Joshua shouldn't be trying to trade.

Convincing and comfortable win for AJ.

It was, but I don't think the next opponents will be worried by what they've seen tonight.

Convincing and comfortable win for AJ.

He looks better at this weight, not so much a muscle mountain.  That said, he'd do well to hope that Fury takes the belt from Wilder, and get it that way, as I think that one punch from Wilder will knock him out cold.

I do find it funny how some are essentially now criticising AJ for boxing well and not playing into Ruizís hands.

I thought it would be over in 5 after AJ landed that right in Rd1 that cut Ruiz but fair play, Ruiz has got some jaw on him.
As for the criticism of AJ, he had the plan to beat Ruiz, stuck to it and executed it perfectly.

Yep, that was more or less a masterclass. Joshua deserved the criticism after the first fight and Ruiz the credit, but equally, Joshua boxed beautifully second time around. A few blips in the middle rounds aside, it was pretty much an exhibition.

I understand frustration given the price of PPV, but this is boxing, not bullfighting. Yes it can be brutal at times, but anyone who just wants to see blood and thunder should watch MMA or whatever the latest Marvel film is.

Andy Ruiz is 2/1 to beat Anthony Joshua on Saturday, That must be the value bet of the weekend.

Bookies love me.

Hard to tell Dubois level but he sure got the job done.

That punch would have finished any boxer in the world. He needs to step up now - his next opponent should be Christian Hammer/Joseph Parker standard.
