If Joshua loses Again and especially by KO he has to Rethink his entire outlook on Boxing.
However Ruiz is looking alot more lean also and already Shocked The World 1nce. And  2wice is possibly only a few weeks away. 

Who knows

anything can happen

it aint about the size of the dog
is about the size of the heart in the dog!
and this fight i say if Ruiz can get into Joshuas head, bring out the La Raza fight spirit, and show him he still not afraid, he has a shot at winning especially now that he has cut some weight on his insta. Faster hands, lighter weight, but the glam and lights and fame can get to him and he might not be as hungry as the first time.

Joshua could very well also come in and be on A-Game and defend better against Ruiz style. He did mention he was going to go back to the ring and come back ready.... hopefully his coaches have changed his approach to this matchup. He will need more than athleticism and a good body to beat Ruiz. He will need to show more heart and land more damage on him.

Heavyweights fightin anything can happen. Good fight to watch, but I wouldn't risk it on the ML!

The belt system in boxing is really ******* ********.
The real champ has none. These two idiots fight for three. Makes a lotta sense.the corruption just ruined the show for me. This could been set up from the start just to make money on Ruiz. Just like  the wilder fury tie fiasco and canelo triple g.

I think Anthony Joshua will regain the WBA, IBF, and WBO titles.  I wish MMA had mandatory challengers like boxing does, so that champions couldn't deliberately duck tough opponents.

Joshua will probably beat Ruiz in the rematch, but the reality is he shouldn't have lost the first time. Joshua is overrated will be KO'ed by Wilder brutally should they ever fight, which they won't soon because Joshua doesn't want that smoke.

Deontay Wilder is scared to death of Anthony Joshua and everybody knows it.

No Tepid. He isn't.

Wilder will absolutely smoke Joshua. I'm 90% confident in that outcome.

Anthony Joshua's level of opposition is far superior to Wilder's.

Joshua's best win is the husk of wladdy. Fury is better (and MUCH harder to land well on) than anyone Joshua has ever fought. Ruiz isn't even good, really. He's a goon. Povetkin's best days were behind him long before he fought Joshua.

Wilder KO's meat n' potatoes Joshua within three rounds if they ever meet.

@fishrat

Anthony Joshua's fights are on his youtube channel, watch them before you comment on his level of opposition, because some of the fights people thought were going to be tough he made look very easy.

lol you say that like I haven't seen any of them. I have. I've seen all his major fights. I've been watching Boxing for a long time bud. Much longer than MMA.

I will sig bet anyone and everyone in this thread if that fight happens. I guarantee you Joshua gets slept horrifically. That's just not a good fight for him at all. Awful style for Joshua who fights like a cuban without the defense.

lol well, for that appearance I can only apologize. I watch Boxing live with Mikey ( who is a Bum!) and Brad ( wanker!) and a few others on this site quite regularly. Never seen your ass in live chat.

I think Wilder would smash Joshua tooo. IMO. It would probably be a good fight for 6 rounds while Wilder toys with him. Then puts him away in the 8th-ish... 

But that's just a "wankers" POV
