    Joshua Ruiz!

    Didnít watch the whole fight but saw the clips. Didnít even look like Ruiz really connected well on those knock down shots. Makes Joshua look like a chump!

    He corkscrewed Joshua a couple of other times before that. For a fat guy Ruiz has good movement and defense. I was surprised

    Not to take anything from Ruiz it surprised me.
    Ruiz is a solid boxer. Not beat Joshua solid though. He hits hard and has speed, something just seemed off with Joshua to me. He took far more punishment from Wladimir and did what Fury could not and not only dropped Wladimir, he put an end to him in 11 and did not leave it up to the judges.

    Frankly I am absolutely shocked. Awesome for Ruiz. As much as I am not a fan of Fury I will say his response was far more dignified than Wilders.

    I'm not interested in seeing Ruiz play with the two giant mouthpieces. I would like to see him defend against White, (he really is and earned the number 1 contender spot as I see it), rematch Joshua and fight Usyk when he steps up.

    Let the other two dingbats crush cans and twitch and slap at each other for twelve rounds.

    I TOLD YA!LL! Was it 2 days before the fight? I said Joshua hasn't proved he's the amazing fighter claimed.

    Ruiz proved my point.

    I liked how Ruiz would get hit in the face and snap, sending a flurry of punches. Like a pit bull.

    Take that, ego-filled Joshua!

    Something seemed "off" to you?

    Not me-Joshua is overhyped, is filled with ego by his team, and is treated like a demigod.

    Ruiz and guys like him are the cure against fighters like Joshua, who's so filled with pride they don't even box amazingly.

    Joshua spit out his mouthpiece! 100% arrogance. RIGHT AFTER he went to his corner and tried to get away with resting. What an egotist.

    Amazing speed for a fatty.

    Ruiz' speed and his punch flurry response to getting hit in the face shocked me the most.

    Yes, that's what I said. The man who went toe to toe with Wladimir and put him down in 11, something Fury could not do, went down way to easy.

    It's looking like Joshua got knocked out pretty badly during training leading up to the fight. We all know what a concussion can do to you.

    As someone who is attempting to vacate his seat on teamtubby I agree.

    Joey Dawejko knocked Joshua out sparring before the fight. Joshua still had bruises on his face. You can call it whatever you like. It's not very common to get knocked out training right before defending a title.

    What’s it say when the fighter is getting badly knocked out by his sparring partner?
