    Problem is many are decent punchers.

    Maybe if Fury and AJ could get it on (if they can get to the point they think each other are worthy) that may work for AJ.

    The way it descended for AJ in the last couple of rounds is a worry. He mentally looked weak. We may have a bit of a quitter on our hands, when we all assumed he was the opposite.

    I watched it again and it was a strange feeling to the fight, maybe seeing stuff that was not there but AJ looked scared and lost to me from the go, as the fight went on he looked worse, he unravelled badly and had no plan B.

    As for physically, he blew early and probably less active I have seen him in ages which is a worry and he seemed to sweat bad early...

    I think if she was male she would be getting much more exposure for her achievements.

    I read that there's a re-match clause but I don't know if that means the belts are automatically included in it as well, guess it depends on the body. Rumours that the IBF may enforce a mandatory so he might have to relinquish it for the re-match.

    Never seen Ruiz fight but he's got some fast hands, not what you expect when you look at him. Many people had suspected that Joshua wasn't improving with a few laboured wins recently and questions about his stamina. Have to see how he handles the re-match to fully judge him.

    Buncey was saying he's had a bad cold for 10 days?

    An interesting video (click-bait title, ignore that).

    Looking at some of the during and after pictures of the fight....the height difference and body condition of Ruiz is laughable.

    How it ended is a big worry for AJ.

    Losing to this guy (and not even with by a lucky punch) and looking as though he didn't fancy it..is telling.

    Was refused an Testosterone Exemption apparently, which is why he was flat.

    Just reading the thread:



    Between these tweets and the Dave Allen video, I wonder if AJ got banged up in sparring and was a bit foggy going into the fight? We can only speculate, but these are bits and pieces of information coming out. All adds to the intrigue of a re-match mind you...

    On the other hand, there's no blue tick on the twitter, so that might not be the real John Fury -- fake news?!

    Would he qualify for the blue tick treatment...?

    Re-match has been confirmed apparently. November or December.

    Surprised there's no noise on here for tonight. Still undecided as to which fight to follow tonight, Frampton / Galahad has had a fair bit of bad blood vibes in the build up and Fury /Schwarz seems a given but who knows after recent events.

    Think I might leave the Frampton* fight, go to bed and wake up early for the Fury fight. I think I'm getting old!

    *edit not him, Warrington!
