The performance was very Mayweather-esque. Obviously not as masterful. Who next for AJ? Maybe he could test himself against Ortiz to see how he does compared to Wilder, or a rematch vs Dillian Whyte at Wembley.

I think someone said he has to fight Pulev or Usyk as mandatories. I think he beats Pulev easily, but he should avoid Usyk like the plague.

He didn’t struggle tonight, won pretty much every round bar 2.
That wasn’ta good performance by any stretch. I’ve been looking forward to AJ correcting the mistakes from his last match but that wasn’t what I expected.

Joshua's had 25 fights and been in with the likes of Wlad, Parker, Whyte, Povetkin.

Go and tell me the best names on Fury and Wilder's cv after 25 fights.
I'll have you know that Fury beat Wlad, and Chisora TWICE (thanks Pep). Also BIG wins against Martin Rogan, Francesco Vienetta ice-cream, Sefer Seferi (so good they almost named him twice), Joey Abell, AND Vinny Maddalone. Oh wait, Vienetta was fight #27.

In Wilder's first 25 fights he beat Ty Cobb (thought he played baseball), Dan Sheenan, Travis Allen, Damon Reed, AND Owen 'what the heck' Beck (his real nickname). He also beat Jason Gavern but that's fight #32 so doesn't count.

If you paid £25 because you thought AJ was going to wade i to a slugfest then you've only got yourself to blame.

We used to get this in here every time Mayweather fought, like they were expecting Gatti v Ward.

Why? Usyk doesn’t have power at HW. Joshua would bully him with that jab

He doesn't have power like Ruiz does, but he's in better shape and has much better footwork so I'd back him to get inside that jab more often than not.

I think he can take a punch as well. Gassiev and Breidis are legit punchers and he took some heavy shots from both of them.

Usyk is a FAR better boxer than Joshua. He could definitely win a UD.

Whyte was dire tonight. Barely won against that pole, who had previously three losses in a row.
Whyte was about a stone and a half overweight. Took the fight at late notice which is odd since he has been relatively active.

Different taking a shot from a 6’6 17st heavyweight though. Be a fight I’d want to see

Hard to call that one, reckon there would be some arguments after it though as i see it being one of those fights where a number of rounds could have been scored either way and we get some oddly wide scoring cards from judges resulting in shouts of corruption even though it's really just a case of those close rounds going in favour of the winner.

Decent by Joshua but limited opponent who had better moobs than me.

Wilder or Fury would absolutely wreck him, although his new fighting weight is definitely an improvement on the robotic muscleman seen previously.

Yeah, if it's in the UK definitely. I think often the judges end up scoring shots that land on the arms or the gloves because the crowd get excited.

If it's in the Saudi library again that won't be an issue.

Although I'm not a boxing fan I saw the guy who kept himself in shape won, surprise surprise  :wave Must be a huge relief for Joshua after what happened to him in summer. Anyone can have a bad day but class is permanent, especially when still in an athlete's prime.

That Ruiz showed up overweight was just silly. Clearly only there for the money which was a shame for everyone who paid to watch it.

Fast Eddie can stop sweating..Matchroom faced a 2 year Yank shut out in the Heavyweights if Ruiz had won

Natural fights now look like AJ v Whyte next...and Wilder v Ruiz is an easy make...Wilder v Fury..late February looks tight...

AJ v Pulev is as pointless as Wilder v Brezeale

Little chance of a unification in 2020...Wilder fought for two minutes in 51 weeks before Ortiz....

Or Usyk who is now mandatory for WBO. 180 days to make the fight happen. Should be easy to make happen as both with Hearn.

These mandatories can fuck off, who has Pulev ever beaten to deserve a shot?

Ruiz should never fight for a world title again. Most important fight of his career and he comes in fat as fuck and unprepared. Then has the nerve to call for a trilogy in Saudi, wonder why you want it over there ey? Looking to cash out early.

Ruiz fought and trained as though he didn't think he belonged at this level. It is unforgivable to come in in this shape for the biggest fight you'll ever be in and as a champion to boot. For a guy you have already beaten no less.

He will go back to propping up undercards and pulling out of fights. Good riddance

The difference is Tua was on a whole different level to Ruiz. Lewis put a masterclass on against a far better and more dangerous fighter than Ruiz. Tua had an absolute granite chin and explosive power he would put the current lot of Joshua, Wilder, Fury and Ruiz asleep. Tua was also not a physical embarrassment like Ruiz was last night.
