fucking hell.  I assume he has a rematch clause, but that has really set Joshua back hugely. Eddie Hearn must be gutted.

Rematch in the U.K later this year, Hearn's saying already. Ruiz out-boxed him pretty comprehensively

Bit embarrassing for Joshua to lose one of his journeyman fights - I’ve always felt he’s been a bit protected getting put in fights like this - Ruiz fluffed his lines and actually boxed Joshua

Elite fighters do lose and come back and dominate and the main example people are using is Lewis. However Rahman was blessed that night....Ruiz though?

I dunno he pretty much dismantled Joshua, not the foregone conclusion that Joshua wins the rematch whatsoever.

Also I know Katie Taylor gets some slagging for how religious she is, but when you get the luck that she did last night then yeah Team Jesus ftw.

Very impressive from Fury.
If he'd have been in this condition v Wilder he'd have won.

Jermall Charlo v Brandon Adams is on ITV4 tonight, from 2am again. The last fight that ITV4 did was back in May when Jarrett Hurd lost his light-middle (super-welterweight indeed!) titles to Julian 'J Rock' Williams. The channel's live feed unfortunately cut out for most of the last two rounds!

Jermall apparently has an identical twin brother named Jermell, so there you go.

Thanks for the heads up. Hurd vs Williams was a cracking fight. Big upset but Williams just had a relentless will to win.

The Charlos are indeed identical twins but fight at different weights. Go figure. Jermell fought last weekend and scored a brutal KO. Poor reffing to let Cota continue after the first knockdown though.

I don't know if it takes an incredible amount of bottle or stupidity to carry on after knowing you've just been chinned and will probably get sparked out in a minute.

Campbell vs Loma tomorrow. I genuinely think Campbell can give Loma some problems; he's no slouch, is skillful, rangy and has a huge height advantage and decent power. I still think Loma will win but odds of 21/2 on Campbell are tempting me to have a punt.

Did you see the Yarde fight last week? Cracking fight.

Loma should win but Luke worth a small nibble.

Heard it was a cracker but I've not got round to watching it yet. I didn't give Yarde a chance due to his relative inexperience but I'm glad he gave a good account of himself. Talking of light heavys I'm looking forward to seeing Buatsi again tonight, very impressive so far. He should be looking to step up soon too.

Loma was brilliant again last night, Campbell gave a good account of himself though.

Wilder has done it again, .Ortiz was no push over though, I don't like his arrogance (he has worked for it), Ruiz V Joshua 7the December.  This division is exciting regardless of all the contract beuracrecy.

Wilder is a freak of nature, that right hand is like something out of a comic book. When I watch him my heart is always in my mouth because it's like knowing the other guy has a sniper aiming at his head and at any moment, without warning, BOOM!

To beat him you have to KO him before he lands that bomb and considering his chin seems very decent I think the only person who has that power is AJ. Unfortunately AJ will probably get turned over by the fat Mexican again.

Wilder's power is probably the best in the world atm but hes not actually that good technically nor has he fought much really has he?

40 year old slow and past it Ortiz who was actually winning until the KO, and Fury who arguably beat him but for the corrupt judging, no one else stands out on his record.

He's certainly beatable by Fury/Usyk/Joshua/Ruiz Jr

Ruiz Jr weighs in at over 20 stone, Joshua under 17 stone.
I have got absolutely no idea which way this is going to go

Not a boxing fan, but One Night: Joshua vs Ruiz is a great little film (was on BBC last night). The slow motion shots of Joshua's legs (hell, his whole body) turning to rubber after that punch in the third was extraordinary.

Also, hats off to IMDB for labelling James Corden as playing 'herself' in it!

I think Ruiz might take this again. Who knows. If tubbins lands one early days like last time anything can happen. He seems like a nice lad too. Two men trying to brain damage each other in Saudi Arabia. Excellent.

Ruiz in his sombrero is fucking lovely. Looks like a nice bloke, almost adorable but bet he would easily murder someone for giggles.

Anthony Joshua is a bit cringe.

Absolute state of Ruiz though. Loved having a fat lad champ.

I'm not really a boxing guy but is the reason Josh and Ruiz are in the same weight division purely because he's such a tubber? Josh surely has 5 or 6 inches on the dude.

Ruiz would be a cruiserweight if he was in shape.

Absolutely great from AJ tonight. He jabbed and moved for twelve rounds when most thought he didn't have the skills or gas tank to do so. He looks a much better, looser fighter under 17st. If he can still bang at the lighter weight (which wasn't obvious tonight considering the tactics) then he's gonna be one dangerous motherfucker.

I totally agree, it's really good. Iron Mike is excellent value.

Well , tactically it was a solid performance/training routine Ruiz got bigger hoping to catch Joshua in the jaw, AJ got smaller and tired out the fatter boy(both are great fighters in their style).
