Four heavyweight drug cheats on the Saudi undercard
Two of them failed more than once

That must be a record

Ruiz is never getting the decision at the AJ pity party extravaganza - he’ll have to KO him to win the fight.

I think it will be a more cautious fight, with Ruiz getting a late stoppage.

Ruiz stone heavier, Joshua 10lb lighter.

Think Ruiz needs to go for a quick finish as that extra weight may pose a problem if it goes past 6 or 7.

Ruiz weighs in at 20 stone 2lbs - 15lbs heavier than before
Joshua weighs in at 16st 13lbs - 10lbs lighter than before

what do we make of those weights?

i wonder how much of Ruiz's extra weight is water retention just to bulk up a little and then will drop down a few lbs before the fight?

Joshua was exposed as the average boxer with a suspect chin that he always was last time out and let's not forget , Joshua pretty much quit in that fight and allowed the ref to wave it off.

He has no heart and it's only not been exposed because he's been fed past it fighters and tomato cans.

I expect Ruiz to do the same to him as last time.

Sky's whole " the biggest shock the boxing world has ever seen' is quite irritating.

I keep asking this question nobody ever replies
Why do they have a weigh in for heavyweights?
They don't have a weight to make

Ruiz's coach wanted him to come in lighter than his 19st 2 weight last time round, but no, he hit the scales at a whopping 20 stone. Seems he has been over celebrating since his last fight

Given the weight differences. If AJ takes the fight into later rounds he'll win.

I totally agree wth you and it seems sky have forgotten who James buster Douglas was if they think Ruiz and Joshua was the biggest upset ever.

Who's this little fat guy? Looks like a Newcastle United fan baring all in midwinter.

Is punching to the back of the head allowed in Boxing now, Ruiz is doing it frequently.

Good flurry from Ruiz then, had AJ rattled when he steps in.
