    You have the media machine known as AJ looking to avenge a loss and prove he wasn't "exposed"
    You have Ruiz who came along and ruined AJ's party but if he wins the rematch does that prove that he is a real player in the HW's or just that AJ was in fact "exposed"
    You have Fury who is now a part time wrestler
    You have Wilder who talks about killing people and not a lot else, yeah he is fighting Ortiz again but I think that will end early this time round, the old man will be knocked sparko within the first 4 rounds I reckon

    I just can't get myself up for it at the moment and I really don't care a fuck who wins it, actually that is a bit of a lie, if AJ wins he will be unbearable, and for that reason only I want Ruiz to win via a comprehensive KO
    You're not alone in that.


    I've read where Wlad wants to make a comeback and beat Foreman's oldest heavyweight title holder and even with that I'm not excited about it.


    The division has some talent, but the big fights aren't being made....just have AJ vs Wilder already. Even then the aura, the personalities, there's a distinct lack of spice to the division. There's no Floyd or McGregor or what have you to the division. Everything these days is just ho-hum scripted bullshit when it comes to pressers and everything. Tyson Fury tries bless his heart. He tries being interesting....he comes across more goofy than dangerous as does Wilder. AJ is blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand. Ruiz is an afterthought. Ortiz is a drug cheat (Fury is a drug cheat too ), Miller was a guy I was high on, but he certainly fucked that up.


    Nothing new, nothing fresh, nothing worth my interest, but I can still take a guess about a winner.


    Hell I wish there was a few Brewster's, Byrd's, Golota's, and Sam Peter's around truth be told and even those guys were relatively boring when it came to an interview.

    Ruiz only 3/1 having checked, unlike the 17 I got last time, I think I'm with you, can't be arsed

    If Ruiz wants more than 15 minutes of fame, somebody needs to tell him that 15 donuts a day is not good.

    Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz rematch: Kubrat Pulev expected to fight winner ahead of Oleksandr Usyk

    Kubrat Pulev is likely to fight the winner of Andy Ruiz Jr vs Anthony Joshua II, rather than Oleksandr Usyk.

    Pulev is the mandatory challenger for the IBF heavyweight title, while Usyk is the mandatory challenger for the WBO.

    With both titles on the line in Ruiz and Joshua’s rematch in Saudi Arabia, it is unclear who the winner will be mandated to fight, but the Bulgarian’s promoters are confident it will be Pulev.

    “Kubrat Pulev’s next fight will be for the IBF world heavyweight title,” his promoters Top Rank told Sky Sports.

    “If the Joshua-Ruiz winner decides not to fight Pulev, his next fight will be for the vacant IBF title.”

    Pulev has been beaten only once in 29 previous fights, and earned his position as mandatory challenger for the IBF title with victory over Hughie Fury.

    It seems likely that one of the two titles will be vacated by the victor of Ruiz-Joshua, unless an agreement can be reached between the two organisations.

    Amazing how a (very good) cruiserweight can have one fight at heavyweight against a limited opponent - and suddenly become number one mandatory contender for the WBO title. That must really piss off career heavyweights who have worked for a long time to get into that position.

    Add a couple of opponents and change the org... and we could easily be thinking back to David Haye. Especially the last sentence in your post.

    Might be off but I think he was actually put in #1 spot before even touched gloves with ol Witherspoon which makes it even more obscene. Once again I'm back to my thinking the heavyweights on whole are really overrated and overstated. Ruiz and AJ both have the feel of guys not long for the sport for different reasons. Wilder is having pointless do overs with the impediment of a ppv tag and at the rate he's going Fury will be headlining Dancing with the Stars or some shat. The way of the division future is there for all these younger guns coming on and Usyk who honestly seems more willing to face the 'best' than those who should be willing at this point.

    It's down to how big a sanctioning fee can you produce. He's got promotional muscle behind him, won that world series thing, has been in big fights and can give the WBO some decent paydays.

    Dillian Whyte joins Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz undercard to take on Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach

    Dillian Whyte will return to the ring to take on Mariusz Wach on the Anthony Joshua vs Andy Ruiz undercard in Saudi Arabia.

    The British heavyweight has not fought since his impressive victory over the previously undefeated Oscar Rivas in July – a victory that was overshadowed by a failed drug test.

    Whyte was provisionally suspended by the World Boxing Council pending an investigation into an adverse finding in a drugs test prior to his meeting with Rivas.



    The Londoner, who was cleared to fight by UK Anti-Doping and the British Boxing Board of Control, denied any wrongdoing, insisting he won his meeting with Rivas “fair and square.”

    He joins the card in Saudi Arabia that now features five heavyweight bouts on Saturday 7 December.
    Polish fighter Wach has won 35 of his 40 professional bouts, including his last two. The 37-year-old is struggled stepping up to anything resembling world level, however, having lost to Martin Banole, Artur Szpilka and Jarrell Miller in the last two years.

    Wach also has defeats to Alexander Povetkin and Wladimir Klitschko on his record.

    Joshua vs Ruiz undercard
    Alexander Povetkin v Michael Hunter​
    Dillian Whyte v Mariusz Wach​
    Filip Hrgovic v Eric Molina​
    Mahammadrasul Majidov v Tom Little
    Diego Pacheco vs TBC
    Hope Price vs TBC

    A week to go. AJ looking in shape and focused.

    Fight will be decided when ruiz lands his first decent punch. Joshua will stay focused and deal with it. Or fold.....

    If there is an early blowout, I think it's a Joshua win. He is very dangerous early on and can definitely hit and knock anybody out.

    Having said that, he got an early knockdown against Ruiz last time, and it was his overeagerness to close the show that led to him being countered and beaten up. It might make him more cautious.

    You would think that the longer the fight goes, the more it favours Ruiz as the demons will return to the beaten fighters head. I still can't see how somebody with Ruiz' body shape can be truly fit though.

    Whyte being allowed to fight after failing with D-Bol in his system and then proceeding to use illegal gloves is absolutely shameful. UKAD, BBBofC, Hearn, Whyte, all shameful.

    Illegal gloves?
