Man's a fool and a stain on the sport. Needs a beating off Joshua and to then crawl back whence he came. Wanting to kill a fellow athlete is just plain disgusting IMO.

He's certainly crossed the line. I enjoyed watching him get schooled by Fury, even if somehow the judges didn't see it, the sooner he drifts into irrelevance the better.

It's boxing and he's got a big sales point...he bangs hard. No way he becomes irrelevant short of a jail sentence, no matter how vile.

Think he becomes irrelevant the moment he loses the WBC title tbh. Who's going to want to fight him when he brings nothing to the table?

I reckon he'll bring that serious one punch threat which means he'll sell at his half of the PPV on any show against any top 10 heavyweight. Money talks. The flip side is, he's dangerous so why risk fighting him...but money still talks,

Rams shirt being held up at the AJ v Ruiz weigh in.

Not paying for this...can't see Ruiz lasting too long.

Me neither but only because I'm at work Sunday though

AJ will take a round or 2 to figure him out and then start unloading. It'll be like Molina, Breazeale and Martin. Ruiz will be cautious and if he throws anything threatening then he'll get a nasty reply. If he doesn't then the best he can hope for is "I survived x amount of time" 

He's not too bad is he? It's just these elite guys are too good. 

Better than the Miller fight. How that fat ****** got the AJ fight was pure talk. Fat punchbag

I've seen nothing of him to be honest. Similar level to Parker, but easier for AJ to land on? Good, but not AJ, Fury or Wilder.

Would have preferred to see the original opponent, I think AJ would have sparked him good and early too, and easier, but he was a knob-head whereas I can't dislike Ruiz.

Anyone listen to Colin Hart on Talksport Thursday night? 

He had Wilder as his current no1 purely due to his punching power irrespective of a dodgy technique. 

He said Joshua in 6 tonight. 

He then spoke about boxers with wasted talent and said Kirkland Laing was the best boxer he had seen.  Unfortunately, after beating Duran he took himself to Jamaica and smoked the local fags for a year.....

I also came across Naz v Kevin Kelly on a sky rerun this week. I forgot how crazy that fight was. What an entertainer he was back then.

Never been a huge fan of women's boxing, I know it's not for me to judge and it's a bit old fashioned but to see 2 lasses clubbing the living daylights out of each other just didn't sit right.

I've just watched the Katie Taylor fight and gone absolutely mental screaming and cheering. I can only remember getting into 3 or 4 fights so much.

Tyson v Bruno where Big Frank rocked him

AJ v Klitchko, to see Joshua come back and finish it the way he did was incredible.

Tyson fury getting up off the floor when it looked like he was out cold.

Rocky v Drago, nobody kills Apollo Creed and gets away with it.

It really was a stunning fight to watch, I think the Belgian lass was unlucky not to get the decision but I'm delighted for KT, so much courage it's not true. The atmosphere as well was incredible, she really is Box Office even on the men's under card, I honestly think people would pay to watch her if she was the main attraction.

He was gone and finished right from round 3. He never looked like getting back into it, you kept hearing him ask his corner what punch caught him, it was like he was stuck in a daze.

A real shock but fair play to Ruiz, he totally outclassed him speed wise.

I know there's a rematch but not sure how AJ comes back from this, especially in America, hearing them boo him, they were angry. Almost as if they felt cheated by the hype.

AJ brought this on himself.  Too many months between fights, Ruiz had a 'double' training camp, and has obviously watched AJ a lot.  To much 'big picture' and not enough with dealing with what is in front of you.  He could struggle to get back, unless Wilder sees this as an easy win.

I guess because he fought Wlad that we just assumed AJ would cope with getting hurt better against a lesser opponent but this raises big question marks against his recovery, stamina. 

He just looks like a pile of bricks when he's hurt and he seems to take entire rounds for him to even get movement back. He was close to being stopped by Wlad. I mean a couple of the knockdowns last night were just piss poor survival. 

Wilder has been rocked numerous times but he survives. AJ turns into a block of wood and starts hooking. He's terrible at trying to initiate a clinch. 

He'll come back from this. It's been hard for him being under so much pressure. He takes it well but I think he'll operate better with something to chase again. 

All that muscle looks great but he only has stamina when he's controlling the pace. Wlad was always going to test him but I don't think anyone would predict Ruiz Jnr to ask questions. Sure he stood a punchers chance as does everyone at those weights. But to beat AJ up? Wow. 

Fury with class as expected. He's a WUM but he's not a knob head. Wilder is a complete tool. 

I thought AJ answered any questions over his durability with his win over Povetkin. That last night was really terrible survival.
