a beating.That said I try not to judge folk like Martin and Breazele against Joshua as the situation must be so overwhelming you can see they ain't thinking of offence in there.
    Didn't Breazele come with inches of losing in an all out war with someone not long after the Joshua fight?if so that would worry me as he was supposed to be 're building.
    If Breazele can stay tall and use his height(as Fury failed to do)I'm confident he can take Wilders conventional shots,thing is with Wilder as Fury found is he will catch you if you duck down,happened twice to Fury and that can't be a coincidence imo.
    As for Schwartz I've no idea who he is
