    Completely agree. It’s not fair to say he’s been protected but he has had it quite easy really considering his profile. He’s certainly never been hit in the body like that before.

    Also Andy Ruiz is a very good technical boxer- fair play to him.

    Joshua is a prima donna and this result was coming sooner or later. Others will follow. The Mexican did have very quick hands for his size.

    I don’t think Joshua is a prima Donna just a victim of the management team. He is just a product to them.

    Caught him at least once behind the ear, more destructive than the chin at times

    I don't think AJ has avoided anyone, quite the opposite. Ruiz is a better fighter than the one he was scheduled to meet. I think Wilder has avoided him so this loss may work in his favour if he wins the rematch.

    Only seen highlights of the knock downs but AJ reminded me of Frank Bruno when he was hurt in this fight. He didn’t seem to have the natural instincts to grab to survive after being caught. I like AJ but never considered him a natural boxer. I don’t think he’d have handled Fury 7 his natural boxing skills. Not sure he could survive against Wilder either but this defeat has surprised everyone.

    Fury l believe would box AJ'S ears off- very underrated Mr Fury is.

    Let me think?

    Was a rematch already in the contract?

    SteveS1 I heard that, pardon?

    Oh yuss. A Hearn wouldn't have missed a trick like that. I find all the excitement interesting, how many people currently call themselves World Champion?

    Hats off to Ruiz Jr. Very fast hands, great counterpunching, great movement. Joshua went in for the KO too early in the 3rd round after knocking Ruiz Jr. down, and paid for it big time with a nasty shot on top of the head, which he never recovered from - a probable concussion.

    Yep that was the one that caught him behind the ear. He looked a different man after that, disoriented and sapped of energy.

    I heard some one on the radio say that AJ uses weights which are not conducive to stamina in the ring, i suspect their may be some truth in this.
