Yes, Jermall is fighting tonight. Looking forward to watching the Ruiz vs. Joshua fight first.

I'm tuned in on DAZN. Just in case the fight comes later for some I won't post the winner. Don't want to be a spoiler. Who's carrying the Charlo fight?

Well that was disappointing to see Ruiz go flat in the fight.

I admit I have not watched enough of his fights but I thought I would have seen a more versatile fighter that was willing to work to get in and deliver such as Smoking Joe or Tyson, instead Joshua made Ruiz look a championship heavy bag.

If Ruiz doesn’t work his way inside better then he won’t be able to keep up with the 3 giants in the division. Ruiz might well get floored by Wilder anyway, but you guarantee it if you give Wilder range with his right.

Just lucky Joshua didn’t do that to him.

Ruiz gotta get serious again to get taken seriously.

It was funny, for a second I thought it was gonna be like the Great White Hype and the champ was all out of shape but still kicked butt.

Then reality set in. That’s how it goes.

Bye.

AJ did what he had to do to win. Fight was boring however. Was on the bike all night. Ruiz gained 20 lbs, seriously man?

Thanks I already googled it. Showtime at 6:00pst. Google is your friend.

Joshua fought a smart fight. He was on his toes for 12. I have feeling Fury is going to do the same thing to Wilder. He has to do just what Anthony did, stay away from Wilder's power. I had him winning the last fight with Deontay. That knockdown made the fight a draw.

Fury, Wilder official score card

just based off of his quote....

"It's all about preparation," Joshua said. "One day when I release a book on my career, I'll talk about my experiences. Anyone can do it, life is a roller coaster. I took my L and came back. "If you heard, we are going to do it a third [fight]."

For the money. This was Joshua's biggest payday.

He was overly cautious because he didn't want to get KO/TKOd again, so this strategy (Wlad's jab-and-hold) was the only way he could win. Clear, but boring win. Ruiz still buzzed him a few times despite coming in grossly out of shape.

They will probably do a trilogy because Joshua has no interest in fighting Wilder or Fury, who would both beat him. Joshua would be at a reach disadvantage against both Fury and Wilder, and he wouldn't be able to move away from them enough to get a win. Joshua's movement and reach was the main reason he won against Ruiz.

Looking forward to Fury vs. Wilder in 2020, and I predict Wilder will finish him this time.

If I have it right Wilder and Fury is scheduled for February 23rd. I think Fury will win a 12 round decision. He's the superior boxer with power. I wouldn't be surprised if he KO's Wilder.

I think GGG has shot his wad. Canelo vs Charlo would be a interesting match.

This behavior is what pisses me off about Canelo since he obviously has the talent to compete with anyone, but he chooses not to compete against top fighters in their primes. Canelo is robbing not only the fans, but his own legacy, as well, by constructing his career this way.

Word is that he didn't get to training until 2 weeks prior. His camp was begging him to get in the gym. Talk about handling success poorly...

A 2nd win against Joshua was going to set up some major $$$$$ with probably the winner of Wilder/Fury. Guy just wouldn't put the plate down.

Crawford's on tonight; ESPN 6:00PST. I don't know anything about Egidijus Kavaliauskas I pulled his boxrec 21 0 1 17 KO's. I'm not an aficionado. I don't know much about his opponents. I look for Bud to shine.

Bud is a beast. Kavaliauskas rocked Bud in the 3rd round. Announcers thought it should have been called a knock down. What ever, it woke Terence up. Took awhile but you could see the KO coming, 9th round TKO. Bud wouldn't say who he wanted next. He said he'd fight whoever they put in front of him. He showed his superiority. Egidijus is a tough fighter. Crawford has some of the fastest hands in the business.

all the 147ers are at PBC, Bud is gonna continue to be looked at as the P4P best but really fighting no one because Top Rank has no one at 47 but Bud.
