    :lol: Joshua basically just quitting there. I don't watch boxing too much anymore but I guess a lot of people that do say this Ruiz guy is legit despite his build. I guess Joshua has too many muscles sucking up too much oxygen or something.

        I've never heard of either of those fighters. When I was younger, the heavyweight champion was literally a household name: Ali, Larry Holmes, Tyson, Holyfield. Now boxing is an afterthought.

          Huge boxing fan but I have to agree, the heavyweight division is a joke. Before that fight Joshua was regarded by most as the #2 or #3 heavyweight fighter in the world. That fat mexican is a nobody and just a sub for another fighter.

          That fat Mexican can take a punch and is heavy-handed. Always a dangerous combination.

            Yep I guess Wilder is considered to be the top heavyweight now and really has a big punch but when the Russians took over as champs when Lewis retired the American Press stopped covering the heavyweights much or many others except usually boring Mayweather fights.

              Butterbean would be so proud.

              Joshua looked real broken up about losing that fight. He was smiling and laughing afterwards. This looks thrown.

              I doubt it. He just didn't want to be knocked out in epic style so he pulled that mess.

              I wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case.

                Joshua fought differently, poorly. Either Ruiz can ignore power punches or Joshua had the flu.
                The conduct of the fight just looked weird. Joshua certainly wasn't like a champion.??
                Will Joshua dominate the rematch? Or does this begin his downward spiral? Boxing is a mess, "the sweat science"?

                  Ruiz is a decent fighter, dude had one split decision loss fighting in opponents home country. In the fights I've seen of his, dude is always going through 12 rounds. This was no Jobber... if you compare how he looked at the weight in and the fight, dude put on an extra 15 to that 260.
