Rudenko and Arias (Arias for fucks sake --- a 50-year-old former cruiserweight journeyman that had his wife and daughter working his corner. If he knew he would have to go 10 rounds, because Hughie can't punch, he would have demanded more dosh) are better than anyone AJ has fought?
Once again --- There's a reason why Kevin Johnson, Sprott, Skelton, Bakhtov, Airich, Love can all take "world" champion/challengers the distance/late rounds but can't last 3-6-9 minutes with AJ.
There's a reason why Jason Gavern can take top fighters like Steve Cunningham (arguably Tyson's best win) the distance but not last 9 minutes with AJ.
There's a reason why Dorian Darch can take Hugie Fury the distance but not last 6 minutes with AJ.
AJ would annihilate Hughie. Fact.
