I thought Ruiz would beat Joshua. But I think Wilder will beat Ruiz. Probably stop him fairly early on.

I have to go with Ruiz by KO, if he can withstand those bombs he can hurt wilder how Ortiz did where Ruiz is a great come forward fighter and his small stature and small target will be hard for the tall behemoth Fury Wilder and AJ.

The wilder fight is more harder then AJ who I was never really sold on, I'm sold on Wilder's unorthodox hard hitting style and has great resilience.

Its going to be a war.

Now Fury that boxing IQ vs Ruiz is going to be even harder, but I have to root for Ruiz.. I actually bet on him and he made me money at 10/1 odds so I'm BIased haha!

Ruiz knocks Wilder spark out. Ruiz has iron in his chin, Wilder has glass and no boxing skills. Let’s keep in mind Wilder has only beaten Ortiz, who was beating Wilder and almost stopped him. Let’s keep in mind that Wilder was dropped by some morbidly obese bum early in his career. Let’s keep in mind that Molina rocked Wilder down to his boots. Let’s keep in mind that we’ve seen Wilder brutally KTFO as an amateur. Let’s keep in mind that Wilder got comprehensively outboxed by Fury. Let’s keep in mind Breazeale even wobbled Wilder.
Ruiz is the champ of the division, Wilder is a paper titlist who only holds his title due to incompetent judging.

We’ve seen Ruiz eat massive bombs from Parker and Joshua without blinking, what makes you think Wilder is going to stop him? Ruiz isn’t Breazeale or Stiverne.

Did you predict Ruiz would beat Joshua? I did. Enough said.

Haha what? What’s your implication, because you got a prediction right you know all the results of all the boxing matches in the future?
Answer the question, what are you basing your prediction on?

My prediction is Wilder knocks Ruiz out.

Why you ask? Because Wilder won't have to go looking for Ruiz. He will be standing right in front of him and when Wilder connects flush Ruiz will not get up.

Feel free to disagree with my opinion, nearly everybody did when I predicted Ruiz would beat Joshua, but I am not going to engage in a circular argument with you. So you can get that right out of your head.

Can't wait thats an epic fight!

Mexican American Vs. Black, thats whats up! Whoever wins America wins, both great american fighters!

I know they repping Mexico because there is legacy with that, and Ruiz has a claim because both his parents are mexican which allows him to become a mexican national and in essence a true mexican carrying dual citezenship where he even fought on the mexican olympic team, but lets not kid ourselves, homeboy is a chicano (Mexican American).

I just hope its a great fight, and both go to war like true HW champs.

Without blinking? Did you miss AJ putting him down hard on his ass?
He did recover immediately but it wasn't exactly without blinking. That'd be Hagler eating everything from Hearns.

That’s about as shallow an analysis as someone can give. No wonder nobody paid attention to your prediction.
Ruiz moves with an active guard and he’s a small target who is always moving inside, and Wilder only has power from range.
Again, I have no idea where you’re pulling this idea from that Ruiz is going to get hurt and won’t get up. Ruiz took flush shots from Joshua and Parker and didn’t blink, the knockdown was a balance knockdown and he was clear eyed and catching himself as he went down. That’s the first time he has ever been dropped. He has an iron chin and he’s a boxer. Wilder has been dropped as a pro by a plodding obese man, and he was knocked out as an amateur by a smaller guy throwing a similar punch to Ruiz’ overhand right he often throws.

He got hit flush and went down hard. The thing is you look at his eyes, and the way he tried to catch himself as he went down. How that punch didn’t hurt him beats me, Joshua isn’t feather fisted and it was about as good a punch that could be landed. Ruiz was in an awkward position, it was like it pushed him over at a rapid pace and had no effect. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything like it. Then Joshua landed some absolutely flush punches that took other opponents out, and Ruiz thinks nothing of it and counters back immediately. The guy has a ridiculous chin.

Depends. What I think we know about Ruiz now is that he's game to trade and he's a great puncher inside and over the top. The overhand right is the Achilles heel of many taller boxers.

Lots of other HWs would have folded on that left hook AJ dropped Ruiz with. I think in all fairness to AJ, most HWs would have expired before the 3rd given the shots AJ landed. If it weren't Ruiz anyway. Cast iron jaw, weight behind his shots and good skill.

Interesting note I heard today was that Joey D. knocked AJ down hard in sparring leading up to this fight. That's why AJ had the bruise the night of the fight and why his dad was protesting the decision for the fight to go forward. That overhand right if I had to guess was the culprit.

If Wilder gets Wild, I like to think Ruiz handles him easily. If Wilder doesn't give Ruiz room to punch inside and doesn't throw wild outside he wins pretty easily. Basically what AJ should have done.
