    Vlad's robotic style is perfect for Ruiz who has a knack of working his way past robotic defenses and landing bombs.

    Okay, Ruiz Jr, shook up the boxing world to some, exposed a hyped champion to others. But outside of this one fight, he lost to Parker, who has been proven since to be nothing special. Can we let Ruiz jr win a few more matches vs top ten rated opponents, before we put him in with Wlad?

    If the match was made based on what we know now, Ruiz Jr is out inside six rounds. Wlad had an awesome jab, and was mobile in way the stiff Joshua can only hope to be.

    Vlad is too robotic to give Andy trouble. He should come out of retirement and give it a shot to see what happens.

    But lost to Parker, who cant KO one of Wlad's easiest opponents such as Leapai, who is 38 now lol

    Wlad wins on points if he's allowed to wrestle on the inside and probably KOs Ruiz late.

    Wlad is much smarter and more talented than AJ

    Why does thinking "Wlad is great ",a casual thing?
    You're thinking of the "Prime Tyson " fan club. Those are the casuals.

    Wlad would have pummeled Ruiz. He didn't let guys fight on the inside.

    Except he would have been considered a bum before the fight and people would just say oh he beat a bum.

    Nah Ruiz is a bit overrated.Parker who got dropped by Whyte twice manage to withstand him and outbox him.Klitsko rarely gets hit and has a underrated Chin.Lewis and klitsko can be bombed out but generally use their height to avoid most bombs and outbox. Fatty Ruiz had trouble with AJ's jab even though he dosen't use it well.I think it would be logical to favour the more proven boxer at this opponent. I think Chris Byrd,Samuel peter and prime David haye would beat ruiz soundly lol. Some of these fighter hit way harder then ruiz or were slicker yet were koed .
