well, its does really.It doesn't really.
There's multiple people in the division who don't hold belts or have one belt who would beat Ruiz.
a guy like that should not hold any belts at all in the heavyweight division.
he sure wouldn't have in the 60s 70s 80s or 90s.
because to do that he'd have to beat guys like ali, foreman, frazier, norton, holmes, tyson, tucker, biggs, lewis, holyfield.
i'd be surprised if he was even ranked high enough to earn a title shot against any of those guys.
this is the only era i can think of where guys like ruiz and joshua could hold title belts.
