Joshua vs Ruiz 2 Live Fight Thread!!!!!!

On December 7 in the blistering heat of the Saudia Arabian desert, one of the biggest rematches in boxing history will take place, as Anthony Joshua seeks revenge against Andy Ruiz Jr. The first contest between these two ended in a manner very few, if any, would have predicted and as Ruiz raised his hands in victory, a truly iconic moment in boxing was created.Going into this rematch, I see Joshua changing his approach drastically and boxing long and moving far more than we have seen before. The weight loss will help his speed and endurance but do not be surprised if this turns into something similar to the Parker contest. Ruiz doesn't need to adjust, he will come forward, try and get on the inside and use his hand speed and pressure to wear his opponent down. It's a genuine 50/50 contest and with so much at stake, one wrong move can cost you everything. However, I think Joshua will deploy a cautious and potentially boring game plan and despite a late rally from Ruiz, I think AJ will go the distance and earn a points victory and in doing so, he will reclaim his titles and his legacy.

Predictions and thoughts?

Cant blame Ruiz too much tbh. Yes he sabotaged himself with his half azzed approach to training but the guy has tens of millions of dollars in the bank.

We should be past the stage of giving boxers credit for becoming professional boxers and making shed loads, which is all part and parcel of it.

Ruiz's lack of preparation going into such a big fight is embarrassing and lets the sport down.

This was Ruiz in October: https://twitter.com/MichaelHunterII/status/1189985055151546368

He's clearly in shape and lean so all this about him putting on too much weight isn't down to the partying, it's a result of him lacking the discipline to stay in shape during training camp.

I reckon AJ would have battered him at this weight.
He looks well skinny.

Rumour has it Oscar is still telling someone somewhere that AJ’s getting knocked out in a minute.

All part and parcel? There are hundreds of thousands of failed boxers out there, most dont drive white Rolls Royces.

Frankly anyone prepared to risk their lives in the ring gets my respect immediately. I have only ever done pad work and gym I would never have the balls to risk brain damage fighting anyone for real.

Is Oscar still in hiding? It might be best for him because Tyson Fury and his trainer Ben Davidson have parted ways
