  • "Every fight isn’t going to be a KO. I thought AJ fought a good tactical fight and didn’t fall into trap of trying to mix it up in exchanges. This was a good addition to his experience. He also wisely unpacked his jab for this one," wrote former undisputed heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis, who recently took to social media to praise unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua for his win over Andy Ruiz.

    AJ boxed his socks off and won the fight!!
    Watch any of Tyson Fury’s fights he runs and dodges every fight, yet he is the best in the world.
    All the Tyson fury fights since the Wilder fight have been boring, yet he's the best in the world

    Lets give credit when its due and stop the negative bull sh..

    AJ did EXACTLY what he should have done. His career was on the line and he took no chances. Ruiz blew his shot.

    Lennox is hands down the greatest modern Heavyweight champion (post- Larry Holmes) and by that I also mean greater than Mike Tyson who he beat resoundingly . So you always listen to his intelligent opinions. You often find British boxers are under-estimated far longer even by their own British fans. The same is happening to AJ. I remember Lennox was too for a long time, until he ruthlessly and methodically demolished the whole heavyweight division -Holyfield, Ruddock, Tyson, McCall , Klitsckho etc. Lennox would have survived in any era; he belongs up their amongst the greatest !

    Anthony is never the bravest fighter, he was running away jabbing and hugging to escape attack. Ruiz himself helped in anthony's victory by coming in fat heavy untrained and slow.

    A great breakdown of AJs performance... He was definately fishing for a weakness. Ruiz was such a tough Mexican he took everything AJ through at him. All AJ could do was outscore him in the end... Would have been nice to see fireworks but as LL says, not every fight goes that way... If He knocks out Pulev in his next fight, we'll be calling him a god..

      @Radrook So who in your opinion isnt a " fraud " in heavyweight boxing? This should be good.

    • newman447
      newman447 Month ago +2

      @Radrook No not really. It always amazes me how someone like you, can be so critical and have all the answers about the pinnacle of a certain sport, know all in the ins and outs, all from the comfort of your bedroom, without any experience at any level. It's your opinion, not fact, just your opinion, that you try to pass of as fact.

    • Radrook
      Radrook Month ago

      @newman447 A person doesn't need to be a professional boxer to detect fraud. That's like saying that you need to be a lawyer to detect that theft has happened. In short, your premise is seriously flawed.

    What that fight proved is that if Andy Ruiz couldn't land another shot that concussed AJ, he would have to deal with a full-strength AJ for however long the fight lasted, and that is a daunting task for any heavyweight. IMO, AJ beats Ruiz 9 times out of 10. It's just that Ruiz's 1 out of 10 win came up the first time they fought.

    • Kronen Communications
      Kronen Communications Month ago +1

      And gor all the talk about Andy's power, he could not knock out a concussed AJ for the remainder of the fight. This fight showed how limited Andy Ruiz boxing IQ is. He had no answers to the man he had called a Big Robot. Thr irony of him begging AJ to come to him so they could trade, yea AJ did come but it was always to throw a jab or two followed by a a right and out again. Andy was simply outclassed. It had nothing to do with weight.

    Listen,Joshua sticked to his gameplan,boxed and moved and didn’t get involved in a tear up which was the only way Ruiz was going to win!Hes learning all the time ,next up probably Pulev who himself will cause different problems for AJ.Let him rest for a while now he’s got the belts back ,watch Wilder and Fury fight(possibly)then hopefully he can eventually fight the winner in what could be the biggest heavyweight fight for years(financially anyway)We all want these huge fights to happen before it’s too late a couple of years down the line!!

    In regard to Lennox's comment, I think it's absurd to say a guy doesn't have a chin after being dropped by massive shots. It's ridiculous. Now if a guy is being continuously dropped by seemingly light shots, THEN you might claim that. No one CONTINUOUSLY takes massive shots and walks through them. Especially heavyweights.

    AJ didnt run to the haters or uneducated media. Let me explain.... Lets say you get into a fight with someone and a third party stop the fight because you were takin alot of damage. You call for a rematch. So, in the rematch , you already know not to exchange /go toe to toe because that will replay from the first fight because your foe is too fast for you. Since you're alot taller, your best bet is to utilize your jab and wait for a opening for your power punch, if it doesn't happen, it's fine because you're still doing damage/winning with the jabs. My conclusion, any one on this planet can win a fair fight with anyone, you just gotta find whats your best way of winning your fight. AJ's jab was his success. Plain and Simple!

      @DAKA TT He's known throughout the world as a defensive boxer. Mike Tyson being the polar opposite. People were complaining that AJ modified his style to a more ALI/Lewis/Klitch at range. That list is endless. If someone don't like it, dont watch it. But I so enjoyed Fury schooling Wilder just after Fury had crawled out of the gutter. Learnard v Haglar? They got videos lol. Most Ali fights. Hated Klitch though. Didn't like that.

    Expecting Lennox, a guy who was famously cautious during his reign, to agree that Joshua "ran", is a bit daft. This dude jabbed his way to a win over David Tua in similar fashion.

      @Fabesey Yeah AJ found the key to unlock the door. thats all you can ask of someone. Some [people dont understand the concept of how hard these guys hit. Your first clean punch taken can be your last. Its boxing, not punch flailing and hoping for the best. ;)

    • Fabesey

    Ruiz would have beaten Rahman. Never in the same pedigree. Rahman was never as fast and technical as Ruiz. Ruiz had more boxing experience than Rahman had as a pro fighter,hence, AJ had to be super smart. How come nobody is saying Evander was holding all night when he fought tyson. Please boxing is boxing......defensive or offensive.....

    It's the way. Aj beat klitchko. And braught Boxing back and took Boxing around the world on titles and resume he's great. But it's not just about what he does in the ring. AJs class in and out. And. I'm saying he is the closest thing since ali in so many ways

      @Joey Coco what are u on About mate. In the time AJs been Boxing he's braught heavyweight Boxing back to the mainstream from a dark dark place the hole sports. Been revived . And aj. Is a champ in and out the ring he's took Boxing around the world hes braught people together he's a gold medal Olympian 2x world champion 3xs Unified champion and yes all at a relatively young age. It's not just about wat AJ. Does in the ring. Like I said. He's the closest thing to Ali. There is. There similar. In lots of ways I'm not trying to compare. The two

Who went home with the Trophy has written his name of that history book. Bottom line.

Lool if anything AJ showed us he still got few surprises left for us. Andy was lucky thats it he isnt a champ just a kid who got a lucky punch in. Champions train not train to be competitive eaters
