Be interesting to see if the winner of Taylor/Prograis wants to clear up all the belts. Got the sense from Prograis that if he won he'd be on to 147 fights against the big guns.

Winner of this versus winner of Taylor v Prograis for all of the belts potentially?

Seems logical in theory but I would imagine there will be some issues with mandatories. Is Caterall not mandated for the WBO for example?

A chance to be undisputed, then move up & jump in near the death in the W/W division?

Ruiz wants £40m to fight in the UK, clever boy.

He won't be that clever if he ends up getting tied up in court.

Does a bout for all the belts not trump any mandatories?

Zab Judah fighting for his life in hospital apparently. Didn't even realise he was still fighting.

Kim and Iole putting a slightly nore positive spin on it on Twitter it seems.

Glad to hear the mythical "focused Judah" turned up for that particular fight.... He better rap it now though although surely he would not get a licence now....

On the last knock down, from joshua hitting the deck to the ref stopping it is roughly 25secs!

The count is delayed by about 5 seconds at the start to send ruiz away when he's already far enough away and heading back to his corner. 

Eddie Hearn may as well just referee the rematch himself.

See the punch that he goes down with in the 7th it looks very very exaggerated from AJ!! go watch it its when he's back up against the ropes, think its a left uppercut from memory, he practically jumps about 2 seconds after hes hit.

Spencer Oliver and Jake Wood very much in the "AJ wasn't right" camp, saying they'd spoken to someone in AJ's camp who said there had been an incident a couple of days before the fight etc (with the insinuation being a heavy KO and him already being a bit concussed and that if it had been a fight against Wilder or Fury it would have been cancelled but as it was "just" Ruiz they went for it). I just can't see beyond the fact he was well enough to have Ruiz dropped and hurt but then decided to telegraph a left hook against a much quicker puncher and got found out. Why when you have such a reach advantage wouldn't you just use that instead of throwing his hooks and uppercuts?

Similar to Fury vs Wilder.

The other thing that makes me think that's bullshit is, why would he still be sparring a couple of days before the fight?

I'm with you, he thought he had Ruiz badly hurt, got sloppy going for the finish, got badly punished and never fully recovered.

Nope. Fury hit the deck at 2 minutes 21 seconds, was on his feet a 2 minutes 12 seconds.

Wrong again, H_B.

Don’t recall if it was Jake & Spencer or talksport podcast pointing out that if there was nothing wrong, how does he win the rematch then?
Presumably sticking behind the jab and fighting long but he’s not much history of that tbh

And the fight restarted at 2 minutes.

The other thing Jake/Spencer hinted at was the rematch clause being powder puff and that it would cost Ruiz very little in relative terms to bump the contract. 

AJ has a load of basic flaws that has seen him get wobbled in all his recent fights. Leaves his hands out (result - Povektin belted him), gets caught flat footed (result - Takam nutted him), doesn't have a great jab (result - Ruiz rattled him), his guard isn't great either - his left hand is all over the place (Povetkin and Ruiz hammered him for this with overhand rights). I don't agree with folk questioning his heart as he was concussed and bordering on delirious.
