Simple enough question.

Wlad last fought in a TKO loss to Joshua just over 2 years ago but he almost had AJ out of there and from what I've heard, he still trains and spars every week as if he was still in the game. He also made a long career of dealing with guys like Andy Ruiz, where he fought tall and at range, maintained discipline for all 12 rounds and avoided risks.

Say a fight was set for November this year, no tune up for Wlad, just straight back at it... would he reclaim all of his titles in one fell swoop?

You guys say that Ruiz Jr. is susceptible to being outboxed, but he was walking down Parker who tried to. Saying this, Klitschko likely hugs Ruiz Jr. to death like he did Povetkin. As I said, Ruiz Jr. is surprisingly very good at walking down fighters even with his slow feet. Guy just knows how to control the ring.

When Parker/Ruiz Jr. was announced, I was saying that Ruiz Jr. had a horrible stylistic matchup because of Parker's faster feet, but he surprised me walking him down. Anyways, it's a joy to watch Ruiz Jr. in action, and I would love to see him handle other HW's.

Wlad knows how to make use of his reach and height advantage. He'll stick his jab in Ruiz's face and will throw the straight right behind it. He'll crush him.
Haye had 100x more agility/mobility than Ruiz and couldn't lay a glove on Wlad.

Waldo probably knocks him out within 6 rounds while beating Taco easily from the outside.

Ruiz puts him on skates then TKO.

This is two years after the war with Joshua he will be even slower and it be a worse performance than two years ago. He's 43 and relied on speed and footwork. This isn't George Foreman we are talking here.

Ruiz is not very good. The overrating of the chap because Joshua was awful is stunning to see.
I never thought Wlad was that good either, if Ruiz can get on the inside and land a few Wlad will panic, Wlad's clinching has saved him many times

Ruiz only did as well as he did cause Joshua clearly didn't take him seriously and let Ruiz fight his fight. When Joshua realised he fucked up with his mental preparation it was far too late.

Joshua didnt take him serious :lol: all I saw was a non roided up AJ, plus hes said to have panic attacks nothing to do with not taking serious Joshua mentally broke, plus AJ knocked him down with a beautiful left hook and got caught trading Joshua's chin is shocking
