Ruiz fought like a make a wish competition winner. Didn't show heart of a champion there. Doubt he becomes champ again. In the championship rounds you'd expect Ruiz to bite on his gumshield and risk getting ko'd but nope

Excellent from AJ

Standard win, exactly what should of happened in first fight, not sure it really tells us too much about Joshua though, he wont fight many much shorter, less reach and as fat as that

Yep. It was an ugly Liverpool style performance to get the W. 😂 He can now spank an overmatched opponent like Everton.

Great from Joshua that. Casuals will say it's a bad fight but it was a masterclass against a difficult opponent who had the mental edge.

Joshua did what he had to and kept the risk down. It would have been too risky to get close so he used his jab and feet. Ruiz was carrying too much weight to get close enough to Joshua. Maybe not enough big punches for some people but sometimes you have to box cleverly.

Yep his five seconds of fame are over. As for Joshua, I think Wilder flatlines him and Fury outpoints him. I hope I'm wrong though.

Boxing wise that was outstanding from AJ. It wasnt great from a banging point of view but that was one for the purists. Ruiz got nowhere near him and AJ deserves the belts. He proved he can box tonight.

Very impressed with Joshua. I thought he would use those tactics but eventually run out of gas and get caught around round 9 or 10. Maybe be finally realised that pumping iron was doing him no favours stamina wise.

Probably a tactical masterclass, but, as i'm not a boxing expert, it just looked like Joshua is a massive shithouse who would be destroyed by Wilder or Fury.

He didn't avoid Ruiz. He out-boxed him and didn't get involved in a slugfest. It was up to Ruiz to find Joshua but he was too slow to do so.

Thought Joshua was clever, disciplined and well conditioned to dance around for like that for the full 12 rounds. I didn't think he had that sort of a fight in him.

Agreed, keeping it going all 12 rounds surprised me. He did have a few swings after a couple of shots to the back of the head but McCracken had him reigned in

Never been so sure that Wilder KOs Joshua after that, he was rightly scared or Ruiz' power and he used jab and movement to avoid it, I'm not sure with Wilder's physical attributes that game plan works for too long.
