He would get a Wilder fight would probably have to give Wilder a 60/40 split but it would still be a big fight, if he loses to Ruiz Jr he is done at the top level
If there was no rematch, leaving Wilder with one title, Ruiz with the others and Joshua with none, I think Ruiz and Wilder would more likely fight each other than AJ.

It wouldnt happen next but it would happen at some point, AJ could get himself a mandatory position

Lol. People have only voted America because they want AJ to lose. Anyone knows AJ would be more likely to win in front of 80k in Cardiff.

He'd be fucked if he fought Wilder next and also lost. No way would he get a 2nd title fight in Tyson Fury.

It be best for him to just sit out and let Ruiz fight Wilder, but u believe Wilder is contracted to fight Ortiz and Fury next.

After getting knocked down 4 times it's best to take a rest for at least six months. Let Ruiz make a defense and try to rush him back into the ring early next year.

But, too much pride. AJ needs a rest and to be held back. As far as a venue it's simple, let him fight where he wants to fight.

From what I'm hearing it be because of a TUE (roids). I think even with supplements the pressure to regain the titles in front of 80,000 and all of England is too much for him. Hearn doesn't get this.

No one who is either impartial or supports AJ would Suggest he doesn't take the rematch. THIS IS HIS ONLY SHOT. If he doesn't take it it'll be Ruiz v Wilder and whoever wins then Matchroom fighters will be locked out for years (Well after AJ has retired). Those of us who have watched AJ from the beginning know he wasn't right 1/6 and if the real AJ returns he will win. If not he is done anyway so it doesn't matter!

Lol. I love how all the AJ haters accuse him of PED's at every instance but have not one drop of evidence. Talk about desperate....

Has to be the Garden give AJ chance to lay the demons to rest.

Wembley or Cardiff Stadium with AJ being the challenger. Doesn't seem right to me.

Wherever it will be held hope its just as dramatic as the first fight. Its a 50/50 fight
I shouldn't need to remind you that AJ was 22-0 in the UK and 6-0 at Wembley/Cardiff.

There are so any factors to consider here. Should Joshua go straight into a rematch at all after the beating he took? Do they just abandon the American dream?

Dillian Whyte said he got TUE in the past I have no reason to not believe him. It's legal doping at the end of the day.

Doesn't matter how much he was tested in the UK you can get TUE and still be cleared to fight.

Don't abandon the American dream, but they should just play their cards. Hearn and AJ are so desperate, power, and money hungry that they will risk it ALL with an immediate rematch within six months :patsch

Dude was concussed and knocked down 4 times! Rumors of him hurt in sparring, bruising under his left eye and a cut on the nose from sparring. Let him take a year off and stay in shape. Light sparring and let Ruiz make a defense then rush Andy Ruiz into a rematch early next year. Not the most honorable thing to do, but it makes the rematch more winnable for them.

They shouldn't be risking it all. I'd even wait until Ruiz fights Wilder v Fury II winner so he doesn't have to fight them ALL to reclaim the #1 spot. Let him sit for at least a year and let interest for AJ reach a boiling point! The young man needs a rest it's obvious.

Curiously, when GGG was asked what he thought about Joshua's performance against Ruiz he included 'different drug testing' in his answer.
It's possible him, Whyte, and DeGale know who is doping they just can't come out and say it without getting sued.
