I hope Ruiz jr wins to setup a fight with Wilder next year. Certainly don’t need a Wilder vs Ortiz trilogy.

I think Ruiz jr has been mismanaged he has been given one fight in 3 years. Guy like Ruiz jr needs to be kept active. They could have brought him over to the U.K. and capitalised on his fame here and had him knockover a few tomatoe cans in England.

Looking at one of his interviews seems to gone through some sort of depression.

I will go with Ortiz purely based on his discipline and determination. Although with no degree of certainty.
It really does depend on which version of Ruiz turns up, doesn't it? The Ruiz of Joshua I wins. The Ruiz of Joshua II could lose.

I too hope Ruiz wins and sets up Ruiz-Wilder. Could be one of the more interesting heavyweight fights while it lasts.

Strange guy is Andy Ruiz jr. Hard to believe he is a former gang banger. Must have been the politest gang banger ever.

Even when saying something negative about other fighters or picking against them he is very polite about it. He is a likeable kid hope he can get himself together.

One thing there is no doubt about is what kind of mindset and shape Ortiz will be turning up in. Whatever his flaws he is a professional.

As for Andy no pun intended but he reminds me of the quote by Jim Rohn “ There are two kinds of pain in this world the pain of discipline and the pain of regret , discipline weighs ounces and regret weighs tons.”

His career seems destined to be one of regret.Then again I am not sure he likes boxing that much either. Probably just does it cus he was good at it.
I have never managed to work him out either. He is likeable and moves amazingly for a fat guy but the money he earned for the two AJ fights might have killed his hunger for further success.

Short but sweet that was. Big left hook from Cruz and Ramirez goes down face first. Barely makes the count and Cruz comes in and finishes him.

That will mess with the schedule.
