The day after the fight, AJ receives a package from Wilder: A cardboard box about 15" x 15" x 15".

He opens it up, and inside is Andy Ruiz's head.

-------------------------------

Ruiz' defense relies way too much on the classic earmuffs style, and Wilder can knock a guy out right through the gloves.
Plus, Wilder knows how to fight on the outside, when he chooses to do so.
And Andy is not very fast, moving forward. He only beat AJ because Aj fought the absolute most idiotic game plan possible, standing toe-to-toe.

I'd give Ruiz maybe a 10% chance. There are several guys who I think have a decent chance of beating Wilder, but Fat Andy isn't one of them. Like the wise man once said, "Styles make fights."

Hmm, see Ruiz still claiming he has influence over the rematch location. Still a little worried that it will end up in MSG just because Ruiz will say he'll renege on the contract if it's not in the US. Hearn said on IFL last night he will tell Ruiz's team the location next week but might not announce to public.

AJ better win this rematch as we won't see a HW title fight in the UK for ten years....
How many 'announcement expected by the end of the week' announcements has Eddie made on this so far?

Now he is announcing 'there won't be an announcement next week'.

What is Hearn playing at? One minute he is threatening to take Ruiz to court over the venue. Next minute he is claiming Madison Square Garden is the running.

"We've provided the dates to Team Ruiz, now we've got to provide the venue," Hearn added.

"The dates are November 29 or December 14, those are the dates we're working on. Of the venues that have come on in the last week, one is very serious and we're very deep in conversation.

"I think the frontrunner is still Cardiff, December 14. Madison Square Garden is in the running too."

You really don't have much confidence in your boy do you?
I think AJ can win at MSG but he has a much better chance at Cardiff so why wouldn't you want the fight at the highest percentage win location. Especially in a fight that could end his career. Only an idiot says "lets go somewhere I think I have a 55% chance rather than a 70% chance" !

You started off strong and your confidence fizzled again.
Bit like Hearn with his venue negotiations.

Ruiz has got you, Joshua and Hearn on the run by January 2020 "World" champion Joshua will be no more...

You can't conquer the US from Cardiff.

I think getting the titles back is more important than conquering the US at the moment.
If AJ rematches Ruiz in the US and wins he makes a very positive statement to the US market and wets their appetite for more.

If he rematches Ruiz in the UK, win or lose, it looks like the conservative move of a worried fighter and does nothing for his US cause.

That might be true but better to be conservative and win than positive and lose! The US cause is not bigger than his career and if he doesn't win this fight he's done so I'd rather look worried than be a has been.

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.
What the hell do you mean Ruiz didn't blink from Joshua's bombs, Ruiz was minutes away from being stopped in the 3rd before catchingt Joshua slipping. You see, this is why the opinion of some of you Wilder critics should not be taken seriously.

By the way Ruiz is getting knocked the fuck out in the rematch.......quote me after the fight.

Just stop.. if you think Ruiz was close to being stopped there you have no business watching boxing. He was caught by Joshua’s best right hand flush, just seconds afterwards and didn’t blink.

He didn't blink yet he was down on his butt. And I'm the one that has no business watching boxing. Dude, do you even read the shit you write before you hit post reply?

Just because AJ couldn't stop Ruiz doesn't mean Wilder can't.
That’s true, but we also haven’t seen Ruiz hurt. Wilder will be punching down, and he isn’t the boxer that Joshua is. If he can catch him there’s nothing to say that Wilder would get him out of there. On the other hand Wilder has been caught and stopped by a shorter boxer before, there’s a precedent. Joshua is vulnerable to short stocky guys and so is Wilder. They aren’t experienced enough and good enough boxers to negate the smaller, faster, better boxers. Usyk also struggled against smaller guys.

If he can catch him there’s everything to suggest Wilder would get him out of there.
