      Janos Revill - Don’t abbreviate. I’m not a mind reader. I thought my reasoning was sound, still do. Sometimes things don’t go as predicted. No biggie. You want me to say I made the wrong call ok. I’m good with that. I didn’t lose any money on it I can tell you that would be the only thing that would upset me. Owning the wrong pick is easy. Happy holidays

      @Relationship Nullifier what did I say bro he got out classed ruiz was lucky aj went in first fight not expecting to get hit the way he did a true warrior knows what he has to do. Ohhhhhh Anthony Joshua 🏆🏆🏆🏆🥊

      Janos Revill - AJ is likely to revert to the same mistakes under pressure. He’s not big on ring generalship or moving his damn head. His jab looked anemic in the first fight too. Ruiz should get inside and win the close exchanges again. He has a better chin too in my opinion. Joshua can be had. Ruiz by stoppage in the 10th or earlier.

    I like AJ the man, I just don't see him as a Heavyweight world Champion, he's too nice. He needs to thug up a bit, mouth off a bit and wind Ruiz up lots.

  • John CGW

    Is he kind of hinting here that AJ went outside of his instructions in the first fight?
    I don;t agree that this rematch is as simple as some are suggesting when they say "AJ just needs to box him at disatnce and win on points".

    It's not that simple / easy. The other guys have a plan too, and theirs undoubtedly will involve getting inside and letting those quick hands go. Ruiz knows he can't win on the outside, but he has a very good chance against any heavyweight on the inside.

    As a side note: I predict here that Wilder will not firm up with Fury till after he sees who wins this. He wants no part of AJ, but will take Ruiz if he wins again. Wilder is suffering from the same disease as Trump: he tells blatant lies right to the camera and his cult believe him. He says AJ doesn't want the fight, but in another breath he admits they're begging him to make the fight. He's a lying little shithouse and fate will catch up to him. Him and Fury fighting nobodies - they're both crap.

    go back and watch the fight closely. This trainer did not seem to notice that his fighter was concussed and very disoriented. AJ knows nothing about grabbing when he's hurt or jabbing and moving off his back foot, his training is limited. This trainer may be familiar to AJ, like an Uncle that comes round every weekend for beers and dogs but Joshua badly needs the same caliber training as Lennox Lewis or Mike Tyson or Holyfield . At the moment he is a very limited fighter in the skills department and I see zero hunger in his eyes.
