I'd like to see Joshua ditch the S and C coaches, work on his boxing with either Booth or Banks. He's got the right attitude, he just needs the right help.

It was a short notice fight and the perfect storm... Visible bruising and a cut on his face from sparring, opponent was also an Olympian, young, hungry opponent, first fight in America, 20+ yes men, rumors of being hurt in sparring, didn't look right pre fight... It's getting a little annoying you guys going in on Joshua. He won gold and had a few title defenses. If he wins the rematch a lot of you are going to eat crow.

Time to tone it down and visualize the rematch and the comeback. Not saying he'll win (haven't put much thought into it), but stop saying shit like he has minimal boxing ability that's silly. The loss will be the best thing to happen to him it will force him to change for the better and other things the public might not know about.

Not being hostile at all, but let's be realistic here this is the former heavyweight champ of the world. Not as bad as some of you are making him out to be :good
True. His performance was shocking though, even in the first two rounds when he let Ruiz take centre ring and the comments in the corner prior to third were baffling.

I tipped Ruiz to win before he looked, in some people's opinions at least, not quite right. Before Ruiz concussed him and before the endless post fight rumors of what might and might not have happened pre-fight. I'm also sick and tired of hearing people make excuses for AJ because he lost.

Not sure how I've been perceived, but I'm not making excuses for him just analyzing the situation and lead up. Ever since he won the title I tune because like I said weeks ago I knew he'd lose sooner or later. He gasses in fights and hasn't exactly dominanted since winning the title and in taking it from Wlad.

I expect him to give his all in the rematch. Cover up well and yeah we'll see. Haven't put enough thought into it to make a prediction just yet :good

I don't buy AJ wouldn't have given his all in the first fight and have no doubt he will give his all again in the rematch. But people looking past the punches Ruiz landed for a reason why AJ lost are jumping at shadows IMO. Once you enter the ring there are no excuses.

Looking at the voting here a lot people must think AJ is going to turn up not looking right again. Perhaps he will try and look not quite right when he enters the ring so people can use it to create excuses for him again if he loses?
There are no excuses a second time. If he loses he is DONE.

Just seen Eddie Hearn say that the belts will become very fragmented after Ruiz Joshua II.

Already putting it out there that theyll be ducking Usyk should they win.

Once again your letting your Anti AJ/EH get the better of you, both the IBF and WBO madatories are due and I think the IBF has been Mandatory for longer which means the Winner will likely have to fight Pulev next likely Apr/May 2020. The WBO might not wait until Autumn 2020 for the Mandatory for Usyk so that belt will become free and Usyk will fight for it. Looking at their Rankings it could well be the winner of Whyte/Rivas as I doubt the winner of Fury/Wilder will want to jump straight in with Usyk.

He should not have won the gold at the Olympics though, he was fucking gifted it. Lost to the cuban easily but was giving it, and then lost to the policeman from italy in final, and once again they gave it to him after an extra round or what ever it was. They wanted a home heavyweight champ, and damn well made sure they got one.

You need medical assistant with thst message under your username. I can't stand AJ or Hearn but never in my life would I call there fans scum.

Fury's success must really trigger you and some gypo fella must of given you a slap or something.
