Never said he was, said his opponents were, we won't know how good Buatsi is till he faces some semi-decent opponents in a few fights time then we can start properly judging him, at the minute he is 1/100 on every fight and expected to win a canter, doesn't prove anything really.

When he beats someone semi-decent, he is already 26, when he gets in with a Hughie Fury, Chisora, Jennings, Joyce, just someone who stands a bit of a chance of winning, that's when I think the hype gets more real, winning 1/100 on fights means nothing to me.

Cor...we’ll have to wait bloody ages to judge him then if we got to wait until he fights opponents two weight divisions higher than himself.

I don't get all of the Joshua hate. He hasn't himself come out making excuses - he said he was beaten by the better fighter on the night. Before that he has beaten everyone put in front of him - handpicked or not. The only 2 people he could have fought are Fury or Wilder, for whatever reason, that didn't/hasn't happened. Perhaps its because he isn't ready to face them - they have far more experience.

Personally, I think something was wrong with him. Robot or not he has enough about him to beat Ruiz (who is no mug btw). I think he will work his way back and this defeat could be the making of him when he looks back on his career.

Not that I want him to, but shouldn't Ruiz vacate his IBF for taking the rematch and not a mandatory? Just like Tyson Fury was.......

If I were Eddie Hearn I'd go with something similar to John Lyall's "it was a warm night for February" after we got turfed out of the FA Cup by lower division opposition (again).

Not a huge Hearn fan, but whether it be ‘step aside’ money or asking for an exception, you would fancy him to ensure all the belts were on the line again in the rematch. Ruiz also has a slick team around him, Al Haymon is like a god to his fighters.

If it was someone like Hennessy (who Fury was with at the time) or even Warren, you would be far less confident

Be interesting how this gets played out as in essence, Hearn is attempting to play in the big boy's leagues of Al Haymon, whether it actually happens, where it happens, who gets paid what, what is on the line

Warrington vs Galahad tonight on BT not PPV, should be a reasonable scrap, Galahad is slippy and with Ingle the lunatic roid head in his corner. Atmosphere being Leeds should be lively too

Not sure who The dude Fury just fought is but he’s going to want to reconsider his career option. That was a very painful clinic by Fury. He took a page from Ali’s book the way he was ducking punches. Must have been 7 or 8 punches in a row he completely dodged.

Would the big boys all get to fighting now and stop this nonsensical fighting of cream puffs? Just get it done. If one of them loses then get back in a do it again.

Think he is just a normal bloke, seems to have a lot of time for fans, seems to appreciate where he is in a privileged position as such, in today's pr image world, he is just him, bit outspoken, does some mad things like the singing but just seems like a fun guy who is the best heavyweight on the planet

And underneath he is a top bloke
