That indeed would have knocked a horse out. That  was awesome

Can’t wait for AJ - Wilder. And the Wilder - Fury rematch.

I think you’ll be waiting a while, Wilder has old man Ortiz and Kownacki lined up.

I've watched it back a couple of times this morning and Wilder was definitely hurt before the knockout, I think if himand AJ get it on the first person to land will win.

He fought Ortiz last year ffs. Urgh, boxing man. I think the absolute avoidance of simply matching the best against the best in their prime, is why we no longer have household stars like Tyson, Ali, Louis, Frazier etc. And I don’t even mean in terms of skill & ability either but in terms of iconic moments. You’d rather see Joshua/Wilder/Fury go at it over & over in rematches than see them fighting relative journeymen like Parker, Breazeale & whoever the hell Joshua is fighting next.

Parker was a unification fight and was unbeaten. I think people tend to have rose tinted glasses when it comes to past eras, there were plenty of times when the public had to wait a while for fights, but people forget the wait and only remember the fight.

In terms of household names, Joshua is huge here, but in America the Mayweather era ran the sport into the ground, and people like Bob Arum and Al Haymon haven’t got to grips with it yet. They’re waiting around trying to build PPV stars, but the PPV market is dead, that’s a big reason fights aren’t happening.

You're probably right, I just find it pretty frustrating. I was a huge Pacquiao fan and genuinely believed had he fought Mayweather about 5 years before it actually happened (sometime between the Hatton & Bradley fights), he'd would a stood an excellent chance of winning and winning well. But we had to wait and he was injured going into the fight, yet they still tried to hype it up as this massive spectacle - taking the fans for mugs really. Now we have these 3 giants and yet it may be 1 or 2 years before we see the rematch or Joshua-Wilder, when they could be going at whilst all 3 are in their prime and we could end up with one of those famous sagas Ali/Frazier/Tyson/Holyfield etc gave us.

Wilder-Fury was magnificent, so I'm not saying there's a complete neglect of creating big fights, both Fury & Joshua v Klitschko also incredible. I just never feel like the promoters do their utmost to create the best fights.

Don't think I've seen anyone look less of a professional fighter than this fella Hughie Fury's boxing. :lol: Like watching the school bully fighting the fat kid in class, tits n'all.

Aye, Ruiz can fight. The 1 defeat on his record was a narrow points loss to Parker for the world title. I scored him winning that fight in this thread. In turn Parker is the only man to have taken Joshua the distance to date and some people had reasonably close scorecards for that one.

Ruiz has very quick hands and likes to get inside. Wouldn't be surprised if he gives Joshua similar problems to those that were posed by Takam and Povetkin early on.

I don't know. I liked his body language at the weigh-in; looked relaxed. He's at least not daft enough to sleepwalk onto his opponent's best shot in Round 1 like Breazeale did the other weekend. Hope it can be fun whilst it lasts.

Exactly. All things considered, it's a decent replacement.

He's 14lb heavier than when he fought Parker.
