Well that’s Wilder to a tee. No boxing skills but no matter what you think of him you can’t disrespect the power.  A fully fit Fury absolute schools him, as long as he stays up right.  Bring on Feb

He can certainly  bang, although still looks like someone's stolen his basket ball.

you've gotta love Adam Smith, if anyone can shine s*** and call it gold, it's him, Kong is in his early 70's and managed to stay outta the titty bars long enough to shed a few stone, Adam has him down as a modern day George Foreman with the punching power of Ernie Shavers..

Evening Bird, just put BT on and Tete has already lost?

Wtf is going on with the order of fights there? I'm so perplexed I'm just going to have to post Tete's uppercut of justice v Butler again

edit and now there is a man fighting dressed as a bee?

I give up.

Don't give up Stortz, I went to Brentford once and bought a waggon wheel and some Smiths crisps instead of a bovril, (the last time I saw anyone dressed as a bee).. 

Effing pissed it down...

Are the cameras being operated by people who don't understand boxing? They're so zoomed in you can't see their feet ffs.

Stortz.. 

What's your early thoughts about next week? If AJ can't use his physical advantages, there's no hope... 

For me, Ruiz is living in AJs head rent free atm and will do him again

I can't believe AJ can have made the necessary adjustments in the time he's had, unless the first fight was a complete aberration due to circumstances we're unaware of.

You can see a potential path to a points decision from the blueprint against Parker but I'm not sure Joshua can be disciplined enough not to get involved in exchanges with Ruiz at some stage, and if he does he'll get outgunned by volume and quality.

Completely agree with this. Joshua would have to completely restyle his boxing ability to counteract the issues he had against Ruiz last time out. The Bunce and Costello podcast last week was interesting though, AJ appeared to hint there was something that happened in the build up to the first fight that he has corrected, but wouldn't say what. Looking forward to this fight; intriguing.

I have watched the re run of AJ v Ruiz, the first thing is he did look pensive (for some reason) during the ring walk, but the thing that struck me as odd was when Ruiz was floored, he didn't do what 99% of fighters do and retreat to the ropes, he fired straight back at AJ, a massive gamble.. 

Im undecided ATM about the rematch.. 

Compelling though...

Ruiz stoppage again for me. I just think his hands are too quick on the inside and that he'll manage to get through. AJ needs to bore his way through it with his jab but I just don't think he has the discipline to do it over 12 rounds. 

There's an interesting documentary on Iplayer currently that goes through the first fight. Worth a watch. 

Can't wait for Saturday.

Ringwalk at 8.45. Only good thing with it being in SA!

Not so good for people making their way back from Fulham, my train doesn't get back to Temple Meads until gone 8!

Good to see you Owl, hope you've been well.

Ruiz is a stone heaver than last time, Joshua 10lb lighter.

That's a mad amount to put on for an already big bloke. He's going to need to fly at Joshua and get him out of there early, because no way is he good for 12 rounds.

Ruiz been enjoying taco Tuesday's or what

Joshua lighter than last time so clearly the tactic is going to be to stay on the move and tire out Ruiz

Ruiz evidently thinks he can blow AJ away this time.

I find myself slightly swaying towards AJ now.  Ruiz might well blow out after 6 rounds

Interesting Bunce and Copello show on R5 tonight, apparently AJ has stopped the weights work and concentrated on boxing training.  Interesting comment that you never saw Ali in a gym with heavy weights, looking like a body builder might be aesthetic, but it does slow you down.

Dropping weight won’t make his head movement any better I’m afraid,he could outbox Ruiz of course but that’s hard to do when you haven’t had to do it your whole career,be very interesting 

Exactly the way I see it mate, if AJ manages to change his spots radically enough to win then fair play to him, but I can't envisage that he can.

Enjoy it everyone, I'll be back for the the aftermath on Sunday!

If any of them is going to blow in the later rounds its AJ

Not sure - he went 12 roads with Parker and 11 with Vlad.. mind you Ruiz was still going strong after 7 last time so who knows!

This is why AJ is without doubt the most exciting heavyweight around and earns what he does,he could quite easily knock him out first round or be flattened himself anytime

Both to be knocked down in the first 3 rounds is 40/1 which is tempting.

I’m having that , plus both to be knocked down in round 3; 66/1

@Stortz @joe jordans teeth, @Owl Visiting you watched BBC programme on Iplayer? Interesting insight from the ref about Joshua having no plan B and turned his back on me , he wanted more time but I’m not allowed to give it to him

A few people think Ruiz might have been holding weights to make himself heavier at the weigh in. All a ploy to get Joshua to underestimate him again.

I honestly have no idea how I think this is going to play out. I quite like Ruiz and don't like Joshua so kind of hope Ruiz wins again.. then again, having all the belts with Al Haymon via Ruiz and Wilder isn't great for the division. 

Good fight and also a decent undercard too.
