So, let’s cut the bullshit, son. On the real, EVERYONE underestimated Andy Ruiz Jr. Like, only the most knowledgeable of boxing insiders gave him a chance to beat Anthony Joshua, man. Shit, I consider myself a connoisseur and my guy Thomas had to be the one to school me on Ruiz’ fast hands, fam. In any case, Ruiz just shocked the world and sent the Heavyweight division into a fucking tailspin.
Ok, for those who missed it, shit got real on Saturday night. Now, Joshua, the boxing pride of England, was set to make his American debut at Madison Square Garden. Originally, his opponent was supposed to be Jarrell Miller. However, as I detailed in a previous post, Miller righteously fucked up the bag, bruh. Anyway, on basically one month’s notice, Ruiz signed on to fight Joshua. All in all, most casual fans thought Ruiz looked like Gabriel Iglesias and didn’t give him a chance, son.
Moving on, the fight turned out toooooootally different than damn near everyone imagined, man. Shit, after being knocked down in the third round, Ruiz began to put them paws on Joshua, fam. I mean, he dropped Joshua twice in the same third round and then twice more in the seventh round. After Joshua began looking confused in his corner, the referee had no choice but to stop the fight, bruh. All I know is, I didn’t expect Joshua to get clanked that many times, son.
Look, to be honest, I always wondered about Joshua’s chin, man. Hell, when he got dropped by an old ass Wladimir Klitschko in 2017, I knew he could be vulnerable, fam. Frankly, that’s why I wanted to see him fight Deontay Wilder. Real talk, I wanted to see if his jaw could withstand Wilder’s right hand. All I can say is, after the slaps he received from Ruiz, he better stay faaaar away from Wilder, bruh. Keeping it a buck, Wilder might put Joshua on permanent hiatus, son.
In the end, I don’t know what to make of the Heavyweight division, man. Ultimately, I’m sure Joshua has a rematch clause with Ruiz. Meaning, he’ll have an opportunity to get his belts back. However, this loss puts a damper on the three-way race between Joshua, Wilder and Tyson Fury. By and by, this is exactly why I hate boxing politics, fam. The way I see it, all of these dudes should’ve fought each other already, bruh. Now, there are more obstacles in the way. *Sigh* Nevertheless, HUGE congrats to Ruiz, son. At the end of the day, there was no luck involved, brethren. The truth is, he plainly whooped Joshua’s ass, people. That is all. LC out.
